Chicken Tortellini Soup

I love homemade chicken noodle soup but have never gotten quite right when making it myself. I decided to give it a try again but to try a few new things this time.
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, cut into chunks
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • 3 carrots, washed and chopped (don't peel it)
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 small summer squash or zucchini
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil (or 2 tablespoons fresh chopped basil)
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley (or 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano (or 1 tablespoons fresh chopped oregano)
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 9 oz. Buitoni Tortellini
  1. In a stock pot or large saucepan, heat oil in saucepan, then add the onion, carrots, celery, peppers, and garlic. Sauté for 8-10 minutes.
  2. Add seasons, spices, and broth. Bring to a boil then lower the heat to a simmer. Add summer squash/zucchini and tortellini. Cover and simmer 10 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and enjoy.
