This is a very simple soup to make since you don’t have to make the tortellini. With a saute, then cooking the pasta in the soup broth, it is ready in just about no time at all.

Wonderful as a soup course for any meal in the cooler months, with a few pieces of toasted baguette it can double as a light lunch or meal.

    When tortellini is tender, add the basil pesto and kale, stirring until the kale wilts.

  1. Ooh yum, a new favourite for me, this was dee-licious!!!! I did omit the mushrooms (just not a huge fan) and cooked some finely sliced celery with the onion instead. I think the red wine is the secret ingredient here, just adds that extra I-dont-know-what 🙂 happily piled on the cheese! This is a robust and very very good soup, I helped myself to more than I needed! Thank you Sue, loved this recipe, thanks for sharing!!
