Tortellini Soup

From: Rochelle

This was one of my FAVORITE soups growing up. . . which actually surprises me now because it is loaded with veggies! It is a broth base, loaded with lots of yummy vegetables, is flavorful, and my favorite. . . has tortellini in it! This is a great winter-time soup that is tasty and will also help with those new year's resolutions!
