This hearty and comforting Tortellini soup is perfect for a cold day.
TORTELLINI SOUP WITH VEGGIES
We have fallen in love with this easy Tortellini soup recipe. When I first saw it posted on Mel’s Kitchen Cafe , I figured it would be a good one! I’ve since altered it in a few ways to make it more kid-friendly for my family, but guys, it’s amazing.
This soup is on regular repeat at our house during Fall and Winter and I’m confident you’ll love it, too!
HOW TO MAKE TORTELLINI SOUP
Making this soup is easy, but you’ll need to plan about 40 minutes start to finish to prepare. Don’t worry though, most of that time is for simmering, so you won’t need to be at the stove that long!
WHAT VEGETABLES TO USE IN THE TORTELLINI SOUP
We usually put diced carrots, small chopped zucchini, and peas in the soup. But feel free to add or take out what you don’t like!
A NOTE ABOUT THE SAUSAGE
We aren’t huge meat eaters at our house, but the Italian sausage in this recipe really adds a great flavor! You could definitely add more or less meat, but at least a little will add some great flavor!
If you don’t have sausage on hand, you can still make this soup without it.
SERVE THIS SOUP WITH:

You can omit the sausage, but it will lack some flavor.
I usually don’t have apple cider. You can definitely leave it out. If you do have it, it will add an extra dimension of flavor.
