What a *GREAT* soup. It's so simple to make with ingredients you probably already have. I used Three Cheese-Rainbow Tortellini, and pink kidney beans. So filling too. I tasted the soup shortly after adding the balsamic vinegar, and wasn't really pleased with the taste. After it sat for a few hours (I made it shortly after lunch) I served it for supper. Well......I highly suggest making it ahead of time. The flavours blended nicely and was very smooth and comforting. What a treat it turned out to be. Thanks Floridanative for a fantastic soup. One that will be made many times. Made for: Soup is On! ~ Jan 2010 - Diabetic Forum
This is an outstanding soup. To make it more diabetic friendly, the tortellini was reduced to 3/4 cup of dry and some lean ground turkey seasoned with Italian sausage seasoning was added and browned with the onion. This was served with a salad. Made for January 2010 event in the Diabetic Forum *Soups On*
This was delicious! I browned up a pound of Italian sausage and added it to the soup to make it a little heartier. However, it would be perfect without it, too. Really yummy! Thanks!
Yummy!!!! This was super good. I was going out of town for a week for work and the hotel had a mini kitchen in my room. I made this before I left so I would have a nice lunch everyday. Because I knew it would be eaten over the course of a few days, I used dried basil so the fresh wouldn't get all slimy. I also used dried cheese tortellini from Trader Joe's. I was shocked at how "fresh" it tasted!! I almost couldn't tell the difference at all. This was even better the second day too. The balsamic vinegar brings a wonderful taste to this! I will add celery next time just because I love it. I used a little less chicken broth, just because I like my soups thicker. This is a keeper! Thanks!
