From BHG.com. The original recipe suggests using the broccoli-cauliflower-carrot mixed vegetables. I couldn't find that mix so I used 1 cup of a broccoli-cauliflower mix and 1 cup of a carrots-corn-peas-lima bean-green bean mix. If you are using a shelf-stable tortellini (like Barilla) add an extra cup of liquid, either chicken broth or water. If you are using refrigerated or frozen tortellini, the amounts below should be satisfactory but use more if you like.

  3. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 to 6 minutes or until tortellini are tender.
  4. Stir in parsley.

I love how easy this soup is to make. We all loved it, and I'll definitely make it again, especially when time is an issue, but I want to make filling, hot meal. I used 9 oz refrigerated tortellini, 2.5 cups frozen broccoli, cauliflaur, carrot mix and two 14.5 oz cans reduced-sodium chicken broth. This would be good with almost any vegetable combination. Next time I'll add some fresh garlic. I served this with store-bought crusty olive oil and rosemary baked bread. The whole meal was fabulous!

Tasty, easy and filling. I made this with the broccoli, cauliflower, carrot mix. The only thing I added was garlic. I enjoyed this for lunch today and I'll make it again. Thanx for sharing.
