Dear Creatives, Every now & then you come across a simple recipe that is not only good along with quick & so easy you need to scream it from the roof tops! This recipe Tortellini Soup is one of them. I happen to be trying a few new recipes this week & since it is raining again a soup recipe was a great choice.

No I can’t take all the credit on this one! I a few adaptations to an Everyday Food recipe which is pretty simple. Let me tell you if you are looking for a recipe to feed the family or yourself quick or need a rainy day comfort soup add this one to your list of favorites, because I have a feeling that is just what you’ll do! Serve alone or with a tossed green salad!

Not only that but, you’ll have more creative time! For me that is a plus! Now these images are from left overs, the first day I served this there was plenty of broth! Yes, I splurged with a little extra topping of grated Parmesan cheese.

We are lemon fans in our house so if it didn’t freeze here I would have a lemon tree in my backyard & be sharing endless lemon recipes. Every time I share one just remember that little known fact! But, if you have read my blog here for some time you could of figured that out by recipes like lemon tarts, lemon souffle hand scrub….& more coming with lemon.


These happen to be cheese tortellini, but you can use any kind of  tortellini. I found a similar recipe & they adapted it with 1tb. of sage. I might give this a try sometime as in our herb garden we have two sage plants that are doing extremely well! Look at all the yummy spinach, sweet peas & garbanzo beans (chickpeas). If you don’t have lemons, lemon pepper could do the trick. I can also see adding onions, garlic & red peppers to this recipe.


Now, this soup is just a faded memory, but warms my heart when I think of it! I did try to find the recipe online but, only came up with these from Martha Stewart:
