Tips and FAQ’s
Freeze the soup by letting it cool completely and ladle into freezer safe baggies. Lay flat in the freezer on a baking sheet.
This recipe has not been tested in the slow cooker(so sorry!)
This soup is versatile! Stir in hearty greens like kale or spinach at the end, add in mushrooms or carrots when sautéing the onions, stir in cooked Italian sausage if desired, and even use a different pasta shape if preferred.
If using frozen tortellini, cook them separately according to package directions and then stir into the soup.
When reheating leftovers, you may need to add more broth to thin out the soup.
Can use olive oil in place of butter if preferred.
