This morning I woke up and loved the way the air outside felt. It was cool, and crisp… perfect soup making weather. My parents had been talking about this soup they had made… so I decided to make my own version. I love soup… and this Tortellini Vegetable Soup is perfect on a cool day with a flakey piece of bread.
