Delicious! We enjoyed this so much! I made as directed making very few changes. I added fresh baby leaf spinach and also used kidney beans instead of peas. I used spinach filled ravioli in place of the tortellini which made a wonderful change. Very quick, very simple to throw together with all ingredient on hand for a great Saturday night meal! Thank you so much, Annaica, for a great new meatless soup recipe I am sure to use again, and again!
5 stars for taste, but I'm rating this 10 stars for the brilliance of being able to magically make a delicious and healthy meal so fast... and without messing up my kitchen! From the time I spoke to my husband on his way home from work and I claimed that I had no idea what to make for dinner, to the time he walked in the door (about 15 minutes!!) finding this delicious soup sitting on the stove ready to be served... I was super excited that I could pull off such a yummy meal so quickly! I didn't have tortellini on hand, but I had mushroom filled ravioli. I made my soup this way: chopped onion, julienne carrots, fresh chopped tomatoes, cubed zucchini, chicken broth, peas, mushroom filled ravioli, and a dash of parmesan to finish it. Everything was so flavorful that I didn't even need to add herbs, spices, or seasonings... something that has never happened to me before! Thanks for a brilliant soup recipe! This will be my go-to when I don't know what to make for dinner!!
I started making this and then realized I didn't have carrots, onions or peas. So I added celery, spinach and mushrooms. It was delicious.
The most flavorful soup ever. I added fresh green and yellow wax beans to the peas, carrots and onions and doubled the recipe. Other than that, I made as directed. So glad to have lots of leftovers. I will prepare this a lot in the future. It's amazing!
I was so glad to find a way to use a couple packages of frozen tortellini that have been in the freezer forever. I hate to say this because it irritates me when people put garlic in EVERYTHING when it doesnt need it but I really think this benefited from a couple cloves of garlic. I also added 1/2 tsp italian seasoning. I ended up with 2 packages of baby portabello mushrooms in my produce delivery used half of a package and had some zucchini needing to be used. Skipped the carrots due to laziness and wasnt feeling the peas.
I browned the onions, mushrooms and added the garlic and zucchini to the pan near the end to avoid burning the garlic. Deglazed with the veggie broth and added the tomatoes. Reduced it a tiny bit cooking 15 min until the flavors developed. Added the tortellini cooked and then the basil.
I think it would be good with potato and chicken instead of the tortellini.
Very good! I used to make a similar soup but I used cooked chicken in it, this was very similar. I had forgotten how good that soup was and will now be making this one in it's place or adding chicken to it when I feel like chicken soup. Thanks for the recipe!
Delicious soup! I used frozen edamame and had to use dried basil...the store didn't have fresh. It was still great! Made for Zaar Newest Star Tag Game 2011.
Lovely soup. I added the optional basil. Made for Photo Tag Game 2011. :)
Excellent and VERY easy. I sauteed one piece of andouille sausage with the onions, then used fire-roasted tomatoes and a can of mixed peas and carrots. I will keep this one handy for cold nights when we need a fast and easy supper!
What a great idea for an easy supper! We used chicken broth rather than vegetable broth (easier to find cans of in our little town). Also used light red kidney beans rather than peas, and were lucky to find some whole-wheat cheese tortellini. It did need a little salt and pepper (I might throw in a pinch of red pepper flakes next time, too), but that's no big deal. Definitely add the basil if you can, both for flavor and color!
