Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini
This was so good! I really wasn't expecting a lot from it because I rarely cook tortellini and I used canned peeled tomatoes. (Since they're not in season I didn't worry about sacrificing the fresh for canned. I also didn't add the zucchini.) I purchased ground sausage instead of having to remove the casings, I used dried herbs for the fresh... Anything to make this easier. Like I said, I wasn't expecting a lot. But Wow! What a surprise. Everyone loved it and went back for seconds. Definitely a do over. I served it with Italian bread. I may consider adding spinach next time but that's just a thought. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Italian Chicken with Garlic and Lemon
The only changes I made to this (out of necessity) were substituting thighs for breasts, used squeezed lemon with bottled lemon juice and using garlic salt instead of minced garlic. Even with both of these changes, this recipe was a HUGE hit with my family! Will definitely be making it again and will add it to my FAVS folder. (I only used half of the chicken suggested but did not half the sauce which turned out to be a very good idea since my family was sopping it up. Literally....they were scraping it onto their plates with the chicken and potatoes.)
