Today’s recipe for Chicken Tortellini Soup was one of those grocery store creations that I come up with standing in the aisle.  I was hankering for homemade chicken noodle soup, but I wanted something with a bit more substance to it.  So, while walking through the deli and dairy area, I saw refrigerated cheese tortellini and thought… Aha!  

This was quick and easy to throw together… and to prove to you that we live in the real world… my tortellini fell apart a bit.  So, make sure you read the instructions on the tortellini package!  Serve this chicken tortellini soup with some crusty French bread or garlic bread and enjoy!
