This recipe is really easy and tastes great. Instead of tortellini I used Chicken/herb ravioli that I had in my freezer. The spices give it a little kick too. A keeper!

This was OK, but it tasted to me like what it was - a bunch of different things dumped in a pot. The flavors didn't blend enough.

This Happy Soup made my all my picky eaters happy! I was looking for a tortellini soup recipe that didn't have tomatoes or mushrooms per my picky eaters. This one was perfect. I didn't have kidney beans so I used red beans. The red pepper flakes gave it a kick. Loved it.

My husband and I love, loved, loved this soup. I changed it up a bit, just because of personal preferences. I used a combo of Navy and Pinto beans instead of kidney, I added a touch of potato flakes to thicken the broth a bit, and added shredded chicken breast for added protein. It was great. Thank you so much for this recipe it is a definite keeper.

This was such a quick and easy recipe to make! Especially with a toddler and infant underfoot! I too had all the ingredients on hand and we all enjoyed it with warm biscuits :)

Very good! I used one can of black beans and one can of kidney beans and frozen mini ravioli instead of tortellini. Result was very good! Also, be careful not to cook the beans to long or it will make the broth a brown/grey color...not very eye appealing but it doesn't change the taste! I

This a very lovely soup. I always favor soups with pure, light flavor, especially when you have a sick hubby to take care of! The name of this recipe says it all.

I made this as written and it turned out very bland, and very low on broth as well; quite unsouplike. Added a couple broth cans full of water, more basil, thyme, some Old Bay, salt, pepper, oregano, a generous pinch of rosemary, and couple cloves of garlic. Something was still lacking, the answer ended up being a chicken flavoring packet from a ramen-type soup. I would think bouillon cubes would work as well. Much better with the additions, but still disappointing.
