The cold weather makes me want soup and I had the ingredients for a wonderful soup recipe I found on the Internet. Found it on one of the blogs I love to read and unfortunately I didn't write it down like I usually do.
3 T. Butter
2 Stalks of Celery
1 sm onion - chopped
1 carrot - peeled and chopped
2 cloves of garlic minced
8 C Chicken Broth
4 C water
20 oz. cheese filled tortellini
1/2 t pepper
1/2 t nutmeg
Parmigiano - grated
1. Into a large dutch oven, melt the butter over med-low heat. When melted, add celery, onion, carrot and garlic. Cover and reduce heat, cook on low till veggies soften.
2. Add broth, water and increase heat to med-high and bring to a boil. When boils, add pepper and nutmeg. Reduce to low and add tortellini and cook till al dente.
3. Garnish with Parmigiano when serving.
I didn't have celery so left that out and made a half batch. I used the dried tortellini in the spinach/cheese flavor but you could use the fresh or the frozen too.
It was delicious!!! I would highly recommend this soup!!
