Tasty Thursday

It’s baaaack- Tasty Thursday hosted by Southern Fried Mama. I love sharing recipes and reading others so I am really glad she revived this tradition!

Here is my recipe for this week:

Chicken-Tortellini Soup

I found this recipe years ago in a Pillsbury cookbook and it has remained a family favorite. When I made it a few weeks ago I left out the broccoli (I can’t have broccoli while I am on blood thinners) and it was still yummy.

9 oz. frozen broccoli
3 cans (10 1/2 oz) condensed chicken broth
6 1/2 cups water
1 can (10 3/4 oz) cream chicken soup
2 cups cooked chicken, cubed (you can used canned chicken to save $$ but be sure to rinse it well- I prefer boiling a chicken breast or two and cutting that into cubes)
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup sliced carrots
1/2 tsp. dried basil
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 package (7 oz) dry cheese tortellini

1.) Remove broccoli from freezer and let stand at room temperature to thaw. In a large soup pan, mix all remaining ingredients, except for tortellini. Heat to boiling.
2.) Stir in tortellini. Reduce heat, simmer uncovered for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3.) Stir in thawed broccoli, simmer 5-10 minutes longer.

You can serve topped with mozzerella or parmesan cheese. I usually make breadsticks and salad to go along with it. This is also a good soup recipe to use leftover chicken or even turkey with.

    that really sounds good, thanks

  5. My favorite soup and i don’t have a recipe!! thank you…now i do!!!

    • This sounds wourfdenl and I love the idea of the garlic sage butter – very different! My girls would love this because they aren’t always huge fans of red sauce….but love garlic and butter.

    I have a challenge for you. Are you up to it Multitasking Mama?

    I need a yummy recipe that uses canned Mackerel. Why?

    Because this a “Super Beneficial” Food for me and because it is cheap!

    I am asking my husband to work on a recipe this weekend too. I stocked up on cans of Mackerel some weeks back.

    Thank you!
