Unusual chilly day in Pittsburgh today. I am glad for the break from the 90’s although no pool today.
Decided to make some soup and was craving good old fashioned chicken soup. I mixed it up and instead of noodles decided to use cheese tortellini. The result was a delicious stomach and soul warming soup. Served along side some nice crusty french bread and a quick satisfying Saturday supper!
I started by cutting some chicken tenderloins into bite sized pieces and cooked in a little olive oil until browned. Then added a sliced carrot and two stalks of chopped celery. Sauteed until the veggies were tender and then added some chicken broth. I keep homemade chicken broth in the freezer so just added to the pot and brought it to a simmer. Then added frozen cheese tortellini and then bring back to a slow simmer. Sprinkle in some herbs and dinner is served! Click the picture for a close up.
