Tortellini Soup

Today’s Creamy Chicken Tortellini Soup is a health-ified version of a heavier cream-based soup.

I haven’t removed the essential elements that make it special such as tender chicken, hearty cheese tortellini, and even a little cream. I’ve just reduced certain ingredients, so you can feel good about serving this Creamy Chicken Tortellini Soup to your family.

And maybe even having seconds.

Creamy Chicken Tortellini Soup

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.

Chicken Tortellini Soup Recipe

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.

Tortellini #ASpicyPerspective

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!

I stay stocked up on DeLallo olives, olive oil, pasta, and tomatoes. This dried tortellini is a marvelous pantry item, because it allows to you to keep rich luxurious tortellini on hand all the time.

Adding it to this Creamy Chicken Tortellini Soup gives it the extra something that makes it a true fall favorite.

  • 1 tablespoon DeLallo Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 large sweet onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 2 cups carrots, sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/4 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast (2 large breasts)
  • 9 cups chicken broth
  • 8.8 ounces DeLallo Three-Cheese Tortellini Pasta
  • 1/4-1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons packed frozen spinach or 1/2 cup fresh baby spinach leaves
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme leaves or 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • Salt and pepper


  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.

    I have made this soup at very least 10 different times, my boyfriend and I LOVE it! We enjoy spicy so the red pepper flakes are a must! Love how it’s comforting and is different from your typical chicken noodle soups and doctored up to be spicy and creamy. I sometimes add just a little chopped fresh ginger root for extra kick and health benefits. THANK YOU FOR THIS RECIPE! 10 stars!!!!!

    If using a crockpot: We added the cream at the beginning of the cooking process and it curdled. We had to use a strainer to take out as much as we could. Upon looking it up later, with crockpots any cream or milk should be added at the very end. Besides that, the recipe was delicious! Good blend of spices!

    Tastes good, but would have been better with out the 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes I added. Very spicy!! 🌶🌶  I tried adding more cream, but it was still spicy.  Recipe calls for 1/2 tsp. I will eliminate that ingredient next time! Would add more tortellini to this recipe for amount of broth (1/2 pkg. or so).
    I prefer adding shredded rotisserie chicken at the end too. The chicken gets done quickly, so watch carefully so you don’t over cook it.

    Love this soup so much! It’s now in our regular rotation and I’m making an extra batch this week to take to a mom friend who just had a baby! My only change is adding a bunch more spinach. I always use fresh and it’s probably about 2 cups then chopped before throwing in. So delicious!

I just made this tortellini soup (modified just a bit to make in the Instant Pot) and it was, hands down, the BEST soup I’ve (we’ve) ever had! My 5 yo son and my husband both wanted to lick the bowl!

    • Sommer Collierposted December 6, 2018 at 6:27 am Reply

      Hi Hannah,

      Yes! Make sure to sauté the veggies on the stovetop first. Then you can slow cook the soup (without the pasta) for 3-4 hours on high, or 6-8 hours on low. I would add the pasta in 30 minutes before serving. :)

    This recipe is delicious! I made it in a crockpot. I put in the chicken, broth, veggies (EXCEPT the spinach) and spices to cook on low for 6 hours. Then I added the cream (substituted a whole can of coconut milk), spinach, tortellini (19oz frozen) and the fresh parsley and cooked for 45 more minutes. I snuck in a ton of extra fresh spinach and it still turned out amazing. Thanks for the recipe!

    This soup is amazing! I have made it several times and myself and my husband and we LOVE it. We are not crazy for bell peppers in our soup so I substituted them with mushrooms and it was a huge hit. I also suggest using fresh spinach-it makes a big difference. Also, don’t go crazy using the name brand tortellini, I used stop n shop brand and it was great. Definitely make this soup you will not be disappointed!

    I found if you cook the pasta separately, drain, and add pasta to the individual bowls of chicken soup, you can store the soup without breaking down the pasta.  I refridgerate the leftover pasta and soup and add a handful to each bowl the next day and it tastes and looks great.  I learned to do this when I make any soup involving rice or pasta as some members of family like pasta while others don’t and the same with turkey rice soup from Thanksgiving.

    I think your calorie counter may be off. You note this recipe is 172 calories. However, the package of tortellini is 900 calories or 165 calories/servings for 6 servings. Just adding the chicken in at 77 calories/serving means this recipe is ~240 calories. Per my calculation, this recipe clocks in around 300-400 calories.

    This soup has become a staple in our house! We love it! I do make some slight variations. Instead of adding Bell pepper and crushed red pepper I use chopped celery and sometimes leek. I also use fresh chopped spinach. I recently added finely chopped kale and that was good too! The kicker for our house though is instead of adding heavy cream we add a few tablespoons of sour cream and shredded parmesan cheese! This gives the soup a little tang, which we like!

    i love this recipe. I make it about once a month. the thing i love about it is that i normally have most of the ingredients and can also just kind of throw in whatever i have around the house too. Tonight i had few strips of bacon leftover, i cooked those up first and then cooked the onions in it and followed the rest of the recipe. It turned out fantastic! i also always use a handful of fresh spinach because that is generally what i have around. thanks for the recipe! this also makes a VERY hardy 6 servings, if you have a little side of bread or something with it, you can definitely get a few more servings.

    It probably will. But that doesn’t mean it can’t taste great. Curious, do vegetarian friends of yours eat dairy? If not, you will also need to substitute the cheese tortellini and the cream. Try spinach filled Tortellini instead of cheese, and coconut or cashew milk instead of cream. You can also thicken the soup with a small amount of mashed potato, pureed in a blender. It will be different but probably still taste outstanding.

    This soup was amazing. Last night I had left over chicken, so I used shredded chicken from last night in the soup instead of cooking the chicken in the soup. I also added extra heavy cream.

    I just made this and it is delish! I did add just a little frozen broccoli and a few tips of asparagus. Wow this is a winner!

    So good! My fiance loves this soup, as do I. I told him I was making it again tonight and he was very excited. Can’t wait! Going to add celery just because I have it and want to use it up.

    Can substitute greek yogurt for heavy cream?

    • Sommerposted October 27, 2017 at 2:02 pm Reply

      Hi Vanessa,

      You can definitely make this swap! Just whisk it in a little at a time so it doesn’t clump.

  108. Cindyposted October 24, 2017 at 4:30 pm Reply

    Could you use milk instead of heavy cream, and then thicken with flour/water mixture?  I don’t have any heavy cream.

    • Sommerposted October 24, 2017 at 7:26 pm Reply

      Hi Cindy,

      You could! The texture will be slightly different though. :)

    This is the MOST delicious thing I have made in a long time. I followed the recipe pretty much to the letter. Didn’t really measure. Eyeballed the seasonings and used chicken and  mozzarella  tortellini rather than three cheese, and three chicken breasts not two. Adding the cream is where the magic happens. It’s not thick, but there is a creamy consistency  to it. Absolutely fantastic!!!!!

    • Sommerposted September 16, 2017 at 10:49 am Reply

      Hi Carlie,

      Soups usually last about a week in the refrigerator. However, the pasta will absorb the broth and break up after the first 3-4 days.

    Out of this world delicious!! My kids and hubby raved.
    I thickened it just a tad by whisking flour into my chicken stock. So good!

  123. Micheleposted August 13, 2017 at 9:43 pm Reply

    Great recipe. We skipped the bell pepper since my daughter hates them, used the fresh spinach option and probably put more cream than strictly necessary. Very tasty and everyone in the family thinks it is a keeper. Thanks!

    Have a grandson with dairy allergy. Wondering if this fantastic looking soup would work with other than cheese tortellini ? Any suggestions for an alternative? Thanks

  125. Laurenposted July 10, 2017 at 10:38 pm Reply

    It’s okay to add the raw chicken to the soup to cook? 

    • Sommerposted July 11, 2017 at 3:13 am Reply

      Hi Lauren,

      Absolutely! The chicken cooks in the soup while it’s simmering. :)

    Made this Sunday for lunches this week and its amazing!!! Looking like I will have a lot leftover. Do you think it will freeze well, or should I try to use up the leftovers quickly.

    • Sommerposted May 7, 2017 at 12:15 pm Reply

      Hi Beth!

      Tortellini doesn’t usually freeze very well, but you could give it a try. If you do, let me know how it thaws out! :)

  129. Michelleposted April 24, 2017 at 10:30 pm Reply

    It was so good! Definitely be making again, its been a great meal in our unfortunately sick house!

  130. Kristin Avrilposted March 17, 2017 at 5:02 pm Reply

    I made this EXACTLY as written with one minor exception: I left out the crushed red pepper since I didn’t have any. Everything else was the same, and it was soooooo delicious! I love soup, and this really hit the spot. I will say that because of the tortellini, it was incredibly filling, so plan to eat less than you normally would with soup. I made a small bowl and still ended up not finishing it because it was so filling. Brava!

    The soup is awesome I added extra veggies and diced the chicken before I cooked it! Thanks for the inspiration!

    How does this soup freeze? Thanks!

    • Sommerposted January 9, 2017 at 9:19 am Reply

      Hi Brandi,

      Yes, however I would freeze it right away so the tortellini doesn’t absorb too much of the broth and turn soggy.

    Honwant to make this ahead for a party.  Would this be ok to keep in a crockpot or will noodles get funky??

    • Sommerposted December 15, 2016 at 8:54 am Reply

      Hi Kristi!

      If you plan to make the soup a day or two ahead, I would make the soup base, but not add the pasta until the day of the party. Then bring it to a boil before your guests arrive, and simmer as directed. You can put it in a crockpot to keep it warm after that. :)

    I need to feed 5 people of which 4 are boys .

    This recipe says it yields 6 servings . Is this pretty accurate ? If so I would need to double receipe.

    Thank you

    I made this soup last night, delicious!!!!  A slight variation, used Italian sausage instead of chicken, but with chicken stock & added a spoonful of Lemon pickle to spice it up a bit. Perfect for my taste buds. Thank you
