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!!

  1. Tried this recipe tonight for my tortellini loving daughter… we all LOVED it!! Thank you so much for sharing! It was perfect for the crock pot, just held out the tortellini and spinach until we were closer to eating. Thanks again!

  2. Tonight will be my third time making this soup. Everyone that has tried it just loves it. Quick, easy and delicious! I even use low sodium broth and tomatoes, and half the cream, and it’s STILL wonderful!

  3. I’ve made this soup several times and it never fails! It’s nothing short of outstanding Using the exact recipe but I have changed it up by using sundried tomatoes zucchini and mushrooms. When I didn’t have very cream I used thinned cream cheese!o I use dry and reconstituted pesto tortellini.

  4. This soup was delicious. I made as is except for adding more garlic. I used a rotisserie chicken as mentioned in one of the other posts. I also used frozen pasta, which turned out great. So my pasta wouldn’t absorb all the liquid, I put it in a bowl and poured some mildly salted hot water over it and let it sit. Then added it afterwards.

      1. Yum! Made some of this for the kids to reheat while me and the hubby were on a much needed vacation to New York. (They stayed alone but my oldest is turning 17 in September and has his drivers license) of course I had to sneak a taste! And all I have to say is delicious! The kids told me that it reheated fabulously. Great meal thanks for sharing Alyssa

  5. I make this with a pound of ground italian sausage instead of chicken and cream cheese instead of heavy cream. My whole family LOVES it!!!! Even my picky eater that hates veggies!

  6. OmgOODNESS!!!
    The pot is empty, the dishes are empty we totally LOVED IT!!!
    I didn’t do the beans because I didn’t have any
    And I added just a sprinkling of red pepper flakes

      Foolproof! I always make this comforting soup on rainy days. I’ve made it for guests and I have always been asked for the recipe shortly after. We are vegetarian and omit the chicken and substitute the chicken broth with vegetable broth. Nothing short of an outstanding recipe.

  7. Should the can of tomatoes be drained or undrained? I run into this issue all the time with recipes that call for canned ingredients. I don’t want to mess it up. :-/

      Because I am lactose intolerant, I use lactose free milk instead of the cream and it is fantastic! It might be richer with cream but we love it without!

  8. Was looking for another way to use the tortellini in my fridge and always thought a soup sounded good. Wow! Just made it tonight for dinner and what a hit! Sooo yummy!!!

  9. I followed directions to a T and it was such a strange pink color! How do I fix that?? Still a delicious soup just an unappealing color.

  10. So good, and healthy for my family! I love how EASY it was to make!
    I used cheese and spinach filled tortellini and I also used the crock pot for my chicken, so once I got home from work I just had to add it all together!

  11. I want to make this soup in my crockpot. Should I add all the ingredients. At the beginning? (Parm cheese, cream, spinach) or should I wait until I add tortellini-closer to the end of cooking time?

  12. Alysa i just wanted to let you know that the Tuscanvgarlic chicken soup is the best I’ve had. I love your recipes. They are always so original and tasty. Keep them coming.

    1. That is great to hear! Thank you so much for sharing! I am so glad that you enjoyed it and it tasted so good! Thank you so much for letting me know and following along with me! XOXO

  13. Just made this tonight for supper and it was delicious! Couple of tweaks for me…I erroneously bought crushed tomaotoes instead of diced and I decided to just roll with them since that’s what I had. I used about 1/2 the can and it worked out fine. I also used 1/2 package of frozen spinach and finally I added a good heaping table spoon of garlic and herb cream cheese and that really added another level of richness and creaminess. Thanks for such a great recipe!

  14. Oh man, I love the idea of this soup. But every time I’ve made it I always have to double the broth! 4 cups is just not enough for the amount of other things going in the soup. Has anyone else ran into this?

    1. I have actually had this happen once, and realized I accidentally bought a bigger pack then recommended in the recipe of the tortellini so it absorbs way more of my broth. Was still delicious but was more like a creamy pasta. I would just make sure you’re using the recommended size of tortellini for the recipe.

  15. Hi I am always looking for recipes to make when camping that use ingredients the do not require a lot of refrigerated items. I was thinking of substituting evaporated milk for the cream, using canned chicken and using the dried version of tortellini. What do you think?

  16. Hi…I came across the recipe for the Creamy Tuscan tortellini soup. It looks great. I have a problem and maybe you can help. It will not print properly.

    1. I have tried printing it and it is working for me. Have you tried it lately?! I hope you are able to get it to print. You can also copy/paste it into a word document and print it from there.

  17. Absolutely delicious. I made this with my ten year-old son and we ate every bite! Looking forward to trying some of your other recipes.

  18. Made the Creamy Tuscan Garlic Tortellini soup today.. Can’t stop eating it. Delicious. Brought a big bowl to my daughters to share. It’s a keeper. Thank you for sharing.

  19. I love this soup and have made it several times. I did omit the chicken for a vegetarian soup. I have a question, can this soup be frozen? If so, how long would it be good for in the freezer? Thanks for a new fav recipe!

  20. Parmesan sunk right to the bottom even though I added it slowly and stirred constantly. When I make it again, which is a for sure thing, I’ll add Parmesan as a topping once the soup is in the bowl! Easy and delicious recipe, thanks!

  21. Made this for dinner tonight, had everything already on hand except the beans and I used Tuscan seasoning instead of Italian. It’s a definite keeper! Perfect meal for my husband and I while snowed in this week.

  22. I love this soup! Always get a craving for it, it’s so easy to put together and it tastes so good. I like to let the broth dimmer on the stove before adding the spinach and tortellini. One of my favorites!

  23. Have made the Tuscan Tortellini Soup twice and my husband and I loved it. The ingredients are things that we always have on hand and it’s so easy, the only change was using “Tuscan Seasoning” in place of “Italian Seasoning” and hubby added a little red pepper to his. This soup has been added to our rotation of favorites and I shared your link with my daughter’s.

  24. Made this soup for the first time. I used 2 chicken breasts and used the broth in the soup.
    Soup turned out delicious. Husband loved it!

  25. This soup is amazing! I used hot italian sausage instead of chicken and added diced zucchini as well. It’s a perfect dinner on a cold, snowy night. Easy and delicious! Thank you so much!

  26. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS SOUP!! Thank you so much for sharing!! I followed this recipe exactly the whole way through and doubled the recipe to have extra to freeze (one small exception, I used sweet sausage instead of chicken since I had it on hand, it came out AMAZING. I browned the sausage in a pan with EVOO to about 97% cooked, before having it cook a bit in the soup (which I think put it in at the end and let it simmer for 10-15 mins). It was perfect! My husband and I devoured more than we should have 🙂 Thanks again

  27. Made this last night. OMG! Delicious! The only thing I did differently was to add a parmesan cheese rind to the soup, removed it before serving, and had grated parmesan available to add if my guests chose.

  28. 5 stars
    This is one of the few things all five of my kids will eat and actually request that I fix. I have fixed this several times when I’ve having company. This is an excellent recipe!!

  29. 5 stars
    Such a winning recipe! EVERYONE loves it. Few variations: sometimes I add more veggies like carrots and celery. I also add sweet Italian chicken sausage for even more flavor!

  30. One great recipe….so full of wonderful flavors. It is a new favorite for so many reasons. I switched out the spinach for arugula and loved that interesting change.

  31. 5 stars
    I made this and it was one of the best soups I have ever eaten! I had Italian sausage links, so I cooked them and sliced into bite size pieces rather than the chicken, but either would be wonderful, it’s a definite keeper, thanks so much for something new and delicious, I am a new fan?

  32. 5 stars
    The beat! Have made this several times for company and it always gets rave reviews. Wouldn’t change a thing.
