Make this Creamy Chicken Tortellini Soup to warm up this fall!

We are deep into our fall routine.

The kids have settled in school. We are outside as often as possible, enjoying the crisp fall weather and turning leaves. We hike. We wear hoodies. We pick apples. We start the occasional fire in the fire pit. And we make soup.

There is nothing, nothing, as comforting as walking into the house after a long day to the wafting aroma of chicken tortellini soup.

My family deserves that at least once a week, in my opinion. Pure cozy goodness to relax the mind and sooth the soul.

Creamy Tortellini Soup

I used plenty of fresh veggies and herbs, boneless skinless chicken breasts, and DeLallo Three Cheese Tortellini found in the dried pasta section of your grocery store.

I am partial to DeLallo products because they take such care in making sure they import and produce the very best Italian foods in the country.

DeLallo Tortellini

Starting from humble beginnings, selling Italian imports from the back of a truck, this family business has grown into the true American dream. The grandchildren now carry on mom and dad’s vision with a DeLallo Store in Jeanette, Pennsylvania and DeLallo products sold in supermarkets from coast to coast.

I just love that!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Place a large sauce pot over medium heat. Add the olive oil and chopped onions. Saute for 3 minutes to soften. Then add the chopped bell pepper, carrots, and garlic. Saute another 3 minutes.
  2. Add whole raw chicken breasts, chicken broth, dried thyme, crushed red pepper, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper to the pot. Bring to a simmer. Lower the heat a little and simmer 15 minutes, until the chicken in cooked through. Remove the chicken and place on a cutting board.

  3. Turn the heat back to medium. With the broth still simmering, stir in the DeLallo Three Cheese Tortellini. Stir well so it doesn't stick together. Then chop or shred the chicken and place back in the soup.
  4. Once the tortellini is cooked through, about 10-14 minutes, turn off the heat. Stir in 1/4 cup heavy cream, spinach, and parsley. Add a little more cream if desired. Taste, then salt and pepper as needed.

    Instead of heavy cream I used a pack of ranch dressing. What I had on hand at the time.. But still very good with cornbread.. 😄

    Could I freeze this?  Would you suggest leaving out the pasta until thawed and then add in to cook?  Thanks!

      Hi Amy,

      You can freeze it with the pasta. Just make sure to thaw it at room temperature, undisturbed, before stirring or reheating. :)

    As a Pittsburgher I was intrigued by your use and obvious appreciation of DeLallo products. I’m fortunate to live close enough to visit the Jeannette store regularly. Never disappointed there. Am looking forward to trying this recipe.
