My friend Carla is ALWAYS cooking something good in the kitchen! She loves to cook for her family and friends. She is a hardworking mommy and when I asked her for one of her go-to week night favorites she gave me this tortellini soup recipe. I'm going to make this over the weekend and maybe add some diced chicken to it....yummy! She made it for her family last night :)
