"A great soup recipe: I did make a few changes simply to utilize what I had on hand. Instead of chicken broth, I used beef broth and instead of cheese tortellini I used frozen beef ravioli. I also used a quart of our home-canned tomatoes rather than the 28-ounce can the recipe called for. My version turned out delicious and we enjoyed it very much!"
