Tuscan Tortellini Soup

I am SO team tortellini.

Back in the day we used to eat our tortellini the same way every time: tossed in pesto and sprinkled with parmesan cheese.

It’s beyond basic but when your entire family loves pesto tortellini it quickly becomes a habit. My 5-year-old has deemed the gorgeous green pasta “Turtleini” and requests it on a weekly basis.

While we still pesto it up on the regular, I’ve also become enamored with serving it up in Tortellini Pasta Salad and in our favorite pasta-studded soups. Both dishes are super simple and perfect for busy weeknights and weekend potlucks.

There’s something about using the tortellini in place of regular noodles just makes it extra special.

Fancy even.

“Hey everyone!!! Come see how good my soup looks!”

Tuscan Tortellini Soup with Spinach and White Beans

This Tuscan Tortellini Soup is my latest tortellini creation and HOLY COW it’s delicious!

Usually when I’m testing a big batch of soup I’ll save a bowl or two for my friends to taste test. No sharing happened here and I’m sure they’re going to kick me when they see this post!

I can’t help it! It was so good Paul and I devoured it all in two days flat.

It’s the perfect mix of light and creamy, studded with tender veggies and cheesy tortellini… gah! I could eat bowl after bowl of this luscious soup and never tire of it.

The combination of garlic, olive oil, fire-roasted tomatoes, creamy white beans, and herb-y Italian seasoning, gives it a flavorful Tuscan vibe that I just can’t get enough of!

serving suggestions

This is soup amazing all on its own, but if you’re looking to round out the meal a bit, there are some tasty options!

You can serve the soup with rolls or a crusty baguette, or even serve up my Restaurant-Style Olive Oil and Herb Bread Dip as an appetizer!

Sandwich wise, some Spinach and Tomato Grilled Cheese Pitas or grilled cheese sandwiches would be phenomenal dunked in the soup or served on the side.

For a salad option, a simple green salad with Easy Homemade Greek Dressing would be amazing as would a bowl of my Kale Caesar Salad.

Ingredients

  • 1 medium onion
  • 4 carrots
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1-2 TBSP olive oil
  • 1 TBSP Italian seasoning blend Mrs. Dash is my favorite
  • 1/2-1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2-3 TBSP butter
  • 3 TBSP flour
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 14.5 oz canned fire roasted tomatoes
  • 15.5 oz can white beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 9 oz refrigerated cheese tortellini
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cups chopped spinach

TASTY TOPPINGS

  • grated parmesan cheese
  • red pepper flakes
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • fresh chopped basil

Instructions

  1. Peel and finely dice your carrots and onion. Peel 4 cloves of fresh garlic and finely mince.

  2. Heat 1-2 TBSP oil in a large pot or dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion and carrots and. Sauté until tender, approx. 5-6 minutes, adding garlic towards the very end to prevent over-browning. Season with Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.

  3. Next add 2-3 TBSP butter and, once melted, whisk in flour and cook for an additional minute or two, stirring often. This will give the soup a little extra thickness but can 100% be skipped if desired.

  4. Add broth, fire-roasted tomatoes, white beans.

  5. Bring soup to a rolling boil, then reduce heat to low/simmer to allow the flavors to mingle and the carrots/onion to fully soften. Cover and simmer 5-10 minutes.


  6. Once the veggies have reached your ideal tenderness, bring the soup back up to a medium simmer and add your fresh tortellini and heavy cream. Allow the tortellini to simmer approx. 5 minutes until tortellini is tender and the cream has thickened.

  7. Lastly chop your spinach and stir into the hot soup to wilt the greens. If desired you can add an extra cup of broth. Give it a taste and add any extra seasoning your heart desires plus your favorite toppings (grated parm and fresh basil for me!). Dive in while it's hot!

Recipe Notes

The leftover soup is AWESOME and will keep a few days in the refrigerator. Simply reheat via microwave (it's a great grab and go work lunch!) or in a small pot on the stovetop.

swaps and such

I am 100% head over heels for the white beans in this recipe, but they can be skipped if needed.

This scrumptious soup is vegetarian, but if you’re feeding a hungry T-Rex feel free to add chicken or sausage.

No heavy cream? Half and half will work (but result in a thinner soup) and this soup can even be made without the cream/milk if desired!

I made a light roux out of flour and butter to add a little extra thickness to this tortellini soup but that can also be skipped for a brothier bowl-o-soup.
