Easy Meatball Tortellini Soup

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by PugGrannie

Delicious soup that is a family favorite. Found it in the newspaper a few years ago. Usually use Progresso Italian bread crumbs. For color I grate one or two carrots into the pot when I pour in the broth. Servings are main-course servings.
