Easier Chicken Noodle SoupRecipe

Jennifer Causey

Using cheese-filled tortellini as the noodle here adds more flavor than plain pasta; a hint of miso further enriches the broth. You can make the soup a couple of days ahead--just leave out the pasta, as it will swell once it goes into the liquid. Reheat the soup until it comes to a simmer. Then add the tortellini, and cook 6 minutes.

Serves 6 (serving size: about 1 1/3 cups)
