This Thanksgiving weekend has come and gone, and once again, we’re reminded of how quickly those precious moments fly by.
And though the official day for Giving Thanks is over, I am not done giving thanks.
I’m holding fast to my goal of counting. My blessings-list is growing steadily, and hopefully I’ll reach One Thousand Gifts, and more!
Can I add warm soup to that list? I already did…
This Chicken and Vegetable Tortellini Soup is just the type of warming meal we are grateful for when time is knocking at our door – and we gotta answer quick!
The air is chilly and snow is begging to stroll its way in, getting closer by the day (I’d be stoked with a late arrival.) Hot soup, please!
This is one of those hearty, warm, comforting meals that is minutes from stovetop to tabletop…
We love throwing together a huge potful of this flavorful chicken and vegetable tortellini soup, letting it fill dinner’s role for two nights. Leftovers are always appreciated, with a houseful of hungry boys and packed schedules.
Leftover roasted chicken or turkey can easily be used in this delicious recipe; it’s a perfect solution for any leftover poultry you may have sitting around.
We adore this soup with carrots and kale, but spinach or any of your favorite veggies would be great for this flexible recipe.
This chicken and vegetable tortellini soup is savory, hearty yet healthy, and perfect for a winter evening meal. It reminds me of our favorite from-scratch Hearty Chicken Noodle Soup, but with a fast ‘n tasty twist.
If you’re super busy, but still want a delicious weeknight meal, this tortellini soup has got you covered.
