To warm your heart

Today's recipe came from my favorite sister-in-law, Amanda. It was originally a Beef Tortellini Soup, but this time Mom altered the recipe slightly to make Chicken Tortellini Soup, served with homemade French bread (the bread recipe is available on special request!). It really is a wonderful way to feel warm and cozy on a cold winter day... which I know many of you up North could use this week! It cooks for a looong time, which will make your house smell incredible in the afternoon to welcome the family home from school or work.

Combine the following ingredients in a crock pot and cook on LOW for 8-9 hours:

2 chicken breasts, cut up
1 onion, chopped
1 celery stalk, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 tsp. sugar
1 can diced tomatoes
2 cans chicken broth

About 25 minutes before serving, add:

2 cups frozen tortellini
1 tsp of basil

At the bottom of the recipe, Amanda wrote: "This is probably one of my favorite soups of all time. Perfect when it is cold, and even better with fresh bread. Comfort food to the max!" And we couldn't agree more!
