Recipe: Vegetable Tortellini Soup

This soup is basically a minestrone soup where there are no beans and the plain pasta has been replaced by tortellini. In other words it’s delicious and just as simple to make as a vegetable soup. The tortellini makes the soup quite a substantial meal to eat but if you feel the need to add beans, I don’t think they would make the dish worse.
