This Tuscan tortellini soup has been a cold weather staple at our house for the last four years! I hadn’t even planned to post it until Michael tried it and started raving about how good it was. I always get so excited when I can create a recipe that he really loves! Not only is it incredibly flavored, but a quick and easy 20 minute homemade dinner! 

This recipe contains every staple that I crave: simple, quick, and an easy clean up. I find it to be the perfect comfort food on a cold day and especially comforting if you are dealing with a pesky cold or allergies! 

 

What is Tortellini?

Tortellini is a stuffed noodle, usually filled with a mix of cheeses and folded into a fortune cookie shape so they hold their filling while cooking. Tortellini can be filled with anything from vegetables to meats! They are traditionally cooked in and served with a broth.

 

Tuscan Tortellini Soup Ingredients

  • White onion – A small one is all you will need!
  • Garlic – I love garlic, but if you aren’t a fan you can always cut down the amount used. 
  • Chicken Broth – You can easily replace this with bone broth or vegetable broth.
  • Diced Tomatoes – Their sweetness balances this savory soup perfectly. 
  • White Beans – White bean soups are my favorite by far! 
  • Tortellini – The star of our show friends! I use cheese filled for this soup and purchase it in the refrigerated section at the grocery store. 
  • Chicken – There are many nights I don’t even use chicken in this soup (see variations below), but when I do it is most definitely precooked from the grocery store! 
  • Spinach – I use baby spinach for this recipe and love how beautifully it wilts in. 
  • Parmesan – Shaved is my personal favorite! 
  • Heavy Cream – The cream adds the final touch to this soup. You can substitute with milk if needed. 
  • Italian Seasoning – Any will do! I have been using Herbes De Provence from Trader Joes the most lately. 
  • Salt & Pepper – To taste, of course! 

 

How to Make Tuscan Tortellini Soup

  1. In a large pot, melt butter over medium heat. Add in diced onion and minced garlic and cook until tender.
  2. Add chicken broth, diced tomatoes, white beans, heavy cream, shredded Parmesan, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper to the pot with the onion and garlic stirring to combine.
  3. Bring the soup to a simmer.
  4. Stir in shredded chicken, cheese tortellini, and spinach.
  5. Simmer for 10 minutes. Tortellini should be cooked through and soup should thicken.
  6. Serve with shredded Parmesan and your favorite bread!

 

Variations We Love

  • To make this soup vegetarian simply remove the chicken and add an extra can of white beans. We do this quite often! 
  • To make it gluten free look for a gluten free tortellini or swap it to a gluten free noodle.
