Tortellini Vegetable Soup

Ingredients

  • 2 TBS olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 small zucchini, diced
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled and diced
  • 5 ½ cups chicken stock
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 large can crushed tomatoes
  • 8 to 9 oz fresh or frozen tortellini (meat or cheese filled)
  • 2 to 3 TBS chopped fresh parsley
  • Black pepper, to taste (I use 1 tsp and add it in with the other spices)

Recipe

  • Heat the olive oil in a medium soup pot or large saucepan.  Add the onion, zucchini and carrot.  Saute over medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring often, until the onion is soft and translucent.
  • Add the stock, basil, bay leaf, tomatoes and salt to the pot.  Increase the heat and bring the mixture to a low boil.  Add the tortellini and bring the soup back to a low boil.  Cook it for 2 minutes, then reduce the heat and let it simmer for 5 to 6 minutes longer.  Gently stir in the parsley and pepper during the last minute or so.

Yields about 6 servings
