This tortellini soup comes together in no time so it is perfect for a busy weeknight. It is definitely soup season where I am. We have had snow on the ground several times already. Warm satisfying soups are great for Fall and Winter.

What Type Of Tortellini To Use For Tortellini Soup
I prefer the refrigerated tortellini because it tastes fresher than the dried tortellini pasta. The dried tortellini filling has a gritty texture, in my opinion.
Spinach is my preferred tortellini filling, but, you can use your favorite.

Can You Freeze Tortellini Soup
Yes you can. . . JUST DON’T ADD THE TORTELLINI.
Make the soup according to the directions, except do not add tortellini. Freeze the soup. When thawed, reheat then cook the tortellini in the boiling soup. This will prevent mushy awful tortellini.
