Steak and Tortellini Soup
Autumn has come and with that is a whole new opportunity for meals smothered in gravy, cheese and everything warm and wonderful. I really kicked off comfort food season right last weekend while my grandparents were in town visiting. One of my favorite meals I made over the weekend was a steak and tortellini soup. It had a little spice, a little creaminess and a whole lot of flavor.
