There’s something inherently fun about the shape of tortellini and who doesn’t love a cheese filling?

Make It Vegetarian

To make this meal vegetarian use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth. For the spaghetti sauce, I like to use Prego or Ragu since they are inexpensive and frequently on sale. But you can use any brand.

Don’t Overcook The Tortellini

Be sure not to overcook the tortellini. You actually want to undercook them some, especially if you are not eating the soup right away. They will continue to cook as the soup sits.

Easy Tortellini Soup is simple, comforting, and delicious. Sprinkle some fresh Parmesan cheese on top and serve with some crusty bread.

What Is The Best Bread To Serve With Tortellini Soup?

Garlic Bread or Bruschetta go great with any soup with pasta in it. It also goes great with Air Fryer Cheesy Crescent Rolls or Bacon Stuffed Cheesy Garlic Rolls. A green salad with Creamy Parmesan Dressing is another great addition.

Make It Spicy

This soup already has a little spiciness from the addition of 1/2 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes. Serve with hot sauce if you want it spicier. Reduce the crushed red pepper flakes to 1/4 teaspoon if you don’t want it spicy.

Hot To Store Easy Tortellini Soup

This soup is best eaten the day it is made but can be kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a few days. The tortellini will soak up a lot of the liquid overtime.
