This satisfying vegetarian main is a great way to reset after a few weeks of meat-centered holiday eating. Make sure to cool the soup base completely before adding the tortellini; otherwise the pasta will absorb too much liquid and become gummy. Cook the remaining half package of tortellini and top salads for lunch during the week, or seal in a ziplock freezer bag, and freeze until you’re ready to use them. Vegetable stocks can differ in concentration—you may want to start with less and make up the difference with a bit more water depending on the brand you choose.
