Tortellini soup is one of our go-to quickie weeknight dinners. It takes about 15 minutes from the time I crack open the fridge with that puzzled, “what can I make” look on my face to setting bowls on the table. And now that my dishwasher is broken, any meal I can make that doesn’t leave a crusty fried-on, baked-on, burned-on mess is a plus!

Quick Chicken Tortellini Soup

A quick, simple dinner perfect for a weeknight.


  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 9oz package of fresh chicken and cheese tortellini
  • 2 cups baby arugula and spinach*
  • 1 roma tomato, seeded and chopped
  • Parmesan shavings, for serving


*Half a bag of frozen peas is an excellent substitute.
  1. Heat chicken broth over medium-high heat.
  2. Add tortellini to the hot broth. Cook until heated through (see package directions).
  3. Divide greens between 4 bowls.
  4. Ladle soup over the greens and top with chopped tomato and Parmesan.


Yields: 4 servings

Looks awesome- I love tortellini soup, and it’s the ONLY thing my bf makes- of course for him it’s boiling broth and adding frozen tortelli!
