MMMMMMMM! I made this after copying from the same magazine. I used a can of fire roasted tomatos and grilled up some turkey italian sausage, sliced it and threw that in too. Very hardy. I did make one mistake though...because I made this the night before and warmed it back up the tortellini were over cooked (Duh). So next time if I make it ahead I won't put the tortellini in until I'm rewarming the soup. Thanks for a super easy go-to recipe. Served with some warm focaccia bread and made a great meal out of it.
RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I'm a 20-something who has been cooking for a long time. I tend to follow recipes when I cook 90% of the time, but I'm slowly learning to be more relaxed about modifying them. I spent a year in Japan when I was in high school, so I have a great love of Japanese cuisine. I also very much have a sweet tooth, so I like to bake quite a bit. <br> <br>I been slowly attempting to remove most processed foods from my diet along with high-fructose corn syrup and partially-hydrogenated fats. I has gone well so far, but there are some frustrations. It can be problematic because such foods are often more expensive, and low-fat foods can contain a plethora of non-natural ingredients. <br> <br>See my cookbook collection: http://www.librarything.com/catalog/kyshandra&tag=cookbook <br> <br>My favorite food blog: http://www.101cookbooks.com
