This is a wonderful hearty soup that is very easy to put together and tastes like you have been cooking it all day. It does make a lot so I package it up and put it in the freezer so it's ready at a moment's notice. If I'm freezing it I don't add the pasta or tortellini before freezing. Once it's thawed I add the cooked pasta and tortellini right before serving. Serve with some crusty garlic bread and a salad and your family will think you are amazing.
