Creamy White Bean, Ham and Tortellini Soup

It looks like winter has finally arrived here in PA and I’m ready to bring out all the comfort food recipes I’ve been saving. Soup is one of the meals I make most in the winter time. I love being able to throw everything into one pot (or slow cooker) and dinner is served. Quick and easy!

This soup was hearty and thick – almost more of a stew than a soup. My kids loved it – even my daughter who HATES soup. The next time I make it, I’m going to make swap out some of the ingredients for chicken stock to make it a non-creamy version and a little bit lighter.

Creamy Spring Tortellini with Bacon

The weather has been off here in PA, so we’re now just getting spring veggies. I’ve been craving green vegetables lately, so when I got a box of spring peas in my CSA, I knew I wanted to whip up a pasta dish with them. I found this quick and easy recipe for tortellini with peas, asparagus and bacon – PERFECTION! I mean really, you can’t go wrong with bacon!! Another perk of this recipe, it’s quick and easy for those busy weeknights.
