Tortellini Soup …in a pinch

 

Although this is a quick in a pinch dish, those cold winter nights ahead will be comforted with a bowl of soup. Not to be confused with my basic Chicken Soup, this is merely a put together in 10 minutes;  “Rescue me, I’m sneezing ” dish. Should you enjoy it as is; or add your own creativity to a favorite finish, I prefer this in comparison to opening a can or package. The ingredients used are probably already at hand!

Prep & cook time 30 minutes…..

Needed

2 – 4   cups chicken stock     ( I normally have this on hand, if not I

Light & Quick!

use a store-bought carton)

1   handful baby sweet carrots

1  tbsp  small onion section grated

1  tbsp olive  oil

1   tbsp  butter

salt & pepper to taste

3   sprigs parsley

1  pkge  Tortellini

While preparing tortellini; add remaining ingredients to a saucepan and heat slowly. If I am using a store-bought stock, I sometimes add 2 tablespoons of base with a cup of water. Allow time for carrots to cook; when tender, add cooked tortellini.
This is a favorite of my grandchildren for an after school pick me up on a cold day. Much healthier than a fast food pickup!
