Now that winter is upon us, I find that people are really starting to dig out their recipe books and are making soups and stews for meals.
After last weekend`s snow storm in my area, with temperatures that started to dip quickly, I decided to make 2 different soups. The most recent one was Tomato Tortellini Soup.
Here`s my quick and easy (not to mention frugal) recipe:
1 16oz can of tomato sauce (I used mushroom)
2 tomato sauce cans of water
1 cup milk (or cream if you wish)
3 Tbsp chicken bouillon powder
1/4 Tsp salt
1/8 Tsp ground black pepper
A dash of white pepper
1 Tbsp garlic powder
1 Tsp Oregano
1 small pkg of frozen tortellini, cheese or beef filled (I used cheese filled)
2 cups frozen mixed vegetables
In a large pot add tomato sauce, milk, water, and seasonings. Whisk together.
Add frozen tortellini and frozen mixed vegetables to the pot.
Bring to a boil over medium-high heat for 15-20 minutes, or until tortellini is no longer frozen, stirring occasionally.
Reduce heat, and simmer for another 10 minutes.
Serve & Enjoy!
