Comfort food is the ultimate rejuvenator, you know?

I'll be the first to say: if you follow this recipe directly, you'll be getting something more of a very saucy sauce than a soup. Because I'm not that much of a fan of soups, believe it or not. But a little more water in here means it'll be plenty soupy (and still nice and thick the next day because of the tortellini you boil into everything). However, no matter what you want to call this, I'll just say that it is delicious, and it is one hundred percent worth putting into your weekly dinner rotation at least once in a while.


Unlike last time, where we had a full three course meal, this is some one pot comfort meal glory, and that makes it a lot easier on the mind when we're already overwhelmed. While I love me a good 5-star chef meal like steak, I just can't see why I shouldn't also be able to have a 5-star chef meal in the form of a one pot meal like this.


And while there are some steps to pay attention to, the good news is that it's pretty intuitive—and gives you plenty of time for prepping and cleaning up as you go. A real meditative experience here, honestly, and even more so if you're looking to do some magic. (And this recipe makes quite a bit, so be warned lol. My boyfriend and I ate huge bowls of this for 2-3 days. Had we eaten normal portions like normal people, we could've made it last a good 4-5 days, probably.)


Nonetheless, today we're looking primarily at fennel, nutmeg, celery, and parsley for our magical purposes, and they make this soup that much more interesting flavor wise, too. Let's get into it.

Magic in Tortellini Soup

Now, you can do a lot with this recipe, though. Sure, go ahead and do what I suggested with the power-up combo (which helps purify, protect, and strengthen you both body and mind), but you could also just as easily make this a meal for a date night spell by invoking the tomato, carrot, thyme, and wine, too. Or make it a money spell by looking to the onion, garlic, kale, and half and half! Whatever you decide to do with this, it's bound to be delicious and helpful as a kitchen spell.


But for those four ingredients I mentioned, you'll notice that these ingredients are ones that center around a few key themes: mental and psychic power (celery), luck and good health (nutmeg), and purification and protection (fennel and parsley). With the major planetary influence being the Messenger and ruler of all things intellectual, pragmatic, and technological, Mercury (supported by a touch of graceful, lucky Jupiter) and the major elemental energy being that creative, invigorating, passionate fire (supported a touch of intellectual, communicative air), this is the perfect blend of ingredients to grease the wheels for the new year. It'll help you wake up and sharpen your senses, as well as protect you and bring you luck while you keep striving for all your goals and aspirations in 2024.


Power-Up Tortellini Soup


Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook time: 45 minutes

Makes 6-8 servings


Ingredients:

  • 32 oz frozen tortellini (I used Italian sausage style)

  • 8 sausages (such as spicy Italian chicken sausage), sliced

  • 4 carrots, chopped

  • 3 celery stalks, chopped

  • 1 onion, diced

  • 5 cloves of garlic, minced

  • 1 cup white wine

  • 9oz tomato paste

  • 1 bunch parsley, chopped fine

  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour

  • 2 cups (1 pint) half and half

  • 3 large leaves of kale, chopped

  • 1/2 Tbsp ground fennel

  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Italian seasoning

  • 1 tsp nutmeg

  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder

  • 1/2 Tbsp onion powder

  • 1 chicken bouillon cube

  • 4-6 cups of water

  • Parmesan cheese for garnish

  • Salt and pepper to taste


Directions:

  1. Chop your vegetables and set aside.

  2.  Sweat onion in a pot until translucent, seasoning with salt and pepper.

  3.  Add garlic and fry until fragrant.

  4.  Add carrots and celery and let cook for five minutes, then add tomato paste.

  5.  Cook on low for five minutes, stirring occasionally, before adding in sausage and cooking until the fat releases.

  6.  Add chicken bouillon, dried herbs and spices, and one cup of wine.

  7.  Let wine simmer until nearly cooked out, then slowly incorporate flour and cook until thickened.

  8.  Slowly stir in water and bring back up to a simmer.

  9.  Add half and half and kale, bringing it up to a simmer again. Stir it now and again to prevent the dairy from burning.

  10.  Add tortellini and parsley and simmer until tortellini are cooked through.

  11.  Serve with parmesan cheese.


I loved every bite of this. It was rich, hearty, nutritious, and satisfying, and it made so many meals that I didn't have to cook much for the rest of the week afterwards. No matter what you're looking to do with your kitchen witchery, though, trust me when I say you gotta try this recipe! ♥
