    Loooooved this soup – it was surprisingly “light” and hearty at the same time. We are a total soup family and this is going to be added to the normal rotation, my husband can’t stop raving about it!… we used three cheese tortellini. YUM!

    I make this soup at least twice a month. We love it!! I use oat milk as the creamer since that is usually what I have on hand. I also use a mild Italian sausage to cut down on spice level. Great way to get daily greens in this delicious soup!!
