Turn a pasta dish into a great chicken stock soup.
Tortellini alone is great as a pasta but it can also be an awesome ingredient for a warm soup. This is especially true if you have chicken stock stored in your pantry or cupboard.
I personally love having soup for a meal or a quick snack. And I love having it on a cold day or if I just want something warm for my tummy. This is one of the many things my hubby and I both completely agree with.
To make preparing easier, you can actually use frozen tortellini for this dish. You can even add other veggies to make it healthier.
