Creamy Chicken and Tortellini Potato Soup Recipe

Fall and winter time brings chillier days, where all you want to do is just cozy up and stay warm. What better way to stay warm with then this chicken and mushroom tortellini soup? Especially since we have had a really mild winter this year.  However, the comfort foods and soups have not changed from our weekly menu. I love nothing more than a hot bowl of soup with some fresh bread or crackers as the snow falls softly and winds howl outside. It kind of makes everything better, way better. The creativity in the soups department goes beyond imagination sometimes. I love to try new foods, I love to experiment so my family has to deal with the good and the bad (and very bad) creations. I have this love relationship with mushrooms, they are just so dear to me (lol). I love the flavor they bring to any dish (we will one day incorporate them into desserts somehow). This soup was inspired by the Creamy Chicken Potato Soup and believe it or not the Chicken Potato Casserole. I just love the wonderful ingredients in both of these recipes. I had been wanting to try cheese tortellini in soup, so I finally did. I promise my mouth, tummy and whole being had a party, we were so happy with the results. Sautéed chicken meat with mushrooms, potatoes and cheese tortellini in a creamy sauce leaves me somewhat speechless. I will just say, Yum!

(P.S. Don’t mind the terrible quality of my photos, had a little accident and busted my good camera lens, not good, not good at all. Sigh..)
