Tasty Delights--Tortellini and White Bean Soup

Tasty Delights and Dazzling Disasters is all about playing in the kitchen and having some fun.

I'll share my delights or my disasters. Yall feel free to join in and create your own posts, share your favorite recipes, what have you. 

If yall are having weather like us it's...frigid cold. 
And what's better when it's make you want to flail cold?

Pretty simple ingredients. I oped for semi-homemade and bought my tortellini but if you're feeling adventurous you can make those on your own. But these...worked nicely.

First give your tomatoes, celery and oregano a little cooking.

Then add in the garlic and cook a little more.

Then bring to a boil and drop in pasta and beans.

Cook until pasta is tender and soup completely warm.

Okay. So this was really good. And so simple and easy. 

I usually like my broth a little thicker but it actually worked how it was. Maybe one less cup veggie broth but really I enjoyed it how it was. It was filling and perfect for the cold weather we've been having.

Do you have a favorite bean and pasta dish?
How do you like your soups?
