Beef Tortellini Soup
This Beef Tortellini Soup is the one. Like I mean THE ONE. Even my guy who is not a huge soup fan (I know, I should leave him, but he gives good... foot massages. Yeah, that’s what he gives) 😇
Anyhoo! Considering we are basically living in a deep freeze this winter, I’ve been living on hot soups and stews. If my outside can’t be warm, at least my insides can be!
