Comforting Tortellini soup

Instead of making my own pasta or even think of making it, I quickly ran to the super market and got a packet of frozen tortellini. A quick soup with dash of all veggies in my fridge took care of the dinner time! I have never tried a soupy tortellini. I always saute it with veggies or eat it with arabiatta sauce. If you are tired and want to spend minimum time in your kitchen with less pressure on "after-cooking" clean up then it's a perfect one-pot recipe (should I say one-pan??)- very comforting with nice flavors and a healthy way to finish your day. Read on....


1 big cup mixed assortment of veggies (I used mushrooms, beans, shallots, peas, carrots, zucchini)
1 bay leaf (how cannot I use this when I have a food blog titled Flavors??)
5-6 cups of Vegetable broth
1 onion (medium sized) chopped
salt according to taste
1/2 cup crushed canned tomatoes
Frozen tortellini (used spinach and ricotta filled tortellini)
1 tsp dried basil
fresh parsley for garnishing
black pepper to taste
Olive oil to cook
3-4 crushed garlic cloves (I can't cook without my star ingredient)


Heat olive oil in a pot/pan. Saute onions, garlic and other veggies over medium flame (for about 8 min). Add broth, bay leaf, basil, tomatoes and salt to the pot. Bring the soup to a boil over high flame. Mix the tortellini and cook on a low flame for 5-6 minutes. Allow it to simmer well before adding pepper. Toss in the parsley for garnishing. Enjoy!

  13. Mmm, I like it! This might be a dumb question but, do you just get it from a regular grocery store? I'm not very versed in the realm of frozen pastas. If the weather gets colder here in So Cal, I'd like to make some of this!

  14. @Hester - you should get it from regular grocery store! Try the frozen food section- it's such a comforting soup to make. Hope you find and make it...
