Crockpot Tortellini Soup Ingredients

  • cooked chicken
  • chicken stock
  • carrot
  • onion
  • celery
  • garlic
  • cheese tortellini
  • spinach
  • spices

I like to use a rotisserie chicken for this but feel free to use whatever chicken you have. Just make sure it is fully cooked.

Make sure to use fresh spinach. The cooked or frozen spinach doesn’t have the right texture.

How to make chicken tortellini soup

STEP ONE: In the crock pot, place the onion, carrots, celery, garlic, chicken, broth, and spices. Cook on low 4-6 hours or on high 2-3 hours.

STEP TWO: In the last 30 minutes, shred the chicken if desired, and add the tortellini. 15 minutes before serving, add the spinach. Stir to combine.

STEP THREE: Cook for 5-10 minutes more. Serve warm, garnish with parsley and a squeeze of lemon juice.

What goes well with tortellini soup?

I like to eat mine with a heel of crusty French bread, but it pairs nicely with a big salad!

How many calories are in a bowl of creamy tortellini soup?

Because this soup is so indulgent and hearty, you might think it is high in calories. But it’s not!

With only XXX calories, it will fit into your healthy eating plan just fine! Serve it with a salad and some homemade dressing to round out the meal.

How long will slow cooker tortellini soup last?

You can keep this soup in the fridge for up to 4 days. The tortellini will start to get mushy after that.

If you plan on saving it for later, I would leave the cheese tortellini out and add it later.

I don’t recommend freezing the soup for the same reasons. The pasta and the spinach will not hold up well.

Can I make this on the stove top?

  1. Sauté the vegetables in a large pot with a few tablespoons of olive oil.
  2. Add the chicken, spices, and broth. Cook for 10 minutes on medium.
  3. Add the tortellini and spinach and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
  4. Serve as usual.

I make it on the stove top often and it turned out great every time!

Can I leave out the chicken and make this vegetarian?

Sure! To add more bulk to it, substitute the chicken for extra tomatoes and zucchini.

If you like, try a spinach and cheese stuffed tortellini.

Tips for No Leftover Soup

  • Prep the veggies beforehand and then just add them to to crock pot when ready to make the soup.
  • Try using rotisserie chicken for easier prep and more flavor.
  • Switch up your tortellini for mushroom or spinach and cheese.
  • Add zucchini or tomatoes for even more veggies!
  • Sprinkle in some red pepper flakes for a little kick.
  • Want an even creamier texture? Add a cup of heavy cream when you add the tortellini.
