Hostess for this week: Bri of Yoshimi vs. motherhood at http://yoshimivsmotherhood.blogspot.com/
Now it is December and that means decorating the house for Christmas. I have the tree up so that is a big start, right?
On to the soup. That is why you are here. This was a spinach tortellini soup that contained some celery, carrots, and onions. It really was just a good vegetable soup with a tomato base. I think I went a bit overboard with the red pepper flakes though because we found it to be quite spicey. I also think it would have been good to add some chicken to it, but I made it like Ellie's recipe this time. Love tortellini. I just used regular ones, however, instead of the spinach ones. It was a quick and easy soup to make on a weeknight and tonight was about as cold a night as we have had here in Alabama so it was the perfect night to enjoy a good, hot soup! We served it with a hunk of french bread.
