When cheese-filled tortellini is the noodle in your chicken noodle soup, the whole bowl gets a hearty upgrade. Using cheese-filled tortellini as the noodle here adds more flavor than plain pasta; a hint of miso further enriches the broth. You can make the soup a couple of days ahead—just leave out the pasta, as it will swell once it goes into the liquid. Reheat the soup until it comes to a simmer. Then add the tortellini, and cook 6 minutes.

Bring a bowl of warmth to a friend with this classic American comfort food. Flavorful stock, fresh-cooked chicken, traditional vegetables, and egg noodles lend starchy body to the broth of this favorite soup.
To save cleanup time, cook the noodles first, and then use the same pot for the soup. Add the noodles to the soup just before serving so they don't absorb too much of the broth. You can bring the noodles to work in a zip-top plastic bag. Make the soup the night before, cool to room temperature, and refrigerate; reheat in the microwave or in a slow cooker set on HIGH.
Quality brown stock is the key to this recipe. Brown stock differs from white stock in that the chicken and vegetables spend half the time caramelizing in the oven and the other half in the stockpot flavoring the liquid. Once you have the stock made, throwing together this soup is a snap.
