Tortellini Soup with Basil

Alicia .


For Valentine's Day my fiance and I had a guest couple over for dinner, and since it was a special occasion with guests I decided to do a multi-course dinner with an Italian theme.

With the amount of work needed for the other parts of dinner I cheated and used premade tortellini.

My favorite way to have this is with my chicken, basil and goat cheese recipe for tortellini and ravioli. I promise, it is divine!
