Time to pull the soup ladle out again. The kids actually saw their breath this morning as they walked to school. I actually am not a big soup eater so this means that the following recipe is really worth trying. The recipe was passed on to me by a friend but can't you claim a recipe after you have made it several times and altered it a bit?
Chicken Tortellini Soup
Saute: 1/4 c. onion and 1/2 c. celery in 2 T. water (I actually totally skipped this step)
Stir in: 2 c. milk
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can chicken broth or 2 c. chicken broth
4 boneless chicken breasts, cooked and cut up
1/4 tsp. basil
1/8 tsp. pepper
garlic salt to taste
Heat above and add one package of frozen tortellini (or ravioli noodles are good too) and cook according to the package.
Optional additions: 1 shredded carrot, or steamed broccoli, spinach, or steamed zucchini, or corn
