Ingredients

Here's how to make it:

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot. Add the onion, carrots and celery and cook about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring constantly, about 1 more minute. Sprinkle in the flour and cook, stirring, about 2 minutes. 
  2. Add all but 1/2 a cup of the chicken broth to the pot. Stir the cornstarch into the 1/2 cup of broth and add to pot (this prevents lumps). Add beans, ham, mustard, bay leaves, bouillon and herbs/spices. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and cook about 20 minutes. 
  3. Add tortellini and cook about 3 minutes, or until al dente. Add half-and-half and warm through. Taste and adjust seasonings. 

Variations: 

  • Omit the tortellini and add another can of white beans.
  • Omit the beans and add the entire bag of frozen tortellini.
  • Add cubed red potatoes when you cook the onions, celery and carrots instead of the tortellini.
  • Use leftover chicken instead of ham
