I’m loving this soup — it’s a great twist from your traditional vegetable soup. The tortellini adds a unique Italian flavor and is the perfect dinner for a cold night! It makes a bunch and leftovers freeze well for any day of the week. The pasta can get squishy if you leave it in the refrigerator for a long time so either eat it or freeze it or add the tortellini individually each time you heat it up!
