Tortellini Soup

This Easy Tortellini Soup recipe uses a jar of spaghetti sauce and a package of refrigerated tortellini to make a super quick and tasty tomato-based soup. Add in some frozen mixed vegetables, chicken broth, and plenty of seasonings and you have a hot, comforting meal on the table in just over 20 minutes.

Quick and easy Tortellini Soup

There’s something inherently fun about the shape of tortellini and who doesn’t love a cheese filling?

To make this meal vegetarian use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth. For the spaghetti sauce, I like to use Prego or Ragu since they are inexpensive and frequently on sale. But you can use any brand.

Be sure not to overcook the tortellini. You actually want to undercook them some, especially if you are not eating the soup right away. They will continue to cook as the soup sits.

  1. Soup season is my favorite! This tortellini soup looks so good! I love how easy it is too with the spaghetti sauce and chicken broth! It sounds fabulous!

  2. It has been freezing here lately, and by freezing I mean 70 degrees but it is cold me to! All I’ve wanted to do is curl up with a big bowl of soup and sit until a blanket. This soup looks perfect! I love that it is packed with so much goodness so it is probably really filling too!
