It’s that time again! Fall is the season of cozy evenings, where the chill in the air makes us long for warmth and comfort. But the hustle and bustle of a busy autumn doesn’t always allow for leisurely stovetop cooking, which leaves us tempted to opt for a less nutritious choice as we rush home from work or after-school activities. What better way to satisfy these cravings in a healthy way than with a steaming bowl of Salmon Tortellini Soup?!
