Fishmama is hosting a healthy recipe swap over at Life as a Mom, and I am so excited to join in! I am one of those who really wants to eat healthy and serve wholesome foods to my family, but when push comes to shove I resort to my old stand-bys. The recipe I am posting, Tortellini Soup, came from a friend I used to teach with. This recipe could not be easier.
1T olive oil
1 onion, chopped (fresh or frozen blend)
3 cloves of garlic chopped or pressed
1T Italian Seasoning
3 cans of chicken broth
1 can of petite diced tomatoes
1 jar of picante sauce
1 can of tomato sauce (if desired)
1 bag of frozen meat or cheese tortellini
- In a large pot, sauté onion and garlic in the olive oil until onions are clear
- Add 3 cans of chicken broth, Italian seasoning, tomatoes, picante sauce and tomato sauce and bring to boil
- Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes
- Raise heat and add tortellini, cook until soft and warm thought out
That’s it! Serve with bread and salad. It is a favorite of ours on those cold Kansas nights.
