Now is the time you definitely can’t have too many soup recipes! It’s been soup half the time around here for the last few weeks and I’m sure that’s not about to change, I’ll probably only start making it more often to get through this bitter cold season. Ahhhh to sink my toes into the warm sand on a tropical island somewhere is sounding really nice just about now! But until then I’ll sit back and dream and sip on a warm bowl of this delicious Creamy Chicken, Spinach and Mushroom Tortellini Soup (and I know isn’t that a ridiculously long name that seems so unnecessary? Well each word is must because you need to know how much goodness is packed into this soup).
