Divine! Sublime!! LOVED this soup!!! No changes needed though perhaps a suggestion? Use 6 cups of beef broth versus 5 and add only as much tortellini as you plan on eating at each serving. The soup literally sopes up the broth, so if you have leftovers (which are even BETTER the next day) you have no broth as the tortellini has absorbed it! Thanks to Mary P - my hat's off to you!!!!

WOW! Delicious! Everyone LOVED this soup and went back for seconds. I served it with the foccacia bread recipe from this site, YUM! Only thing I changed was used broth instead of water and added 1 cup of spinach. To make it more practical I just used 3 cans beef broth which is a little over 5 cups. 2 medium sized carrots equals 1 cup and 1 medium sized zucchini equals 1.5 cups. I used petite cut diced canned tomatoes, drained - about a can and a half was perfect! DO NOT add any salt to this soup - I used low-sodium broth and it was a tad too salty for me. Thank you for this great recipe!

This is one of the best soups I have ever made! Quick tip-to peel your tomatoes slice a criss-cross on the top of the tomato and drop it into boiling water for just a few seconds, drain them and put them immediately in an ice bath. The skins will come right off, and then you can cut them in half and squeeze the seeds out. This is a must make!
