Well folks, it’s raining hard here today, AND it’s Friday. That means you should go ahead and treat yourself by making a pot of tortellini soup. This is a no fuss, can’t go wrong, will fill you up type of soup. We are soup eaters at my house, and as soup eaters this may just be our favorite. It’s really got everything you could ever want, cheese, veggies, carbs. Speaking of carbs, how great would it be to have a bowl of this with a big piece of crusty bread for dipping?
