Chicken Tortellini Soup Recipe

Publisher Photo
This recipe puts a different spin on traditional chicken noodle soup. I like to use cheese tortellini instead of plain noodles for a pleasant and filling change of pace. This easy creation has become a family favorite that I can count on often. —Jean Atherly, Red Lodge, Montana

Flavorful, simple and quick to make and, best of all, very healthy!! This will go into the "soup rotation" schedule at our house! :)

We made this using the body and scrap meat of a whole chicken we cut up another night. By doing that, we cooked it will all broth. Everything went together well. My husband preferred to soak up the broth with bread then add cheese to all the bits. I enjoyed it sans cheese.

This soup has a very tasty blend of seasonings & is very easy to make. The tortellini is a nice variation from noodles. I used fresh cauliflower & broccoli in place of the frozen veggies & used leftover chicken.. This makes a thick soup. which I like, but some people might prefer to add more broth.
