Tortellini Vegetable Soup

The weather is finally cooler here in Utah. We had a good rainstorm over the weekend that brought cooler temperatures and it looks like they are here to stay. I am not a fan of the cold, but I don’t mind the fall’s chilly, brisk air. I love wearing jeans, sweatshirts/sweaters, and wrapping up in blankets.

I also like making foods that warm the soul and this soup certainly does that. I just made this recipe up on the spot. I used the veggies we had at home, added in some broth, canned tomatoes, fresh rosemary, and cheese tortellini. It turned out really great. It is Josh’s new favorite! He ate it all and is begging for more:)
