Tortellini Soup

Melinda Alani


This recipe was given to me by a first generation Italian. I made it exactly like the recipe and it was excellent. The optional chopped garlic (my addition) sent it over the top. Excellent for those cold fall days. Don't let the long list of veggies put you off. This soup is worth the effort to make. Serve it with hot crusty bread and shaved Parmesan cheese.
