How To Make shellys festive fall veggie & tortellini soup

  • Veggie & Tortellini Soup (OMG ~ Yummy!)
    After you have enjoyed your roast chicken or turkey, add to pot and cover with water. Add bullion and bring to boil. Let simmer about 15 min and strain the broth. Once the bone has cooled, pick off meat and add to broth. Add garlic, onion, carrots, zucchini, squash, tomatoes and onion soup mix. Cover with more water if needed (everything should be covered well in liquid). Add seasoning (herbs & spices) on hand, to taste. I had some bay leaves and used a couple of those also. Bring to boil and simmer about 15 minutes. Add spinach and tortellini; boil about 11 minutes and remove from heat. Cool about 5 minutes and sprinkle with fresh parmesan/romano cheese. Serve w/toasted garlic bread & enjoy!
