Awesome soup! Great flavor and very flexible for what’s on hand. House smelled like Italian restaurant and everyone loved! We like the kick red pepper flakes adds so we use about 1/4 teaspoon. As a volunteer field editor with Taste of Home magazine I love great tasting dishes that are easy to customize!
New family favorite. Instead of water add more chicken broth, instead of diced tomatoes add diced tomatoes with green chili (rotel works well). Wonderful with fresh bread.
My husband said “This recipe is a keeper!” I don’t hear that very often from him. Great taste with a little “zip” to the broth. Will definitely make this again.
I’ve made this a couple of times. Very flavorful and filling. I love this delicious soup.

I made this a couple of months ago and my husband, who is not a fan of soup, mentioned it tonight and would like to have it again. We did not have much leftover when I made it so it was definitely enjoyed by our children, too.
Amy, I'd suggest that you just add the frozen tortellini to the soup and let it simmer until the pasta is done - it should only take a couple of minutes more than indicated for the refrigerated tortellini alone. This has become my husband's favorite cool-weather soup. I've found that we always have leftovers with just the two of us and the tortellini tastes great in this soup, but it absorbs a large amount of the broth after the first day and kind of "takes over". I discovered that replacing the tortellini with fresh gnocchi is a fabulous substitution and the gnocchi is much better behaved in the leftover soup.
I love this soup! A friend passed it to me and it’s so so good! If I have frozen “refrigerated” tortellini , should I cook first or thaw & add? Thx! Submitting this comment for 2nd time because I forgot to click the stars??
