Chicken Tortellinni Soup


This soup is very simple, healthy, and very easy to prepare.
But most of all it is very good!
The tortellini noodles make this soup.
You can use leftover chicken or Rotisserie Chicken in this recipe with great results.
My kids loved this soup and ate their whole bowl with out me pestering and saying, "eat you dinner!"
