& Corn Tortellini Soup Freezer Recipe
1 8oz package fresh cheese tortellini
1 cup turkey, cooked and diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cans low sodium chicken broth (or turkey broth, if available)
1 cup frozen corn
1/4 tsp black ground pepper
2 tbsp green onion
In a large saucepan,
bring 3 cups of water to a boil (you need to measure the water,
since it forms part of the broth!) along with garlic. Add
tortellini and cook according to package instructions (usually
about 10 minutes). Lower temperature to medium-high. Add chicken
or turkey broth, stir. Add corn and stir. Bring up to a boil
again, and boil for 2-3 minutes. Add chicken and cook for
1 more minute, stirring well. Add green onions and pepper,
stir well. Allow to cool to room temperature, then divide
into equal portions in containers. Freeze.
On serving day,
thaw overnight in refrigerator or you can defrost in microwave.
Pour contents of container into saucepan and heat over medium
high until heated through. Serve. Can sprinkle with more fresh
ground pepper or Parmesan cheese when serving.
