a new, easy soup

6-8cups ck broth
bag of California blend frozen vegetables
can of Italian diced tomatoes, with juice
bag of cheese tortellini (frozen or fresh- follow the directions for cooking time)

heat the first three ingredients, than add the tortellini to simmering soup 3-4 min. before serving.

the only catch: this soup will stand on it's own, without doctoring with spices, IF you buy quality ingredients. NOT generic. each ingredient needs to be really good (duh), then it is just plain yummy. if the vegetables have been around a while, or are mostly broccoli stalks, or the canned tomatoes are too green or boring, the soup will need some garlic, basil, or a little extra help.
