Chicken Tortellini Soup

Chicken Tortellini Soup

I love warming up with a hot bowl of soup, but since the toasty temps in Austin are just starting to drop, I’ve only just started to make them again. I especially love this chicken tortellini soup… it’s a great all-in-one meal with soft, flavorful veggies and tender tortellini combined with chunks of chicken.

I either serve this soup with a loaf of my Parmesan Herb Garlic Bread, a big leafy salad, or both if hubby and I feel hungry enough for a big meal!
