The crock pot is a magical thing. There is nothing better than coming home after a long day to a homemade meal, hot and ready. In honor of me being sick all of last week and all those other sickies out there that aren’t handling the change of season in tip top shape; I thought I’d share one of my homemade soup recipes.I grew up in a household of lots of cooking and lots of homemade soups. As those of you who have seen my recipes before know… I kind of just wing it. I cook to taste. So I tried to mentally measure out the ingredients below as best as I could for you. The good part about soup is, it’s always trial and error. Add too much seasoning? … Just add more water and vice versa. Enjoy!Chicken and Tortellini Soup-32 oz of Swanson Low Sodium Chicken Broth-32 oz Water-4 teaspoons of Wylers Instant Bouillon - Chicken-2 Frozen Chicken Breasts (about 8oz)-8 oz (bag of) tortellini (I used ricotta and spinach)-8 oz Whole Wheat Cous Cous (or any noodle)-Chopped Celery-Chopped Carrots-Sage - to Taste-Basil - to Taste-Garlic Powder - to Taste-Onion Powder - to Taste-Pepper - to Taste-Parsley - to Taste-Crushed Red Pepper - OptionalPut everything but the tortellini and noodles in the crockpot on high for 5-6 hours. I took out and shredded the chicken after about 3 hours and then put back in to finish cooking. After about 5 hours, I added the cous cous and tortellini. Put the crockpot on low, then let sit for 45 minutes. I taste tested throughout, adding more seasoning or water as needed. Easypeasy and delish!
