Reviews for Chicken Tortellini Soup
"Delicious, easy and healthy! The only addition I would make is to add more liquid. By the time the last two servings were reached in the pot there was very little broth left."
"This soup was very good. I didn't have the refrigerator tortellini but I did have frozen tortellini. So I cooked the frozen tortellini and then added it to the soup. This soup is great on a cold night."
"I make broth a lot and I found an awesome trick. I will use the carcass of a Costco whole chicken, put it in a cheese cloth and simmer for a couple hours with about 3 boxes of store bought broth. I put the wrapped chicken in the pot with the broth and fill the pot to a level I want with water. I always have people asking why my soup is so tasty. A turkey carcass would work too. I'd break it down, put it in cheese cloth to fit in a pot. Very flavorful."
"Flavorful, simple and quick to make and, best of all, very healthy!! This will go into the "soup rotation" schedule at our house! :)"
"We made this using the body and scrap meat of a whole chicken we cut up another night. By doing that, we cooked it will all broth. Everything went together well. My husband preferred to soak up the broth with bread then add cheese to all the bits. I enjoyed it sans cheese."
