To Make Soup

 

     Hi there! Now that it's basically fall, all I can think about are all of the fun things that come along with fall. The trees, special coffees, pumpkin everything, and you guessed it - soup. I didn't eat soup once this summer, but the second I started planning September, I knew I had to make a soup. I've made a couple from Kristen's cookbook, Myriad, and this one was next on the list. I made it as healthy as possible, with fresh veggies that Brett grew and whole wheat tortellini's instead of the usual ones. The result was amazing, and I devoured it for lunch all week. Get the recipe below, and be sure to checkout Kristen's site for even more delicious recipes!
