Chicken Tortellini Soup

This Chicken Tortellini Soup is the perfect one dish, weeknight dinner. Loaded with juicy chunks of chicken, tender tortellini, veggies and a bit of sausage, this soup is sure to please the entire family! Oh and best news, it can be prepped in less than 30 minutes! Here’s a yummy recipe that puts a rich and creative spin on everyone’s favorite soup – chicken noodle. This isn’t the old, trusted standby your mom served when you were sick or needing something to warm your insides after a cold day. Tortellini is the star in this dish, subbing in for plain egg noodles and bringing with it lots of extra flavor and heartiness. The creative (sneaky) addition of greens packs the soup with texture and extra “good for you” stuff that will pass the test of even the pickiest eaters. Kids of all ages can’t get enough! One of my favorite things about the soup is how quickly it comes together. Chicken Tortellini Soup is an easy and delicious choice for a weeknight meal or a busy weekend thanks to a simple ingredient list of things you’re likely to already have on hand. Like chili and other hearty soups and stews, the flavors in this dish continue to marry in the refrigerator, making it even better the next day. I usually make extra for some welcomed leftovers, but if you...
