-Add 1 cup of sliced Italian sausage. Cook the sausage separately and add it in the soup when you add the tortellini.
-To make chicken tomato tortellini soup, add in 1 cup of cooked chicken cubes. Again, you will add the cooked chicken when you add the tortellini.
-For spinach tomato tortellini soup, add 1 cup of chopped spinach in the last 5-7 minutes of cooking.
-Add 3/4 cup chopped sun dried tomatoes in the soup.
-You can also mix in 1 cup of your favorite frozen vegetables to make a tasty vegetable tomato tortellini soup.
Tips and Techniques
-You can use whatever broth you like. Both, chicken and vegetable taste really good.
-Make sure to use low sodium broth so that the soup doesn’t become too salty.
-Replace some heavy cream with Greek yogurt or milk and use low fat or fat free cheeses to make this soup a little healthier.
-If you are adding anything to the soup not listed in the recipe below (i.e. sausage, meatballs, spinach or other vegetables), make sure you cut and cook them properly separately and then add them into the soup as one of the last steps when you add the tortellini.
-When you eat leftovers the next day, you may notice that the soup has gotten thicker because a lot of the broth would have been absorbed by the tortellini. Just add a little more broth or water, while reheating to get the consistency you like.
-The amount of herbs in this recipe can be adjusted, based on your preference.
