Easy Tortellini Soup

This easy Tuscan Chicken Tortellini Soup is made in ONE pot and a family favorite meal! When the temperature drops outside, we like to make this cozy and comforting soup. Our boys love it and request it often when it’s chilly outside. It warms them up and it’s loaded with tons of good stuff: vegetables, beans, herbs, chicken, tortellini…there’s something for everyone!

To keep this soup SOUPer easy, my number one suggestion is to cheat and use a store bought rotisserie chicken. This takes cooking and shredding the chicken out of your prep time and it’s still delicious. If you happen to have leftover chicken or even turkey, this is a good soup to use it up!

Cheese Tortellini

I use a store-bought cheese tortellini. You can find tortellini at almost every grocery store. I like to use refrigerated cheese tortellini, but frozen works well too. If your store has spinach cheese tortellini or tri-color tortellini, those varieties work well too! For this tortellini soup recipe, you need 9 ounces.

How to Make Tuscan Chicken Tortellini Soup

  • Start with a large pot, olive oil, and medium-high heat. Add in onion, carrots, and celery first and let those cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add garlic next!
  • Now the liquid! Stir in chicken broth and tomatoes, and add your spices: thyme, oregano, salt, and pepper.
  • Add in shredded chicken, beans, and cheese tortellini. Put the heat on low and let everything summer for 10 minutes.
  • Finish it off with parmesan cheese, kale, and basil, letting everything simmer for 5 more minutes. Note-I like to use Tuscan kale, but spinach works well too!
  • Serve the tortellini soup immediately, garnished with Parmesan, fresh basil, and red pepper flakes for a little spice.

What to Serve with Tortellini Soup

The number one thing my boys love to eat with this soup is BREAD! I love prepping a loaf of garlic bread or focaccia bread to serve warm with a bowl of soup. That makes for plenty of delicious bread dunking!

You can also serve a simple side salad to add in even more veggies into your meal. Soup, salad, bread…the perfect meal!

    I am making this soup recipe for dinner tonight. I am really looking forward to it. I noticed when I took out the new bottles of thyme and oregano that they both are ground spices. ??? I would guess that your recipe is based on the spices being chopped and dried leaves. Do you have any recommendations on how how much to use of the ground spices. Do you have thoughts on using ground versus the dried chopped leaves? Thank you for the recipe and your input!

    I made the soup and it was wonderful. My husband is not a soup fan and when I make soup he will have it the first night but none after that. We had it for dinner two nights in row and he said that this was the best soup he has ever had! Thanks for the great recipe! I would rate it five stars again but the site won’t let me.

    1. Yes! You can also freeze with the tortellini. The pasta might break up a little, but it’s still good!
