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.
Simply amazing flavor. My pickiest soup eater noted it was delicious. First time I've used fresh basil in recipe - wow! Did chop 2 celery stalks and also diced 1/2 onion which I added at the beginning to the soup. Thank you for posting the recipe.
