Italian Tortellini Soup Recipe

I have tried copying several chicken soup recipes from those I have eaten at restaurants such as Olive Garden. You just have to do a search on the recipe name. As for the escarole, I often put escarole or raw spinach leaves on top of my chicken soup. Just wash it, tear it into pieces and float it on top of the soup. Very delish and good for you, too.
