1/2 cup frozen corn

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (or more to taste)

2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

Salt and pepper to taste

Jaclyn says, “This seriously takes about 10 minutes to make (for your family; making it at school takes longer simply because of the volume).”

*Jaclyn favors the convenient, tasty Savory Choice liquid broth concentrate, which comes in a box containing little packets to which you add hot water. It is available at Whole Foods and other grocery stores.

**If using fresh/uncooked OR dried/uncooked tortellini, cook it in a separate pot of gently boiling water until done, and then add the cooked tortellini to hot soup. If using frozen pre-cooked tortellini, heat broth to a gentle boil, then add frozen tortellini. It will thaw and heat in about 3 minutes.


Tortellini Soup


Jaclyn Gelb of Malibu makes this soup for children at her daughter's school. On soup day, the children race to the cafeteria and gobble this down.

Like many good cooks, Jaclyn eyeballs some of the amounts. For a casual soup like this, you can’t go wrong estimating – a handful of frozen peas, a handful of frozen corn, a big pinch of Parmesan…you get the idea.

You can easily make this vegetarian by using vegetable broth.
