Tortellini Soup

Doreen Fish


For the 3 years I lived on Vancouver Island I belonged to a Community Kitchen and we cooked meals once a month for the less fortunate.
This was one of our popular soup recipes. We would cook up to 25 - 30 meals in the morning and then we'd all have lunch together...usually soup with crusty bread.
This soup is a favorite of my DH.
It does get thick upon sitting and I just add water when reheating!!!
This is easily doubled , tripled or quadrupled...we did when we were feeding 25 people.
It is delicious!!!
