Basil Tortellini Soup Recipe

This soup is delicious, colorful and quick. I keep the ingredients on hand for a fast meal with a loaf of crusty bread. It's also good warmed up the next day—if there's any left! —Jayne Dwyer-Reff of Fort Wayne, Indiana

"Good and quick..my favorite kind of dish! To make it even easier, use canned diced tomatoes . Also, if you are not a fan of basil (I'm not) you can substitute cabbage."

"I have made this many, many times - it's my absolute favorite! I use a can of petite diced tomatoes instead of fresh, and double up on both the basil and the balsmaic vinegar - yum! I was visiting my family in Georgia and made this for them - instant hit! My sister made it and added italian sausage - she said it was delicious that way too. You just can't beat the fresh basil flavor, and it's so easy!"
