Turkey Tortellini Soup

Tuesday, December 28th, 2010

Use convenient frozen tortellini and quick-cooking boneless turkey chunks (or leftover turkey). Try serving with grissini bread sticks and Parmesan cheese, or add 1 cup of canned pumpkin puree to the mixture at the end and heat through for a creamier texture.
