|1. Heat soup with 3 cups (750 mL) water in large stock pot set over medium heat; bring to simmer, stirring often, for 8 to 10 minutes or until heated through. Stir in tortellini and Swiss chard. Cook for about 5 minutes or until tortellini is cooked and Swiss chard is wilted. (Alternatively, heat soup according to package directions. Then add cooked tortellini and blanched Swiss chard just before service.) Keep warm for service. (Makes 21 cups/5.25 L).|
- Ladle 1 1/3 cups (325 mL) soup into serving bowl, ensuring that tortellini and Swiss chard are distributed evenly per portion. Top with 2 tbsp (30 mL) ricotta, 1 tbsp (15 mL) basil and 1 tsp (5 mL) olive oil.
