MainRecipesSoup | Tortellini Vegetable Soup

   Tortellini Vegetable Soup submitted by Belen Johnson
This soup is a fun take on the classic vegetable soup. It is great for toddlers because the tortellini is a perfect shape for their little fingers to pick up as you feed them the vegetable soup. Serve with warm, fresh crusty bread and it is a great one-dish dinner for mom and dad!

1) Heat the olive oil in a medium soup pot or large saucepan. Add the onion, zucchini, and carrot. Saute over moderate heat for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring often, until the onion is soft and translucent.

2) Add the stock, basil, bay leaf, tomatoes, and salt to the pot. Increase the heat and bring the mixture to a low boil. Add the tortellini and bring the soup back to a low boil. Cook it for 2 minutes, then reduce the heat and let it simmer for 5 to 6 minutes longer. Gently stir in the parsley and pepper during the last minute or so. Makes about 5 servings.
