Soup's On!

 I couldn't let my friend and fellow blogger, The Food Maven's Soup Week get away without one more quick and delicious recipe that is easy to modify in several different ways.  Here is the basic recipe from my local paper. Date: Valentine's Day 2001

You can see how much mileage this recipe has gotten.

Yes, that's right. I'm too lazy to rewrite this recipe for you.

Besides, haven't we been over how much I love my scanner?



Sometimes I replace the diced tomatoes with fire roasted ones which gives it a completely different flavor. 



Now I know what you are thinking (that you aren't married to Popeye and your kids are not going to eat this) but make them try it once. After that I'm going to offer you a solution. 'Cause I'm all helpful like that.


The recipe calls for portobello  mushroom stuffed tortellini but I've used a variety including chicken and prosciutto or cheese, which these are. 



 Tortellini happily swimming in chicken stock (I made my own) and the other ingredients.




Forget Nazi, people are going to think you are a soup goddess.


          Ladling it up!  Tell me this doesn't look delicious...

                                 You know it does.


So you tried it the first time according to the recipe and your crew nearly mutinied. I'd say make'em walk the plank but you could just leave the spinach out. YOU can still have  it with the spinach. I add the green stuff to mine after I put in the bowl and top with parmesan cheese.


 This is another soup perfect for taking care of a family that may be feeling a bit under the weather. The chicken stock, garlic, egg, and spinach are bound to cure whatever ails you and the tortellini will make even soup hating men believe that yes, Virginia...soup is a meal!
