Eating a similar soup at a restaurant inspired me to created this very dressy cream of potato soup. Its flavored with roasted garlic and full of cheesy tortellini and meaty portobellos. Fresh basil or parsley make a great garnish.

2 tablespoons butter
1 head garlic - roasted
2 1/2 large potatoes - sliced
1 quart chicken stock
3/8 cup heavy cream
3/8 cup milk
1 pinch salt
1 pinch white pepper
2 large portobellos - sliced
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup tortellini - cheese-filled

In saucepan melt the butter over medium heat. Add the potato slices and saute , about 5 minutes. Add the chicken stock. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce the heat to low, and simmer until the potatoes are very soft, about 30 minutes. Squeeze "garlic meat" out of roasted garlic. Add to saucepan. Transfer to a food processor and puree until very smooth. return to heat. Add tortellini to soup. Meanwhile, in a small frying pan saute portobellos in butter. When tortellinis are all'dente, stir in the cream and milk. Add portobellos and season to taste with salt and pepper.
