Easy Tortellini Soup

This is the easiest 20 minute soup ever. Anyone can make it. Well, anyone who can chop an onion and boil stock. It really is that simple. The soup comes out looking elegant and would be a lovely recipe to showcase homemade tortellini… if you happen to have any lying around.

    MMM looks amazing! I’ve never thought about using tortellinis soup. It looks like wanton soup.


    1. The tortellini works so well in this soup. It does sort of look like wonton soup with mini dumplings.
