Chicken Cheese Tortellini Soup

The temperatures are dropping and that means soup season is here.  I wanted to try something new and this is what I created with the ingredients that I had on hand.



Chicken Cheese Tortellini Soup

1 1/2 pounds chicken breasts, cubed and cooked
8 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup carrots, peeled, sliced
1/2 cup peas
1 pound cheese tortellini
1/2 tsp sage
1/2 tsp thyme, crushed
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Braise chicken until no longer pink.  Add into chicken broth along with vegetables and spices.  Cook over medium heat until vegetables have softened.  Add in cheese tortellini and cook for another 10 minutes
