"In Italy, this soup is called tortellini en brodo. If you keep your freezer stocked, this soup is a snap to whip up after a long day at the office."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I love this soup! It's super easy to make. I use spinach instead of watercress because it's so hard to find. And I add a lot more liquid.
I followed the basic recipe. Also made a few modifications. I sautéed some red onion with shiitake mushroom with minced garlic A little bit of butter, used fresh spinach and celery. Delicious!!
I made some changes based on what we had on hand and what we liked. I took another suggestion and used spinach instead of watercress and added meatballs. I also added carrots as my little one loves carrots. I did half chicken broth and half beef broth. It was very good and we have made it repeatedly!
For as simple as the ingredients are in this soup, it is really, REALLY good! I do love my cream-based soups, but this was nice and light, and I actually felt good eating it! I did not have watercress on hand, so I used spinach, which worked great in this and only regular chicken broth (no low sodium on hand), but I didn't find it salty at all. I may add some mini meatballs next time, just because I think they would be yummy in this. I doubled the recipe. This is simple, fresh and delicious...a definite keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
