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!!

      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!

  1. 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. :-/

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

      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

  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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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!

  7. 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!

  8. We made this soup a few nights ago and was amazing! I used home made broth and skipped the chicken with mushroom tortellini from aldi. This will definitely be on our regular rotation. Thanks for a fantastic soup recipe!

  9. Tried the Tuscan tortellini soup tonight. My heavy cream had expired, so I used a little milk and cream cheese. I also used some Italian sausage(chicken, fully cooked) links that I sliced into 1/4 inch slices. My husband and son are “hearty” eaters and they loved this meal!!! Thanks for sharing!

  10. I made this soup last night on a rainy winter night and it was amazing! Served it with some crunchy warm bread. I did add a little bit of red chili flake because I like a little spice.

  11. I love everything about this soup! I added twice as many tortellini and used 3 cheese tortellini. I also sauteed up about a cup of sliced mushrooms with the onion and garlic. Yummm

  12. This soup is delicious and easy and fast to prepare. I saw that some who reviewed the recipe felt they needed to add flour to thicken the soup. I always prefer thick soups as opposed to brothy soups, so it was difficult to decide to try the recipe as-is the first time, OR follow others’ suggestions to add a little flour. I decided to make the recipe as written… and I felt it didn’t need the flour to thicken it. I thought it was a perfectly thick soup. As long as you simmer the soup like it says in the recipe, I think enough moisture evaporates out. The only thing I wanted more of was spinach, so I added some more of that. This is a keeper. Thanks for a great recipe!

  13. Made this last night and it was pretty tasty. The only beans Trader Joe’s had were great northern beans, and they were a little too dense for this soup – I think next time I would leave out the beans and add a few extra veggies instead.
