Once you try this restaurant-quality tortellini soup, it will become an instant addition to your go-to recipes! It is so delicious and a perfect new way to eat tortellini! This soup is easily customizable: if you want to add more protein, feel free to add sausage, chicken, beef, tofu, or any other protein. You can also add beans like white or cannellini beans, even chickpeas would be a great addition. You can add bell peppers, zucchini, kale or any of your other favorite vegetables. Feel free to use gluten-free or vegan tortellini pasta, coconut milk instead of dairy milk, and vegetable stock to meet your dietary preferences! It is a great soup to make for meal prep, especially during the colder seasons, as it is good in the fridge for up to a week, and you can use fresh or frozen ingredients. While it may seem intimidating at first glance, the most difficult part of this recipe is just waiting for everything to cook for the set amount of time! If you like your food on the spicy side, add a teaspoon or two of chili powder. This soup is a family-favorite, and once you try this, your family will be asking you to make it over and over again!
