Great soup! I added 2 diced zucchinis. I used chicken and herb tortellini but a 20 oz. package. I added V-8 juice to make more of the soup part for all that tortellini. I also used Hunt's diced tomatoes with garlic, basil and oregano. Oh so good!
I chose this recipe to make this week and as I was cooking it, realized it is similar to one I have posted. The exceptions are the addition of pepperoni slices and Parmesan cheese, so I went ahead and added the pepperoni, and sprinkled with Parmesan cheese at the end. This is a wonderful, filling soup.
Delicious, I wasn't sure about the diced tomatoes because I don't like cooked tomatoes (the texture, not the flavor)but this was wonderful. I loved the flavor so what I did was puree 3/4 of the soup once it cooled a little then added it back to the pot with the other 1/4. I was much happier with the texture. The flavor was incredible, thanks for sharing. It was a nice change on a cold snowy night, made me want to be in the garden......come on spring!Thanks Jilibean! 4/24/13-just an update, we loved this so much I made a few batches and froze them with the tortellini separately, just defrosted and cooked up ,it was still fabulous. I have added it to my freeze ahead OMC because it did so well. Thanks again.
