Years ago, I found the idea for tortellini with peas and carrots in a magazine and added my own touches to it. Even my meat-lover husband and son enjoy this. If I'm really pressed for time, I'll skip the basil leaves. —Kari George, Ellicott City, Maryland

"Incredibly easy recipe and both my kids ate hearty portions of it. I didn't use the basil and used both julienned and chopped carrots and they were perfectly done. I added a little shredded chicken and I would skip it next time. The reason I subtracted a star is that my husband and I found it to be bland. I added some parmesan cheese and some cayenne and that helped."

"I submitted this recipe, and it is supposed to be made with shredded carrots, not julienned. I have never had a problem with the carrots being undercooked using shredded."

"This was easy but I added some grilled chicken chunks. Any vegetable would work in this soup. Carrots need to easily cook 5 mins before adding tortellini."

"This was easy but was not a hit. I think the carrots needed longer to cook as they were still hard and crunchy and the tortellini was almost overdone. I would add the carrots a few minutes before the tortellini if I were going to make it again."
