Recipe for Today ~ Easy, Inexpensive Chicken Tortellini Soup

Chicken Broth (8 cups)
Black Pepper, Ground
Cheese Tortellini (1 package)
2-3 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1 Carrot
1 Celery Stalk

Slice thin carrot and celery stalk. Coat bottom of large pot with olive oil. Add carrots and celery slices to pot, sautee over a medium heat for 10 minutes.

Reduce heat. Pour chicken broth into the pot, cover pot, increase heat to high and bring to a boil. When liquid reaches boiling point, stir and reduce heat to medium. Simmer broth for 5 minutes over medium heat.

Add ground pepper to broth (to taste.) Add tortellini to broth and continue simmering over medium heat until tortellini is fully cooked (al dente.)

Remove soup from stove. Allow to cool for 5-10 minutes. Serve and enjoy!

Note: This basic mixture may be modified and added to easily. Add mushrooms or any number of vegtables and spices to taste. It's a great way to use left-over chicken too. Just chop left-over chicken into small pieces, adding them in at the same time the tortellini is added.
