Soups On!

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!
