You all know I love cooking from scratch but sometimmes life just gets in the way and this tortellini soup uses one of my favourite freezer/store cupboard fall back products. Store bought tortellini is something I can always lay my hands on, it is a little more interesting than plain old dried pasta and yes even the expensive stuff aint as good as homemade. But you can dress it up real quick and have a fab simple dinner in half an hour with out batting an eyelid.
This is the second tortellini soup I have done this year here on Krumpli, although this one is a little more “homely” than the tomato consomme I did in the summer, that of course does not make it any less tasty.
I like this recipe as it kinda reminds me of summer, using up some of the produce I had great fun preserving over summer, tomatoes always remind me of summer, even on a blustery, grey and wet November day like today. I guess that kinda happens when you spend summer dealing with on occasions over a quarter of a tonne of the bloody things 😮 !
Talking about November, who stole it? Go on own up, last thing I remember was my wifes Birthday, next thing I know I’m cooking tortellini soup and my wife tells me we need to go chocolate shopping to stuff our advent calendar. I don’t even like chocolate really, so chocolate for breakfast, great!
Don’t worry I’m not a complete Christmas grump, just for the first couple of weeks of the advent season, I like Christmas, in fact I love it… Locking myself away with my wife and spoiling ourselves rotten is a real joy, but you know a joy for a week, not the whole bloody month!
