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!"

How to Make Sadie's (That's Me!) Tortelini Meatball Soup


  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)
