Brought some chicken and mushroom tortellini from Asda and picked up what I thought was a sauce to go with it, but it's not it's mushroom soup.

Can I still use it ???

I know Campbells have recipes where they use their soup as pasta sauces. Might be a bit runny. You could liven it up a bit with some cream & white wine?

What you could do is fry up some onion, mushrooms and so on, then add the soup and simmer it a bit to reduce it, if it's too thin.

Or stir in a couple of spoonfuls of cream cheese/Dairylea/Philadephia to thicken it up.

Hmm haven't got any of those things in.

Could I use cornflour to thicken it up ???

Am really not a cooking person, so sorry if i sound s bit thick.

You could try thickening it with cornflour, mix it to a smooth paste first before you add it, then simmer for a few minutes.

It might affect the taste though, make it a bit floury.

Yes-I have done before.
Mushroom soup is also good for putting with chicken pieces in vol-au-vents

Think i'll wait and see what it's like when i start heating it and if it seems too runny i'll tyr a bit of cornflour.

i'd splash a bit of tabasco or worcestershire sauce in it to spice it up
