Our family loves this soup! I lost the recipe and was so happy to find something like my original here. I add whatever veggies I have on hand. I also add extra salsa. I cook my tortellini separately and only add whatever I am sure we are going to eat, b/c I don't like mushy pasta. I like to keep a container of tortellini and a container of soup in the fridge for weekday lunches.

By far one of my favorite soup recipes of all time. It's so simple and is excellent on a chilly night. I usually double the tortellini or my BF ends up picking them all out and keeping them for himself. Even makes excellent leftovers!

This was indeed flavorful, but it tasted more like a sauce to me - I think I may try this again with some beef or chicken added and serve it over tortellini as a sauce rather than serve as a soup. Thanks for posting an interesting combination!
