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!!

    I’ve made this a bazillion times. With spicy sausage meat, ground chicken … leftover whole chicken… it’s an incredibly delicious filling easy and versatile recipe. I’ve passed it on to countless people. Trust me – this will be in your rotation for years to come. If you use ground meat – I sauté onions, then add meat and seasonings and brown. Then follow the rest of the directions.

    Ohhhhhh my goodness ya all !! This soup was a hit! Ya gotta try it…like as in today-try-it! lol 🙂
    Looovveed the combination of all the flavors! I added a hearty homemade chicken stock/broth to thicken and enhance a more richer flavor to the store bought chicken broth. I couldn’t taste the sausage so next time I will definately try a spicy sausage to add some zip. Other than those personal minor changes, this soup is thee bomb!!!!!!!

  3. I love this soup & we’ve made it many times. Thank you!!
    Quick question though, when I add the cream, sometimes it separates & makes the soup look weird & uneven. I’ve checked and the cream isn’t expired.
    Do you know how to solve that?
    It still tastes good but looks unappealing.

    1. Yes, these do really well frozen. It is best to freeze them on cookie sheets then you can add the frozen cookies in bags and back in the freezer so that they don’t stick together.

    I’ve made this so many times! Hands down my favourite comfort meal everyone comes running when the smell it cooking in the kitchen. Instead of chicken though I add 4 hot Italian sausages. Such a yummy soup! ☺️

    Love, love, love this recipe! One of my favorite soups to make. I’ve always followed the recipe exactly but may sub sausage for chicken next time, as others have suggested. Curious- can this recipe be frozen, if the tortellini is left out?

    1. Yes, this will work in the slow cooker. Add all the ingredients except the tortellini. Add the noodles right before you are ready to serve and let cook for about 10 minutes or until they are softened and warm.

    This is so good. It’s the second time I’ve made it and we all love it. This time i added little meatballs too which were delicious. This is a very hearty soup, definitely 5 stars!

    This soup is now my husband staple for cold weather cooking. He is not much a soup person but loves this. Our family friends and everyone it’s to delicious to not share with the world.

    Very yummy and easy to make. Used two boneless chicken breasts. Cooked them in a little EVOL and S&P. Shredded once cooled. Only thing missing was fresh crusty bread. Definitely a make again.

    Followed the recipe exactly and my husband and I enjoyed this soup. This is definitely filling and will be routinely made in the winter months. Thanks for your recipe!

    Okay, this is wonderfully delicious, without a doubt. Subtle, flavorful, elegant, and can’t wait to see how the flavors meld overnight !

    I had beer can chicken on the grill leftover and it all went in….maybe two or three times as much and added more grated Parmesan at serving.

    Served with french bread. Mwah ❣️

    This is a great and easy soup to fix. Very tasty. Served with homemade Italian bread. Yummy! I do want to mention the timing on this soup is not correct (from start to finish). Total time to prepare and serve is minimum of 35 minutes. This includes chopping the onion and garlic and letting it nicely sauté to a buttery transparent. The tortellini takes a few minutes to cook at a simmer (best to simmer and not boil when using cream). I did not read through the reviews and others may have noted this. It’s still a super fast soup to fix and very suitable for guests.

    Love this soup – so flavorful! Sometimes I make the broth from leftover rotisserie with some spices and it is very flavorful. This whole family loves it!

    The only weird thing is that is looks pink when done? I even tried draining the tomatoes. We omit the beans as my family doesn’t like them but that is the only modification. Any ideas why it looks that way? Thanks!

    1. I just made this for the first time today and mine was pink too! I was kind of disappointed because the picture looks so yummy. It tasted okay but it was kinda weird because of the pink broth.

    I love soup! My wife turned her nose up when I told her what I was making. Ha! The Chef got the last laugh. Great soup everyone stuffed themselves. Super fast and really good all around. Used grilled boneless chicken and some pieces were a little tough after second cooking. The rotisserie chicken or a baked on the bone chicken would be better. Thanks for the recipe.

  16. Made last night , with2 bites DH said “it’s a keeper “!! No spinach so used broccoli; used Italian sausage, thanks for recipe!!yummmmmmy!!!
