    Mirj's Note:

    I first found this in Fine Cooking Magazine and adapted it for my family. It's one of the few times I will be ready-made tortellini.

      Wow, I wish I knew what I did wrong. Apparently it was something! This came out as an oddball clutch of ingredients that didn't quite come together. My apologies for being negative.

      This was good. The only change I made was to add shredded chicken breast I had seasoned with garlic and lemon pepper to make this more of a main course. Thanks, Mirj.

      This was a quick and extremely tasty soup to prepare and eat! The only changes I made were, substituting olive oil for the butter; substituting Dreamfields penne pasta for the tortellini; adding some red pepper to give it a little more zest and instead of the fresh basil, which I did not have on hand, I added a teaspoon of prepared pesto. Great soup!
