Reviews for Garlic Tortellini Soup
"This was super easy to make and I loved the flavor. The chilies really made the difference. Even my husband liked it."
"soothing and warming on a cold winter night. next time will add more garlic (we love it so.) also maybe a mix of cheese and meat tortellini."
"AMAZING dish. Quick, easy, and TASTEY. I added 3 garlic cloves instead and used a four cheese tortellini. Low sodium chicken broth did well for me as well as low sodium italian herb diced tomatoes. Perfect for a cold winter evening!"
"Quick. Easy. And just a few ingredients. I used fresh spinach instead though. Yummy! If you are concerned about sodium, I used lower sodium broth to decrease it. It was still great."
"This soup was really very good. I used one bag of fresh baby spinach, stems removed & a larger pkg of tortellini. It had lots of flavor & very easy to make. The review below of one star should be removed as it is not a review but an opinion about sodium. Some people have no issues with sodium & for them it is not a concern. This person doesn't have to make this recipe."
"I made as written, with the addition of shredded boneless, skinless chicken. It was tasty, but I didn't think it was a winner. Just not outstanding flavorwise. My inlaws, who are both diabetic, did appreciate the recipe concept though."
"How can this soup possibly rate a five star when it contains nearly 1200 mg sodium. . .that's almost as much as a person should have covered over the entire day's food intake. OMG. . .I'd be in big trouble taking in this much sodium in only one serving."
"I have a recipe very similar. Try adding an 8 oz. block cream cheese cut into really small pieces, it melts better. I add everything at the start of the recipe and cook on low. It's so good."
