Soups are a great lunch, precursor to a meal, or even a light dinner. They are usually pretty simple to prepare and often only require one pan for cooking the entire thing.
Tortellini soup is nice because the pasta adds a little extra heartiness to the soup making it more filling and satisfying. While you can of course make tortellini from scratch, most recipes call for refrigerated, dried, or frozen pasta to keep things simple. Tortellini can be filled with cheese for a vegetarian option or with meat like chicken, sausage, or bacon.
The broth in the tortellini soups can vary from a light chicken broth to a hearty cream soup to a rich tomato-based mixture. Other ingredients will be widely varied as well including meats like chicken or meatballs and veggies like onions, bell peppers, mushrooms and tomatoes. You'll see we have recipes for both stove-top and crockpot versions of this soup.
