After a quick warm stint, it has continued to be colddddd in Charleston.  It took awhile for winter to arrive and now it won’t leave!  Yall know that when I have a holiday off it tends to give me that extra time to actually make a homemade meal (this isn’t always normal with everything else going on in our lives), so I found a soup recipe that I hadn’t made yet, but had eaten at my mom’s and enjoyed.  I was pleasantly surprised when it took a short time to put together, which gave me more time for projects!

Tortellini Soup


  • 42 oz chicken broth
  • 20 oz package tortellini
  • 1 can diced tomato
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp basil
  • Green onion or spinach to taste

Put chicken broth in a large pot and bring to a boil.  Add remaining ingredients.  Simmer for 10 minutes then serve.

Results: In Hunter’s words: “This was tastier than I expected”.  Considering how few ingredients are in it, the soup really is better than you might think and more filling.  I was thinking I might be hungry later, but wasn’t.  We had leftovers that were easy to warm up for work so a win-win and perfect for colder days!
