This meal is so fast to get on the table. The soup cooks up very quickly and Sister Schubert’s Mini Baguettes are not only the prefect accompaniment, they are also quick to the table.
Do you like dipping bread in your soup? I do and these were perfect for doing that. The outside of the baguette is crunchy, making them great for dipping. The inside is soft and warm, which gives them a homemade taste. I also really appreciate that they are individual servings, versus a whole loaf that needs to be cut. When you need to get dinner to the table fast, every little time-saving step helps!
The other thing I love about this whole meal is that it requires no advanced planning. It’s basically a pantry/freezer meal. All the ingredients can be kept on hand and pulled out when you need them. The Mini Baguettes warm in the oven while the soup comes together. I love meals like this!
In the photo, you’ll see beef broth, but I ended up using chicken broth. Either would work fine.
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed
- 2 Tbs. olive oil
- 2 boxes or 4 cans chicken or beef broth
- 20-25 fully cooked, frozen meatballs, thawed
- 19 oz frozen tortellini
- 15 oz can diced tomatoes
- 15 oz can tomato sauce
- 1/2 tsp. basil
- 1/2 tsp. oregano
- salt and pepper to taste
- In a soup pot, cook onion and garlic in olive oil till onion is soft.
- Add broth and bring to boil.
- Add remaining ingredients and boil, till tortellini is cooked.
How do you eat your soup? Do you like to dip bread in it? Do you like to crush crackers in soup? Or are you a purist, keeping the bread/crackers on the side?
