Reviews for Easy Tortellini Soup
"Excellent! I Also added two cups of rotisserie chicken to make it a meal."
"This was delicious!! I added some cut up chicken too."
"Delicious soup and so easy! I inadvertently grabbed a can of crushed tomatoes instead of diced tomatoes and decided to go ahead and use them. As a result, the soup didn't have the tomato chunks and didn't look much like the picture. My husband ate two servings and said that he liked the smoother consistency better than if I'd used diced tomatoes. I used reduced sodium broth to keep those numbers down and I don't think that it affected the taste at all. This soup went together so fast that it was almost as easy as opening a can of pre-made soup and it sure tasted better! If I were going to make any changes (other than my accidental oops), I might add either cooked shredded chicken or maybe some browned mild Italian sausage. A keeper!!"
"My whole family loves this soup. My daughter found this recipe and it is one of her favorites. It is very filling, and is one meal my meat loving husband eats and doesn't miss the meat. My son's vegetarian girlfriend loves it too, although for her, I use vegetable broth instead of chicken."
"I agree with the other reviews that it could use more liquid and I would put in a little less of the balsamic vinegar. It was too strong in my opinion. Otherwise, it was very simple to make and seems to be a healthy soup."
"I have made this recipe several times and I'm never disappointed ! This is better than restaurant quality, and super easy to make."
"This was really good. Tastes very "homemade" considering how easy it is!"
"Loved it, and so easy to make."
"I add some rotisserie chicken, and sliced mushrooms as well...so good make it again and again"
"I have cooked this recipe twice and tonight I doubled the recipe. My husband and I love this soup! I use my own stewed tomatoes that I had canned and I increase the amount of garlic too. It is so delicious! Thank you Gaye Thompson for sharing your tasty recipe!"
"This is my first ever recipe review. I just had to write on this one. I love it. When I make it I also take some to my elderly parents and it makes a wonderful healthy meal for them. The flavor is great. This is definitely one of my favorite soups."
"I just made this last night for the first time. I used herbed chicken with rosemary and roasted garlic tortellini and added just a bit more broth. It was delicious! This one is a keeper!"
"This is a great recipe, the flavors meld so well together. I did add additional chicken broth. It's great as leftovers as well. I have already made this four times since I found the recipe....it's a keeper!"
"Loved, loved, love it. Easy and delicous!!"
"This is a delicious soup. I will add less tortellini for my taste, but it is easy to make and healthy!"
"The recipe was wonderful. I tend to need more protein in my diet so I added a pound of chicken to round it out. This one is a keeper!"
"Excellent soup. I added more chicken broth than what is called for in the recipe."
"Easy to make, delicious, and filling. I used Italian diced tomatoes (with basil and oregano) and spinach cheese tortellini. Makes great leftovers as well. I served this with breadsticks to complete the meal."
"Loved it! My husband ate 3 bowls! Next time I will try making it with Italian tomatoes."
"This was so simple and absolutely delicious."
"YUM! This soup was so good & so easy. Also, the leftovers made a great lunch the next day. Will definitely be a "keeper" recipe."
"This is a very delicious soup, and easy to make! Makes a great lunch at work!"
"We really liked this soup. Very tasty and nutritious. It's more of a tomato base if you don't drain the tomatos than the picture suggests. It's a thicker soup so you can add extra broth to thin it if you would like. I think I'll try adding basil and oregano next time for a bit more Italian flavor."
"This is a really good and hearty soup. Look forward to making it again. Needs a bit more liquid so next time, will also add a can of water."
"Absolutely delicious! And so easy to make! I used the Italian diced tomatoes (with oregano and basil)."
"awesome soup to have anytime, love, love it."
