Chicken tortellini soup

by Jonah

My friend T once served me some delicious chicken tortellini soup.  I got the recipe from her and modified it heavily.  Here’s my version.  It is so good.  Even Mikey likes it.

 

Chicken tortellini soup

1 lb chicken breasts cubed

1 lb sliced sausage (I like to use Andouille)

3 quarts of chicken broth

2 cans cream of chicken soup

1 cup vermouth

24 oz fresh or frozen tortellini

2 cups sliced carrots

2 bunches chopped green onions

4 teaspoons basil

1 teaspoon oregano

1 small head garlic minced

1 package fresh spinach

2 cups shredded white Cheddar

1 cup cream

pepper to taste

seasoned salt to taste (about 1 tablespoon)

 

Sauté the carrots in a little bit of olive oil. Add garlic and sausage.

Bring to a boil everything except the tortellini, spinach, and Cheddar.  Add the tortellini, the spinach and Cheddar, bring back to a boil, and simmer  10 minutes or until tortellini is done.  Add cream and serve with more grated Cheddar on top.

Fortunately, it’s soup and it doesn’t really matter what you do.
