Simple Tortellini soup

I had this simple Cheese tortellini soup at a friends house it was sooo GOOD, and I never got the recipe from her. So good, the girls loved it. So I am trying to recreate it. Her soup was a simple broth, carrots and celery and cheese tortellini, simplicity. It was light and filling all at once. I added zucchini because the girls love it and I add vegetables to their meals any chance I get. I also made these crisps to go on top. But it's not necessary, just grated cheese on top of the soup is fine. The girls and I had this soup, a caprese salad and rice pudding for dinner tonight. I need to post the crock pot rice pudding recipe I tried out today.

Low sodium chicken broth- or broth powder
1 package cheese tortellini, I couldn't find cheese so I got sausage.
2 carrots
1 small zucchini
2 celery sticks
Olive oil

grated Parmesan cheese
Parmesan crisps
celery leaves

Chop up the vegetables into bite sized pieces.

Saute the vegetables in some olive oil. Give the carrots a good minute or two head start before you add the others.

Season with salt and pepper.

Add broth, about... 8 cups?

Once the vegetables are halfway done add the tortellini. Don't let the vegetables become soft first, you'll still need to cook the tortellini for a good 8-10 minutes, according to the package.

Get the garnishes ready.
