This soup was amazing! The combination of chicken and bacon along with the tomatoes and seasonings has so much flavor. I couldn't find any broccoli rabe so I substituted thinly sliced kale. I added that at the end and put the nutmeg in with the thyme and parsley.
This soup has such a nice depth of flavor! I loved the spicy addition of nutmeg to the broth. In place of cheese tortellini, I used sweet Italian sausage stuffed tortellini. The bacon took awhile to crisp in my dutch oven, so I browned it in a separate pan. This dish is a bit time consuming, but the taste is amazing!
