On a cold and blustery winter night, it's good to have a bowl of creamy and flavorful soup to calm the savage beasts. And if you are a fan of Olive Garden's Chicken Gnocchi Soup, you are going to LOVE this Creamy Chicken Tortellini Soup! Saucy and loaded with tender chicken and pillowy cheese-filled tortellini, this will be your new favorite soup!
I've made this recipe with both fresh gnocchi and fresh three or four cheese tortellini, and hands-down, everyone LOVES the fresh cheese tortellini the best. The smooth and delicate cheese filling is just perfect in this flavorful herb-infused creamy chicken broth.
This recipe makes a BIG pot of soup, but you'll be glad. Enough for dinner, but also enough for some lunches. And you'll need to tuck it away in a secret spot if you hope to score some at the end of the day - every time I make this is just disappears!
We may look back at the winter of 2018 as the winter that never ends. But as long as you have some hearty and wonderful soup to tide you over, no one is complaining!
I love that I can sneak so many vegetables into this too. Carrots, spinach, onions, celery...just load 'em up with healthy stuff every chance you get! If you use rotisserie chicken, this is even quick enough to cook for a fast family dinner. In a pinch, you could also substitute frozen carrots in place of cutting up matchstick carrots.
So comforting, so hearty, so flavorful - you are going to love this one! Perfect with a big chunk of dunkable crusty bread.
