Chicken Tortellini Soup

Chicken Tortellini Soup

I love warming up with a hot bowl of soup, but since the toasty temps in Austin are just starting to drop, I’ve only just started to make them again. I especially love this chicken tortellini soup… it’s a great all-in-one meal with soft, flavorful veggies and tender tortellini combined with chunks of chicken.

Easy Chicken Tortellini Soup

You may even already have all the ingredients on hand to stir up this scrumptious, quick soup! All you need are carrots, chicken broth, cheese tortellini, chicken and a handful of parsley. Rosemary, thyme or basil would also be great. Top it with some bits of fresh Parmesan and you have a mouthwatering meal!

Parmesan Herb Garlic Bread

I either serve this soup with a loaf of my Parmesan Herb Garlic Bread, a big leafy salad, or both if hubby and I feel hungry enough for a big meal!

Chicken Tortellini Soup Recipe

Try this light, tasty soup some chilly fall weeknight or as a quick, no-fuss weekend meal. It’s super quick and easy to make for even the novice cook, and a nice break from boring meal routines!

1 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken

Salt and pepper, to taste

    Love the idea of replacing traditional noodles in chicken soup with tortellini. A bit of a fun twist on a classic. Thanks Georgia!

    I used to make tortellini soup all the time then somehow forgot about it, I’m glad you reminded me! Chicken tortellini soup sounds so good and very apt for the colder weather!
