Tortellini and Pancetta Soup

HusbandPlzak is suffering from a cold and requested soup for dinner. I didn't have the fixings to make traditional chicken noodle soup so I decided to make an Italian version. This took less than 30 minutes to come together and really is full of soothing powers (ok maybe not but husbandplzak is feeling better today, so you try this and tell me for yourself!)

Meal: Tortellini and Pancetta Soup and Bruschetta with Artichoke Tapenade

Tortellini and Pancetta Soup
wifeplzak orginal recipe

1 tsp butter
6 oz pancetta, sliced thick
6 c. vegetable stock
16 oz frozen cheese tortellini
1 1/2 c. frozen peas
1/2 c. Parmesan cheese

In a large soup pot melt butter. Cut pancetta in a medium dice, add to pot, and cook till slightly crispy (2-3 minutes). Add vegetable stock and bring to a boil. Once boiling add frozen tortellini. They are done when they float to the top. Add peas and cook till warm, another 1-2 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste and garnish with Parmesan cheese.
