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.

We make soup.

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

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

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.

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.

    Hi
    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

      Hi Anne,

      Yes, 9 cups. How did it turn out? :)

    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

    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. :)

    • 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.

  26. 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!

    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.

      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! :)

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

      Hi Lauren,

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

    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

  33. 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!

    • 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.

    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!!!!!

    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. :)

  49. Vanessaposted October 26, 2017 at 6:21 pm Reply

    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.
