I love peas.

 

We used some carrots we had from another recipe that were already cooked, and a bag of frozen peas. You can easily use canned vegetables, or a bag of mixed peas and carrots.

If you have fresh carrots, you can use them, but it will affect your cooking time unless you pre-cook them first. Any questions, just shoot us a comment.

And no tortellini soup would be complete without delicious cheese filled tortellini. Use your favorite – fresh, frozen or homemade.

The yummy is simmering.

 

If you are using your own broth, the soup already has a good flavor base. If using only water, or a store bought product (which is totally OK), you may want to taste and season to your preference. For this tortellini soup, stick with basic seasonings like salt, pepper, thyme, or a little sage to highlight the chicken flavor.

Gently boil the tortellini, simmer, and serve. You don’t want to overboil the soup, because the cheese filling will start to seep out of the tortellini. A nice low boil is perfect.
