Rich and fast Tortellini Soup
A favorite weeknight soup made in 50 minutes. It’ s therefore stinking easy too. Loaded with store bought tortellini, just add chicken and kale.
How to Make It
Remove the skin from the chicken and place the pieces in a large saucepan. Add the broth and 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer gently until the chicken is cooked through, about 35 minutes. Skim any foam that rises to the surface. Transfer the chicken to a plate; let cool. Shred the meat; discard the bones.
In the butter saute the onion, garlic, carrots and celery. Add the strained broth and return it to the saucepan. Bring to a boil. Add the kale, tortellini, salt, and pepper. Simmer according to the tortellini’s package directions.
When the tortellini is done, add the chicken and heat for 3 minutes. Ladle the soup into bowls and sprinkle with the Parmesan.
