"This hearty soup is one we have often here during the cold winter months. It has lovely rich and savory flavors we really enjoy. Make sure you are using a good quality beef broth as this is what makes this soup so great."

Melt the butter with the oil in a dutch oven or heavy bottom pot over medium high heat; stir in the basil, oregano and thyme and cook for 1 minute to release their aroma.

Step 3

Stir in the salt and pepper and add the ground beef; cook until the beef is browned.

This is good and easy and uses ingredient that are mostly on hand. I did use more tortellini and used vegetable broth instead of beef broth but otherwise made as directed. Filling and good. Thanks for sharing!
