Chicken and Cheese Tortellini Soup

Chicken and Cheese Tortellini Soup

Meal type Soup
Misc Freezable, Serve Hot

Ingredients

  • 26oz Chicken Stock
  • 15.5oz Canned diced Tomatoes undrained (This equals to 1 can)
  • 2 cups Water
  • 1lb Chicken Smoked Sausages (This came to 4 sausages for me)
  • 1/2 cup Brussel Sprout Leaves (I used about 5 large sprouts to get this many leaves)
  • 1lb Frozen Cheese Tortellini
  • 1 Parmesan Cheese Rind (optional)
  • 1 pinch Dried Oregano
  • 5 Basil Leaves (cut into ribbons...More for finishing each bowl of soup is optional )
  • 2 Green Onions (The onion for the broth and the Greens for the top of the soup for serving)
  • 1 Garlic Clove Minced
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions

Step 1
Into a large pot, combine the Chicken Stock, Tomatoes and Water. Bring to a simmer
Step 2
To the simmering broth add in the Brussel Sprout Leaves, Parmesan Cheese Rind, Basil, Garlic, Onions and seasonings.
Step 3
Dice up your Smoke Chicken Sausages and add to the soup pot.
Step 4
Let soup simmer for 20 minutes to combine all the flavors. If your Parmesan rind becomes too soft and begins to fall apart, you can remove it from the soup. The Rind really adds a salty buttery flavor to the broth.
Step 5
Add in the frozen Cheese Tortellini. When the pasta is heated through, you can serve your soup
Step 6
For serving, I like to add extra basil ribbons and the greens of the green onion on top of each bowl. I also like to shave the Parmesan and add that to the top of the soup.

About Shannon @VillageGirlBlog

With my Husband, we raise our two sons and a nephew, three dogs, a cat, four chickens and a large garden on my just under an acre lot in a small village in Southeast Michigan. I am passionate about real food, and eating as local as we can without giving up olive oil, coffee, you know the necessities. Herb gardens and backyard chickens, reading, writing, photography are my other passions. I believe that things will work out eventually, the glass is not only half full but it is refillable.
