LEMON CHICKEN TORTELLINI SOUP
It’s finally cool enough to start serving those hearty and delicious soups again! There are so many recipes I’ve been wanting to try and I am so happy to cook a simple, yet satisfying dinner for my little family!
This is a recipe I derived from Rachel Ray. I changed a few things to kind of make it my own and I think it turned out great! It’s a gorgeous, rustic looking dish.
- Chicken Sausage ( I used the gouda chicken sausage from Costco, very tasty)
- Salt and pepper
- 4 cups chicken broth
- 2 cups water
- 1- 9 ounce bag tortellini pasta
- 2 cups shredded kale
- 1 1/2 cups frozen peas
- Grated peel and juice of 1 lemon
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
- 2-3 sprigs of chopped scallions
Add the chicken broth and water to dutch oven or pot and bring to a simmer. Add the tortellini and cook according to the package directions. Cook on low and stir in the chicken sausage, the kale, peas, scallions, lemon peel, lemon juice and mint. Season with salt and pepper. Let it cook on low until the kale has softened.
I can’t say I’ve ever had a soup quite like this before, but there is something very fresh about it. The mint seems to bring the whole thing to life! Serve with freshly warmed french bread and enjoy! This will be sure to make you feel cozy and warm!
