Soup Comfort

My name is Tami and ...I am a "Soupaholic"! haha 
It's true...I love soup, and it can be any kind, it's not like wine where you have to be somewhat particular (pay no attention to my tagline). I can open a can, mix up a ramen, or savor the broth that comes with my chinese dinner. So... that being said, I look for quick easy soup ideas that will put something savory, hot, and comforting on the table in minutes if you will, as I'm a "WW". Oh? you don't know what that means? It stands for "Working Wife". Yep, I work full time, on my feet 40 hours a week in heels. One night I craved, yes, craved shrimp and tortellini, in a soup, and searched online and found a recipe quick and easy from the fabulous people at Buitoni. I sort of "perfected" their recipe and came up with will make a good size pot to feed your family be it 4 or 10. 

2 cups of your favorite marinara jar sauce ( I use Prego traditional)
1 cup of white wine (be it boxed, bottled just something you fancy)
2 32 oz containers of Chicken Broth ( I use organic, low sodium)
1 small bag or half large bag of frozen petite green peas
1/2 to 1 pound of frozen shrimp (tails off peeled)
1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
1 12-16 oz  cheese tortellini pasta 

Pour chicken broth, wine, and sauce into a pot, bring to a boil
add shrimp, bring back to a boil
add cayenne
add peas bring back to a boil
add tortellini bring to a boil again, and serve
Try very hard not to eat 3 bowls, go on...I dare ya ;)

  4. Hi Tami, Me too, I love soup, a perfect fall meal!!
    Target had those little votive cups not in with the christmas, but on that aisle at the far end of the main front isle where they sell seasonal decor, they were going fast, and I wish I had picked up a few more that I did:-)))
    Have a great weekend!
