I'm amazed at how superior your vanilla is!

I opened the bottle of your vanilla extract last weekend to bake some cookies and the difference in taste is extraordinary." – Judy

Quick and Easy Tortellini or Ravioli Soup

It’s freezing outside, you’re exhausted, and you want something better than a can of soup for dinner. Here’s an easy solution. It requires some shopping in advance, so get the basic ingredients and have them on hand. You’ll be grateful you did.

You can use tortellini or ravioli or any other pasta you’d like. The advantage of tortellini and ravioli is you can buy them stuffed with butternut squash, spinach, or even meat or cheese if you prefer. You cook the pasta in chicken or vegetable broth, throw in some frozen vegetables (your choice) and part of a package of fresh baby spinach or sliced chard or kale, and in 10 minutes the soup is ready. The basic recipe feeds 2 to 4. If you’re cooking for a family, use two packages of pasta. Tastier and better for you than a can of high sodium soup!
