Basil Tortellini Soup

Basil-Tortellini SOup

A quick and easy, less than 20 minutes to make, soup.  Perfect for a cool Fall day!  It is almost more like a pasta dish with a light broth, when you add all the extra veggies, meat and such.  Sooo tasty!!  We like ours with a nice warm crusty bread.

Serves 4-6 for about $1.50/serving

INGREDIENTS:

4 cups chicken broth – ($0.96)

1 pkg. uncooked, cheese tortellini – ($2.98)

1 Kielbasa sausage, sliced in coins – ($2.48)

1 (15 oz) can cannelloni beans, drained – ($0.68)

1 cup chopped tomato, or 1 can diced tomatoes – ($0.98)

Optional: diced zucchini, sliced carrots, kale…anything you like in your soup!  If you add carrots, you may want to put them in the broth when you are heating it to a boil, and slice them thin in order for them to cook through.

Optional: Spinach flakes…I put them in almost everything!

1/2 cup fresh basil, shredded – ($0.46)

1/4 tsp. salt

1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1/2 tsp. fresh ground black pepper

DIRECTIONS:
