Tortellini Chicken Soup - Recipe

I have been on a big soup kick lately for lunches.
It is quick, healthy and fills you up.
Now, I have also had some dried cheese tortellini calling my name but did not know what to do with it until late this week.
Make some yummy soup with what I have in the house and that is what I did today.
This is a recipe that I whipped up just using what I had on hand.
You can omit the Cream of Chicken soup if you would want a clear broth soup.
I have to admit that it is quite tasty.
Hope you enjoy!!
