Tomato Tortellini Soup


It's always fun to try out a new recipe, and it is most fun to try one out that is a "keeper" - one that will stay with my growing collection of recipes! This is one that I tried out last week for lunch on New Year's Day, and one that I will be keeping with my favorites!

Soup is such a comfort food, and it was a good choice for the restful, relaxing first day of 2015. Easy to make, and very delicious! I had to hunt a bit for the sun-dried tomatoes, as I had never purchased those before. Always fun to try new things in the kitchen ...
