Italian Tortellini Soup

“You can pick up everything for this hearty soup at the supermarket on the way home, then put it together in minutes. To save more time, purchase sliced mushrooms. Serve with crusty bread and salad greens.” Gilda Lester - Millsboro, Delaware

    This soup was pretty good, although I didn't care much for the mushrooms in it (I do like mushrooms, just didnt like em in the soup). I think next time I will substitute zucchini or some other veggie. But the soup was pretty good nontheless.

    Very good soup. I didn't have any prepared pesto on hand so I used basil and a little italian seasoning instead...turned out great.
