It may be hot outside but I still enjoy a warm bowl of soup to satisfy my hunger. Lots of vegetables and a tasty broth is what you will find in my Chicken Tortellini Soup. If you are using a pre-cooked chicken your local grocery, this soup can take less than 30 minutes to put on table. Give this a try and let me know your thoughts in the comment section at the bottom. I think you will find it very satisfying.
