Our lives have been revolving around cross country and lacrosse at our house.  They both have practice twice during the week and then we have games all day on Saturday.  Yesterday was our last game and I feel so much more freedom!  Having kids involved in busy sports can be tough.  This is why I love to still have a hearty meal for my family and soup is the perfect thing!

Since I am obsessed with all things tuscan garlic…  (seriously you have got to try this Creamy Tuscan Garlic Chicken), I knew that a soup version of this popular dish had to be made.

This soup you guys.  Turned out INCREDIBLE!!

This became an instant favorite in our house.  And quite honestly one of the best soups that I have ever had!  I know that your family will love it too!

    hey girl this looks so divine! Yummy!

  2. Hi! Is the tortellini in the “fresh” section of the pasta aisle?
    Also, are the filled with anything…meat or cheese? If so, which
    filling do you recommend?
    Thanks so much!

    • I had the same question, but it says refrigerated aisle. I have never purchased Tortellini before so I had no idea which one to buy. Since the recipe called for chicken I decided to get the tortellini with cheese as opposed to the one with sausage.

    • Yes it will be in the fresh section.

  3. Thanks for sharing your recipe! I purchased the ingredients and I’m planning on making it today! Yahoo! I was thinking of making this in the crockpot. Ever tried that by chance? My thoughts are to cook and shred the chicken separately and add it at the end along with the tortellini. I usually purchase frozen tortellini so I would just boil that separately as well. Thoughts? Recommendations?

  4. Can I freeze this

  5. Delicous to eat and easy to make! I have made it twice, using my own leftover roasted chicken. The first time I followed the recipe closely. The second time I added more garlic, diced up a celery stalk and sautéed it with the onion. Also, added extra butter and a heaping TBL of flour after the onions softened, cooked for one minute, then added the liquids. This thickened the soup a bit more. Also, I used a bag of baby spinach instead of curly spinach. Lastly, I used roasted tomato and mozzarella refrigerated tortellini for extra flavor. This no-fuss soup gets five stars from my family.

  6. Made this last week was absolutely delicious!

  7. I made this Monday night and it was delicious! I was going to substitute a little milk for the heavy cream, but I actually forgot to add it at all, and it was still great! The family loved it!

  8. This is excellent! I cooked chicken thighs and then added the juice that came from the thighs to the dish instead of boxed chicken stock….amazing

  9. Making this for the first time and the house smells delightful. It looks delicious and I stored the pot and tasted the spoon and my oh my. Yummie, yum yum!

  10. This sounds just delicious! I only wish you could include the nutritional information for the recipe. All of us Weight Watcher members would really appreciate it.

  11. made this for my parents tonight and it was delish! so easy and SO good! everyone got seconds!

  12. can you replace white beans? if yes whit what ? It looks sooo good but i don’T like beans…

  13. Made this soup last night & it was a big hit! Thank you for the super delicious recipe. It was very quick to prepare = great for a weeknight. 🙂

  14. Very tasty and comforting soup. I used half and half and did not add the 1 teaspoon salt, and it was still delicious. I also used another’s suggestion to add 1 heaping tablespoon flour as a thickener since my husband prefers thicker soups. I ended up dissolving it in a little water and adding it that way, but adding the flour at the beginning with the softened onions is a great way to go!

  15. This soup is amazing! I didn’t have heavy cream so I used half of an 8oz.brick of softened cream cheese. Best soup EVER!

  16. Wow! Great recipe! SUPER delicious, easy, and quick to make! What I love about soup recipes like this is you can really play around with ingredients, it doesn’t need to be EXACT and you can spice it up as you see fit. I used Del Monte Zesty Chili Style Diced Tomatoes instead of regular. I got Costco’s Kirkland Signature Five Cheese Tortelloni with Parmigiano Reggiano in their refrigerated section ($9.99 for 2 24oz packages-I froze the other)and I used the entire 24oz package. 9 oz (just over 1 cup) didn’t seem like nearly enough for this amount of soup. I also decided that instead of regular grated Parmesan cheese I would use Krafts three cheese blend of grated Parmesan, Romano, & Asiago cheeses. Lastly, I topped the the soup with some shredded Parmesan cheese. It was super delicious! My husband had a great thought of throwing some lobster tails in it as well!

  17. This is such a flavorful recipe. It has quickly become my favorite soup. If you’re looking for something tasty, quick and easy, this is the recipe for you!

  18. The soup was a hit with my family! My son and daughter-in-law are vegetarians so I left out the chicken. I didn’t miss it at all.

  19. Do you use frozen spinach?

  20. This sounds so delicious. Can’t wait to make it. Thanks for the awesome recipe.

  21. So delicious!! Even better the next day, reheated. I used fresh spinach and chopped it. Definitely a keeper!! Thanks for sharing!

  22. So GOOD!!! I was looking for a new soup recipe to feed a crowd at a meeting….this is it!!! Thank-you for sharing.

  23. I made this soup tonight and was skeptical as I was making it but it turned out delicious!!. I added more garlic and spinach and chicken. I can’t stress enough how some people’s recipes are horrible but this one gets a five star in my eyes. Thank you so much for sharing.

  24. Oh my stars! Fantastic dinner! I doubled the recipe, good thing as it was devoured.
    We are keeping this recipe! Thank you for sharing! Yummilicious!

    I really liked this recipe and so did my husband. I also added some flour to the onions and garlic to help thicken it up as others had suggested. I also added some extra spinach and tortellini and it worked really well. The only thing that I didn’t like was the amount of italian seasoning. I thought a tablespoon was just too much, I’ll be adjusting that for the next time.

  26. I made this tonight and it came out delicious. I eyeballed some ingredients like the seasoning/spinach and I used a little over a lb of chicken that I made in the crockpot earlier. I’m sure you could add a bigger package of tortellini, but it came out great with a 9 oz package (I used buitoni – spinach with cheese). Not difficult to make and didn’t take too much prep or a super long list of ingredients which I loved. Yum!

  27. This is so yummy and so easy!!!!! I used crushed tomatoes instead of diced to appease the hubby, but everything else is perfect.

  28. I made this last night and it was fantastic! I doubled the tortellini and am currently eating the leftovers, which are also delicious. Thank you!

  29. Do you think I could substitute italian sausages instead of chicken? And use frozen cheese tortollini that I already have? I would love to make this but, was curious…

  30. I’ve made this twice so far and I’m making it again tonight. My family loves it, and it’s very easy to make. Great recipe. Thanks.
