Every parent knows that it is impossible to make it through the winter without Mr. Common Cold paying a visit to your home. Sometimes Mr. Cold brings with him Mrs. Fever and Aunt Ear Infection, both unwelcome guests, but alas, Mr. Cold rarely travels alone. This meal fits the emergency, it is a soup that is quick, nutritious, warm and bubbly, all the right elements for sick-bed comfort food.
The beauty of this recipe is its flexibility. You can add almost any ingredients you want. For example, sun-dried tomato chicken sausage or regular sliced chicken breasts or even, pork sausage. If you are a vegetarian you can use vegetable broth and omit the chicken altogether. Use fresh fluffy cheese tortellini or frozen ravioli if you prefer.
