This soup was really good my husband loved it. I made it for my grandmother and aunt after a long day of shopping and they thought it was wonderful. very very easy to make. Served it with salad and french bread. yum yum!!
I'm not a big soup eater, but this one hit the spot. It was very good and very filling. The only thing I did differently was to use Southwest Chicken & Herb boullion instead of regular to give it a little extra flavor. It was very good ~ easy too!
I really enjoyed this soup. I was a little free-wheeling with the ingredients (handfuls of spinach instead of cups, garlic powder instead of fresh garlic, guestimated amounts of liquid) but I don't think I did too much damage to the original idea. I thought I had fresh garlic, but as it has been many months since garlic harvest, it turned out to be no good, so had to use garlic powder. Even though I was a bit heavy handed with the broth, I ended up adding a bit more water at the end, as the tortellini soaked up a lot of liquid. The recipe seems to be unclear about what kind of tortellini it calls for (fresh,frozen or fresh,frozen) and I used dried, so that is probably why it was a thirsty soup. The recipe didn't state the size of the tortellini package, so I just threw in a couple big handfuls (my package was a Costco sized giant one.) The flavor was mild, but nice. I didn't have fresh basil either (what didn't I change here?) so used 2 tsp. dried. I'm sure fresh would have been much better, and the flavor would have probably been a little more intense. I'm sure I'll be making this again, hopefully with fewer substitutions. I may add a zucchini next time, as I think that would be a nice addition to the veges.
This soup was easy and very good. I sprinkled imported parmesan cheese on top of each serving. I think this added another layer of flavor.
Very good. Next time I make this recipe I will halve the black pepper.
Soooo yummy!! Thanks for the recipe!! My husband and I both loved it! :)
I love this soup! I make it when I have friends coming for lunch or if I have vegetables that need to be cooked. It's great left over, too, so don't worry about making too much.
I used seasoned stewed tomatoes and still added the spices called for but thought the flavour was lacking a bit. So, I added fresh grated parmesan to each bowl when I served it and that seemed to add a nice dimension. It is a nice hardy soup and goes well with crusty Italian bread to sop up the juices. Thx s'kat!
Seems like it could use a little more flavor. I stirred in some leftover basil pesto andr that really brightened it. Salt and a touch more garlic would be nice.
Delicious. Even with ancient celery, frozen cheese tortellini (nuked for 2 minutes in the microwave first) and frozen spinach (ditto). Lots of flavor, great combination. Thank you.
