Tomatoes, carrots, green beans, potatoes, corn and celery are the perfect complements to convenient frozen tortellini in this heartwarming soup. Add a crusty loaf of bread and a green salad, and dinner is ready in no time.
This soup is packed with flavor. Thanks to convenience products, it’s perfect for a weeknight supper, but it would also make a tasty lunch some snowy Saturday. —Joanne Meehan, Shippensburg, Pennsylvania
I'm currently retired and an Assistant Scout Master of a troop. I've taught boys to cook for 35 years. This is a nice recipe for teaching basic cooking skills. Plus, the soup cooks all day, leaving you free to do other things.—Earnest Riggs, Niles, Michigan
My sweet father-in-law, Pop Pop, would bring this chunky soup to our house when we were under the weather. We like it so well, we take it to our own friends who need comfort. Always does the trick. —Sue Webb, Reisterstown, Maryland
The beauty of this soup is that you can roast the vegetables separately in the oven while it's simmering away. Then I simply add them in during the last minutes on the stovetop. I love that the roasted vegetables keep their own bright flavors that add to this earthy bowl of warmth. —Gayla Scott, West Jefferson, North Carolina
