This is a very hearty, satisfying soup. Instead of fresh tomatoes, I used a 14.5 oz. can of diced tomatoes. For the tortellini, I used fresh whole-wheat cheese tortellini. Other than those changes, everything else was as written. This will definitely be a repeat recipe this winter. Thanks for posting. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders Tag Game.

Very good. Used meat-filled tortellini and my family loved it. They want me to make it again.
