CHICKEN TORTELLINI ALFREDO SOUP — This hearty soup features cheese tortellini, chicken and fresh spinach. It’s a heartwarming meal that’s ready in 20 minutes!
There’s nothing I love more than a quick and easy soup recipe, and this Chicken Tortellini Alfredo Soup totally fits the bill.
It’s loaded with things my family loves (well, I guess they don’t love spinach, but they’ll happily eat it in this soup), and I can have it on the table in about 20 minutes!
The secret to getting this meal on the table so quickly is refrigerated tortellini, jarred Alfredo sauce, and a supermarket rotisserie chicken. Of course, you could easily adapt this to make a totally from-scratch version.
But honestly, there are nights I just don’t have time for that, and this is the kind of recipe that comes to the rescue.
Although the recipe calls for cheese tortellini, any variety would work well. And the packaged refrigerated ravioli would be a great substitution for the tortellini.
You could also add more veggies to up the nutritional value. Shredded carrots and sliced mushrooms are both great choices.
With some crusty bread and a green salad, you’ll have a complete meal that the whole family will love. Even my pickiest eaters devour this soup–including the spinach!
You’ll definitely want to tuck this recipe away in your file for those hectic week nights when you need to get dinner ready in a hurry.
