Tortellini and Spring Veggie Soup

Tortellini and Spring Veggie Soup Recipe - SavvyMom

Busy moms, this dinner recipe is meant just for you.

Here’s a simple dinner recipe the kids are sure to love. I think of this tortellini and spring veggie soup as my go-to, back-pocket meal when I don’t have more than 20 minutes to get a good dinner on the table. I use a store-bought shortcut by picking up a package of fresh tortellini and to it I add quick cooking spring veggies like peas and baby spinach. Chicken stock and lemon juice round out the list of ingredients, and if I’m feeling fancy I cover the whole bowl with a generous sprinkling of grated Parmesan cheese.

Two words come to mind when I serve this for dinner: simple and satisfying.

I hope you give it a try!

    Just tried this last night – it was so easy, and a big hit! There were only two of us, so I just halved the recipe ingredients and it turned out very well.
