It’s hard to improve on the deliciousness that is chicken noodle soup, but adding tortellini to the mix might do it!  Try it today with this easy recipe.


  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups chopped celery
  • 2 cups chopped carrots
  • 1 chopped sweet onion
  • 10 cups chicken broth (Imagine or Pacific brand)
  • 2 9-ounce packages tortellini
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley, plus extra for garnish (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • Freshly grated parmesan cheese (optional)


  1. Melt butter in large saucepan over medium high heat. Add vegetables and cook for 10 minutes, stirring now and then.
  2. Add broth and heat to boiling. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10 more minutes and then add tortellini.  Cook for another 5 minutes or until tortellini is tender.
  3. Add parsley and spices and simmer 5 minutes more. Ladle into dishes and garnish with cheese and more parsley and serve at once.


Fresh Tortellini: You can find this in the dairy section of your supermarket.  We like the cheese version, but they come stuffed with all kinds of different ingredients so feel free to experiment!

Garnishes: Sometimes we add a little parsley and/or we sprinkle some Parmesan cheese on top and sometimes we don’t.  Both ways are delicious!
