Everyone's Favorite Chicken Tortellini Soup

The current temperature here in Northern Illinois is -10, but the wind chill makes it feel like -25.  On a day like today, nothing sounds better than a big bowl of homemade soup.  I found a great Chicken Tortellini Soup recipe that is so delicious and is ready in only 20 minutes.  My family loved it!  

Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat.  Add carrots, celery and onion. Saute 3-4 , minutes and add garlic.  Saute about a minute more.  

At this point my kids start to come in the kitchen and ask whats for dinner as they smell everything sauting...

Now pour in the chicken broth, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper to taste.  Bring everything to a boil over medium-heat then cover and boil for 5 minutes.  

Add your tortellini and place a tied bunch of parsley into the broth.  Cover and boil for 6-8 minutes.  Boil slightly less than the time listed on the package for tortellini. Using tongs, remove the bunch of parsley.   Add the chicken and cook until heated through, this should only take about a minute.  

Serve warm and top with fresh chopped parsley leaves.  I served this with fresh, warm Rosemary Olive Oil bread.  This recipe has now been added to the family favorites.  Enjoy and stay warm!

It all started with a desk!  I found an old desk at an estate sale that I thought would be fun to paint for my daughter's room.  I purchased some fun chevron fabric to cover the chair and went out to
