Mmmmm, this question comes at just the right time.
Today it was raining off and on over the already frozen ground that is Idaho in the winter. Freezing rain, y’all.
But you know what’s best during freezing rain? Soup.
Today’s prompt asks, “What is your favorite food?”
And today I’ll tell you my favorite food is the meal I make for my husband and I while we curl up on the couch and watch A Young Doctor’s Notebook and wait out this dreadful weather.
The only thing on tonight’s menu was soup, but it was a delicious one.
Tomato Basil Soup with Three Cheese Tortellini.
I forgot to take a picture of it before my husband so kindly put it all away for our lunches tomorrow. But the original recipe I started using is from Rachel Schultz on A Household Almanac.
I, of course, have modified it. Not to make it any better, but to satisfy my laziness. I didn’t measure anything. I made a giant pot of this to make sure we’d have lots of leftovers.
Here’s how I did it:
2 packages of Bertolli Tortellini cooked al dente.
2 16oz cans of tomato sauce
About 4 cups of vegetable broth
Heavy Cream – a splash? Just enough to make it the color I wanted.
A BUNCH of pepper and Basil
Approximately 1 TSP of Garlic Salt
Hubby approved and so did my tummy. I’m in love with this meal almost as I am in love with him ❤
