Chicken Tortellini Soup Recipe

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

"I made this last night and was disappointed. Not much flavor. It didn't taste bad but it was just not enough flavor to say it was good. Will not make again and can't recommend this recipe but I do love Taste of Home recipes in general."

"Delicious, easy and healthy! The only addition I would make is to add more liquid. By the time the last two servings were reached in the pot there was very little broth left."

"This soup was very good. I didn't have the refrigerator tortellini but I did have frozen tortellini. So I cooked the frozen tortellini and then added it to the soup. This soup is great on a cold night."

"I make broth a lot and I found an awesome trick. I will use the carcass of a Costco whole chicken, put it in a cheese cloth and simmer for a couple hours with about 3 boxes of store bought broth. I put the wrapped chicken in the pot with the broth and fill the pot to a level I want with water. I always have people asking why my soup is so tasty. A turkey carcass would work too. I'd break it down, put it in cheese cloth to fit in a pot. Very flavorful."

"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."
