Tortellini Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
I made this last night and it was WONDERFUL. However, I made a few alterations. Instead of Italian sausage, I used 4 links of HOT Jennie-O Turkey Italian Sausage (prepared the same way) and used 4 cups of Swanson Low Sodium Chicken Broth, with a whole cup of water, and I did not use wine. I found Italian Style Stewed Tomatoes that were wonderful, and I used about a half a cup mixed green, red, and yellow peppers that I purchased pre-cut at the grocery. For the Tortellini I used a spinach with cheese kind that was fresh (not frozen or dried). This was so easy to make and it made a TON! Will make again!

Strawberry Pie II

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2014
If you use FRESH FROM THE GARDEN STRAWBERRIES this will be a SOUPY MESS. That being said, you can turn this into cobbler very easily and it really is delicious. I used garden fresh strawberries and mashed about 3/4ths of them using the remaining 1/4th to line the bottom of the crust. Minutes after they begin to cook, you will realize how much water there will be. I only mixed 1/2 a cup of water with 3 tbsp of cornstarch and only used 3/4 a cup of sugar plus a heaping tablespoon of cinnamon - still too runny. This is apparently a big complaint with this recipe if you are using "real strawberries". Once I realized how soupy it was, I just made a basic cinnamon/sugar/flour/butter cobbler topping and put it on top. It was very good, just nothing like a set-pie consistency.
