Tortellini Soup

 Tortellini Soup

It has been another snowy day stuck at home. It was nearing dinner time when the question started to rise, "Hannah, what is for dinner???" So into the refrigerator I went, and there I found some very useful ingredients to make a pot of soup on this cold winter day!

1 package of Olivieri Rainbow Tortellini
3 celery stalks chopped
1 white onion sliced
1 large carrot chopped
36 oz canned chopped tomatoes
36 oz of water (I just use the tomato jar/cans as my measuring cup)
1 can chicken stock
1 can tomato paste
4 large cloves of garlic
1 heaping spoonful of dried basil
3 dashes of salt
5 cranks (grinds) of pepper
1 heaping spoonful of dried oregano 
4 dashes of garlic powder
4 tbs parsly 

1. Put all of the ingredients in a large pot and bring to a boil (stirring occasionally.) 
2. When it comes to a boil, turn to low and put a lid on it.
3. Let simmer for 20-30 minutes, or the longest amount of time that your stomach will allow you to wait.
4. Serve and enjoy!
For a bit of extra goodness, I sprinkle mine with parmesan cheese!
