- quick recipe of the week -

Hi everyone...another start to another week...hopefully it's a great one for everyone!

Today I'd like to introduce you to Lindsay, from Little Mudpies. Lindsay's blog is a mishmash of her daily adventures of being a wife to an amazing man and Momma of two little boys and a sweet little girl puppy named, Oatmeal. On her blog, you'll find recipes for yummy treats like Caramel Apple Rice Krispie Treats and Chocolate Eclair Cake. DIY tutorials for Halloween Garland with Lights and her most popular Heatless Curls. You'll even get a glimpse inside her world, with her Momma Tales.

When I asked Lindsay if she would share a dinner recipe with you guys, she immediately said yes! She admits, she hasn't always loved to cook, but since she became a momma, she feels like it's her duty to at least try to feed her kids good, healthy, home cooked meals. (My thoughts exactly Lindsay!)

Today Lindsay is sharing the recipe for Vegetable Tortellini Soup. It's one of her family's favorites and with the cooler weather coming, she figured it would be perfect to share.

Vegetable Tortellini Soup
2 Tablespoons Oliver Oil
1 Medium Onion, Chopped
1 Medium Zucchini, Chopped
1 Medium Yellow Squash, Chopped
1 Medium Carrot, Peeled and chopped
6 Cups chicken stock (can use vegetable also)
2 Teaspoons basil (fresh or dried)
1 Bay Leaf
1 Can Diced Tomatoes
1 Package of Tortellini (fresh or frozen)
2 - 3 Tablespoons Parsley (fresh)
1 Tablespoon Garlic, Minced
Salt and Pepper to taste

Heat the oil in a large sauce pan on medium heat. Add all the veggies and sauté for 8-10 minutes or until the onion is soft. Stir often. Add the remaining ingredients and increase the heat to a boil. Add the tortellini. Set soup to a low boil cook for about 2-3 minutes. Reduce heat and let simmer for about 10 minutes. Stir in the salt, pepper and parsley. Remove bay leaf before serving.

Yum! I'm not much of a cook, I have never actually made soup before! My daughter is starting to eat more and more of our food instead of baby food though so I'm trying to improve.
