Now that cooler weather is here, this recipe I created some years ago came to mind. I thought, AHA! I should share! Hope you enjoy this soup. I have made it for friends who were sick and the comment is always the same: " This is really good! slurp, slurp!"

Serves:

six small bowls or 4 large bowls

Prep:

20 Min

Cook:

40 Min

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

1 medium
onion, any type, chopped or sliced
3 clove
garlic, chopped
2 stalk(s)
celery, chopped or sliced
2 large
chicken broth, low salt (i use the large containers from trader joe's)
1 can(s)
large italian plum tomatoes, or any kind
1 or 2 bag(s)
ready made meatballs, or homemade. may use beef, turkey, or vegetarian type.
1 pkg
tortelini, any type. i use dried or refrigerated from trader joes
1/4 lb
sliced mushrooms, any type
2 Tbsp
italian seasoning
salt and pepper to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a dutch oven or large pot, add all above ingredients except meatballs and Tortelini, salt and pepper.
2
Simmer on medium/low heat until celery is medium soft. If using whole tomatoes you may want to crush them down while the soup simmers.
3
When celery is medium soft (about 20 minutes) add meatballs and tortelini to soup. Simmer until tortelini is done, about 10 minutes.
4
Salt and pepper to taste.

If you like a stronger chicken broth flavor, use boullion cubes or a flavor booster, it's all a matter of taste.

If using homemade meatballs, cook them before adding to soup (This will increase your prep time somewhat, or make ahead of time)
