Reviews for Easy Tortellini Soup
"I have made this twice, and it is very good! The 2nd time I did add some italian sausage meatballs to it and it was outstanding. No other changes....my soup loving husband Loves It!"
"Excellent! I Also added two cups of rotisserie chicken to make it a meal."
"This was delicious!! I added some cut up chicken too."
"Delicious soup and so easy! I inadvertently grabbed a can of crushed tomatoes instead of diced tomatoes and decided to go ahead and use them. As a result, the soup didn't have the tomato chunks and didn't look much like the picture. My husband ate two servings and said that he liked the smoother consistency better than if I'd used diced tomatoes. I used reduced sodium broth to keep those numbers down and I don't think that it affected the taste at all. This soup went together so fast that it was almost as easy as opening a can of pre-made soup and it sure tasted better! If I were going to make any changes (other than my accidental oops), I might add either cooked shredded chicken or maybe some browned mild Italian sausage. A keeper!!"
"I agree with the other reviews that it could use more liquid and I would put in a little less of the balsamic vinegar. It was too strong in my opinion. Otherwise, it was very simple to make and seems to be a healthy soup."
"I have made this recipe several times and I'm never disappointed ! This is better than restaurant quality, and super easy to make."
