WHAT IS CHICKEN TORTELLINI SOUP
The reason I call this tortellini soup the best, is because it is! Yes, I know it’s not traditional to put asparagus and kale in this type of soup. And i’m aware that most of these types of recipes call for carrots.
But for me I much prefer these veggies!! Don’t you?
You can also replace the kale with spinach if desired. What I like most about making this soup is that it can be enjoyed over a few days. Because it keeps very well in the fridge and even tastes better the second day!
CAN YOU FREEZE CHICKEN TORTELLINI SOUP
Yes, up to three months!
I have always loved chicken noodle soup, however it is nice to try different versions of it now and again, right?
This soup is allot like Chicken Noodle soup, but we are omitting the noodles and carrots and uses tortellini along with kale and asparagus instead.
It’s pretty similar to allot of those other Chicken Tortellini soup recipes, however mine uses more vegetables and is more on the healthy side.
What makes the soup creamy is the mixture of the chicken stock, cream and parmesan cheese. Some recipes will have you using all cream and of course that will make it ultra creamy. However for this soup I wanted it to be lower in fat and also stay true to a chicken noodle type soup base.
Such a fantastic soup to have simmering on the stovetop when your not feeling so great or heck even when you are.
I like to use better than bouillon chicken stock when making most of my soups. So I will mix just the right amount of that with water for the stock.
Plus using mostly stock vs cream really helps to make this soup super creamy without all the extra fat. Of course you can use whatever chicken stock you have on hand, just be sure it is not laddled with to much salt.
Also, you will want to allow the asparagus to simmer for a least 15 minutes along with the chicken to ensure both are super tender prior to adding the tortellini and kale.
If you are planning to enjoy this soup over a couple of days, then you will want to add one more cup of chicken stock as well, since the tortellini tends to soak it up overnight.
I really like to use “Herb Chicken Tortellini” for this recipe. However you can use whatever brand you like most. Also if you want a little heat to this soup then I would recommend adding in a pinch of red pepper flakes.
Also keep in mind, as with all my recipes.
If you want to make more or less of this soup, simple adjust the serving size in the ingredients section above and the servings will automatically adjust for you. This soup can store in the fridge for up to 3 days and or freeze for up to 3 months.
