I really liked this soup a lot. It was a creative (and tasty) use of tortellini. Next time I'll probably add some more Indian-type spices (some garam masala or coriander, maybe); it's very good as written, too. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Asha!

this was a really good pre- dinner soup, i made this as a first course for an asian themed dinner. i did add 1 tbsp sambal olek, for added heat, the flavor was great and it cooked as directed.

This was quick to prepare and had an intriguing flavor. I was surprised to find a recipe using tortellini in this way, but so glad your recipe popped up in the random recipe search. I did throw in a cup of frozen mixed vegetables when adding the tortellini to give the soup a bit more substance. I also used 1 1/2 t. dried basil as I was out of fresh. All in all a recipe I will keep in my fast to fix cookbook as it uses ingredients I normally have on hand. Thanks AshaK!
