Creamy Tortellini Soup for the win!

Hey Hi, internetS friends! How in the heck are ya? GREAT, I hope!

Wanna talk about current events?!

Yesterday my little one started preschool and I didn’t cry! AND neither did she!! But, that one had me puzzled for a bit. Like, should I be okay with the fact that she didn’t tug on my clothes and cry out all her tears for me? In fact, her demeanor to the whole thing was more like, “Bye, Felicia!”. She just walked off, ran toward all the other little ones and never looked back!
You think she was just being brave??

Where’s the wine? Is 10 am too early?

Aleksandra's First Day

Cute, ain’t she??? Just like her Mom! Duh. 😉

It’s been nearly nine months since I shared a soup recipe and, well, that’s just not right.

This tortellini amazingness before us is just throwing a bunch of stuff together in a pot and waiting for it to finish cooking. It has layers upon layers of flavors and lotsa texture. I’m a texture faaaah-reak.

In my perfect world, eating carbs would be considered exercise and they would burn every fat cell in the body, and I would eat a big bowl of this Creamy Tortellini Soup for lunch every day.

However, in my perfect world I would also live in the city, have a butler, a private chef, a driver, and I would be able to properly wear skinny jeans with booties, and my ankles would look skinny as can be!

Them darn booties make my ankles look like I have cankles underneath.

So yeah, this beautiful tortellini soup has just about everything your little [vegetarian] heart desires; cheesy tortellini, carrots and spinach. A little roux and a splash of milk makes it super creamy, soul-warming, and of course, comforting. It’s also pretty to look at.

  1. […] The other great thing I love about fall? Food. Fall = comfort food. Chili, soups, pumpkin flavored dessert, pumpkin flavored coffee, apple pie, and so on. The cooler air outside gives a perfect reason to cook up some hearty soup to enjoy while wrapped up in a blanket. Will and I have a must-try soup recipe that is a tried and true fall favorite. (I actually made it for dinner this week!) We are trying to eat a vegetarian diet at the moment, but if you’re a meat eater you can add some mild or spicy Italian sausage to give it a little something extra. If you skip the sausage, I’d recommend adding some paprika and/or cayenne pepper as well. Here’s the link to the recipe! —> Creamy Tortellini Soup […]

    I just made this for my husband and myself. Pregnant me was craving something hot and creamy. This was delicious though I have to admit I didn’t measure a single thing. I love recipes that you can just estimate each ingredient and adjust to taste. I also wanted more veggies (I’m a vegetarian so I often add more to any recipe) so I added a can of diced tomatoes without draining it and it was the perfect touch. Will make again.

  3. Melissa

    You know you found a good soup when your kid ask you almost begs you make it. This easy to make and my family loves it. I have made this several times. We got a football game tonight need something ready eat eat so we can get to going. So I’m making this yummy soup.

  4. Carla

    It’s a perfect rainy day for soup and I’ve been wanting to try this one! I modified it just a little by adding chicken stock instead of vegetable stock. And also because my family needs something a little more hearty, I knew I wanted to try adding some spinach & asiago chicken sausage. It was the perfect combination. I’ve definitely added this to our list of favorites!
    Thank you for sharing!

    Hi! I just moved to New Zealand from Austin, Texas this last December and I kept waiting for summer to start and then all of a sudden the first day of autumn came and went and I was like, “THAT’S what you call summer?!” And now it’s May and winter is creeping in and it’s like Kiwis have never heard of central heating. Back home it’s already getting close to the 90s and I’m down here in the southern hemisphere wearing my leopard print slippers and a hoodie tied up around my face (with a knit Peruvian hat sticking out underneath because this shows my boyfriend I’m about to die from the cold and we need a house with GD central heating please!) and I’m cooking your creamy tortellini soup and oh my gosh…it was just what I needed. So delicious and comforting! They say it snows in June here…this Texas girl will be making all your soup recipes. Our kitchen is the warmest room in the house, so that’s where I’ll be, bundled up and cooking your soups.

    1. Hi Evelyn!! The nutritional facts were there, but a glitch in the system wiped them all out. I am so sorry about that, and thank you for letting me know that they were gone! I just included a new “nutritional facts” card right underneath the recipe box. I hope this helps. Thank you!

  6. Lindsey

    Great, easy recipe! I added mace (nutmeg) and a bit of fenugreek at the end which really added to the depth of flavor, but it was good before I added them.

  7. Jessica Ford

    I made this tonight and it was delicious! I think next time I’ll shred some chicken and add it in. Thanks for a great recipe!

  8. Amy

    I made this soup for dinner last night and it was delicious. I just added fresh cracked pepper to my bowl before eating. I could believe I could make such a yummy soup in such a short amount of time. Finally a soup I can make after work that is ready by dinner time!

  9. samantha

    this soup was delightful.

    added mushrooms and peas for my own personal touch but the base and soup is perfect within itself.
    didnt even add that much cream or milk and it still tasted decadent, rosemary from the garden a nice touch.

    thank you for this lovely soup!!!!

  10. Michelle

    I made a batch of this soup the other day for my husband and I and it was DELICIOUS. I am pregnant and have been having a very hard time finding food that is actually appetizing to eat. This seriously hit the spot, I have had at least one bowl of it everyday for the last 3 days…. In fact I’m eating a bowl now for lunch and it’s still delicious! This recipe is perfect! The carrots, spinach and onions were sublime! I used chicken broth instead of vegetable broth just because I can’t stand the smell of vegetable broth for some reason! Lol. Used regular milk and it came together SO GOOD. I ate mine just the way it was made and loved it, sprinkled some Parmesan cheese on my husbands and he said it was “over the top!” This recipe is absolutely perfect for my family! Thank you so much for sharing!!

    10 stars! 10 thumbs up!

  11. Heather

    I made this today. It was light and refreshing. I put a little shredded cheese in mine to add more flavor. I would give this recipe a 4/5.

  12. Ann-Marie Duque

    I made this tonight and this was by far the BEST tortellini soup recipe I’ve ever made!!! I didn’t have carrots on hand so that was eliminated, and I only added some parm cheese on top when I served it. Thank you for sharing!

  13. Lolly

    I made this tonight. I had to make a few changes, though. I didn’t have the spinach on hand but I will definitely add it next time I make it. I also only had chicken broth so I used that.

    This is outstanding. It’s a definite comfort food.

    Thank you for sharing it.

    cheers!

  14. Sherry

    Made this for a cold, rainy Friday night’s meal and it was stupendous! I’ll definitely make agin. Was a refreshing change from tomato base tortellini soups,

  15. Mrsyog

    The hubby dislikes cookedand or wilted spinach. Will only eat raw. Has anyone tried it with kale? I know, he is crazy. Will eat kale but not spinach! Lol

    1. Hi!! I’ve made it with kale plenty of times and it’s just as good. The only thing I do different when I make it with kale is that I stir in the kale at the very beginning with the onions. I hope that helps. 🙂

  16. kay

    I tried this tonight. It’s really good, Lighter than the usual tomato based soup like this I usually make. I love the spinach and carrots in it- sliced the carrots thin and they cooked perfectly in the time allowed. Great meal. Added a bit more pepper but other than that loved it as is. Gonna try and freeze it- thanks for great recipe

  17. Crystal

    Super delicious!! I’m not quite ready for soup yet since it is still in the upper 90’s-100’s here in Texas. However, as soon as the first “cool” front comes through I will be making this soup. Thanks for the great recipe!!

  18. Mariah @ Mariah's Pleasing Plates

    Aw your daughter is adorable! I just know I am gonna cry my eyes out when my daughter goes to school…luckily we have a few more years to go 😉
    This soup is total comfort food. Yum! Pinning!

  19. Bonni

    Looks good. I might add the spinach and tortellini to a roasted garlic soup I make in the wintertime. Thanks for the idea and your “little one” is a cutie pie.

  20. 10 am is absolutely not too early in occasions like this one. I couldn’t believe it either when BOTH my kids couldn’t care less about me on their respective first days of preschool. Buaaaaaaaahhhh!!!

    Great first soup after 9 months break 🙂 Looks absolutely gorgeous. Almost as gorgeous as your princess.
