This isn’t just a warm bowl of soup, it’s a heart warming memory for me. My Great Grandma Lee always treated me to a piping hot bowl of happiness every time I came over. It’s like she had an endless supply. I absolutely loved the tortellinis, the way the parm cheese would melt to the bottom of the bowl. My grandma Lee would take a seat across from me and patiently wait until I was ready for my next bowl. She sure was a first class woman of her era. She was ready to serve her family at any time. She is so dearly missed. Her memory is alive, especially during the holidays when we get the soup going. I hope this soup brings your family as much warmth as it has given mine!
