It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Winter Zoop

I made Tortellini Soup.. creamy soup. With a bit of spiciness to it.

Carrots - diced
Celery - diced
One small onion- diced
Olive oil
Tortellinis .. I use fresh , with cheese .

In a  deep pot ( I use a Dutch Oven  ) saute the carrots, onion and celery in some olive oil.
When things start getting softer and more tender, add the broth .
Bring the broth to a boil and add the tortellinis, cook until tender.
Turn down the heat and let it cook a while longer, the broth will thicken a little.

I threw in some black pepper at the end, the broth has a tiny bite to it instead of being a bit too creamy and bland from the tortellinis.

This is so easy to make and has such a good taste plus on cold winter nights, it is a comforting supper .. Minette liked it.

I walked into the kitchen and she was on the counter, licking the spoon clean.
Merlin sat on the floor and watched .. not sure if he could see that well but he was a lousy Look-Out .. he never said a word when I walked in and caught her in the act  lol....



  1. I love cheese stuffed tortellinis. They must be really good in a soup. Your soup sounds super delicious. And approved by Minette :-)

  2. That soup sounds lovely!! I am not a big soup fan, but do like a cream soup (versus broth). YUM!

  3. Looks delicious, I will try.
    What kind of broth, chicken ?

  4. Brit, I use Turkey broth or chicken. The vegetable broth is a touch too tasteless for me.
    It really is very good.
