Tortellini Soup

I came up with this recipe when the weather was beginning to turn cold and I wanted to make a nice "warm you to your bones" hearty soup.

I am a vegetarian, so I stick strictly with vegetables and vegetable broth, but you could easily adjust this recipe to meet your families personal tastes.
