Amazing Creamy Chicken Tortellini Soup

I created this soup to make my husband dream about it jealously. My italian hubby is a great cook, but sometimes, I just want to be a little bit...mysterious with what I cook, so he can't figure it out.I wanted a soup that was a main course, or an appetizer, that would be good with bread, or with lasagna, and even better the next day (if it lasted!) With five kids, it had to be better than good, creamier than creamy, and easy to make! This soup fit the bill, and he's been in love with it ever since! Hey, after 26 years, a girl's gotta' do what a girl's gotta do, right? Enjoy, y'all!
