Reviews forTortellini Primavera Soup
"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 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."
