Creamy Tortellini Soup without the Cream
You will think this soup is loaded with heavy cream because it is so creamy and so good, but Greek yogurt is the secret ingredient to this creamy tortellini soup. The Greek yogurt makes the soup super creamy without adding all of the fat and calories!
Make sure your Greek yogurt is at room temperature before adding it to the soup so it will melt right in. If you don’t have Greek yogurt, you can use sour cream, but we love using Greek yogurt in this soup.
I like to add fresh basil and shredded Parmesan cheese to my bowl of warm tortellini soup! They are the perfect finishing touches to this easy soup!
