Ingredients Needed For Creamy Chicken Tortellini Soup

Tortellini– You can find tortellini in the refrigerated section of your grocery store, near the cheese section generally.

Chicken– I like to use shredded rotisserie chicken to cut prep time.

Chicken Broth– Find chicken broth in the soup section of your grocery store. This is the base of many soup recipes.

Fresh Vegetables– Chopped carrots, onion and celery. Many times you can find these vegetables pre-chopped in the produce section of your grocery store. I add chopped fresh parsley too.

Bacon– The bacon adds great flavor to this soup. Using fully cooked bacon that you crisp up in the microwave also saves lots of prep time.

Heavy Cream– The heavy cream adds the “creamy” part of the soup. Find in the milk section of your grocery store.

Parmesan Cheese– I like to add a little Parmesan Cheese to this soup for another layer of flavor. Find fresh grated Parmesan Cheese in the cheese section of your grocery store.

Start the recipe by heating oil in a large cast iron pot and saute the onions.

How Long Do I Cook Tortellini?

The fresh tortellini cooks for about 10 minutes in the soup, should be fork tender. Careful to not overcook as the tortellini will start to fall apart. Reduct heat to low immediately after. I even remove the soup from the heat for a few minutes.
