Tips + FAQ

Tortellini and Tortelloni are so similar that it’s hard to tell the difference. Tortellini is about 2 grams smaller and are commonly used in soups and other broth based dishes. Whereas, the larger tortelloni are typically served in sauces.

Tortellini are filled with cheese, vegetables or meats. Tortelloni are typically filled with cheese or vegetables. In this soup we recommend using a cheese tortellini.

Easily add veggies to this soup. If you want to add broccoli florets or maybe even bite sized pieces of asparagus, I would suggest steaming them first then adding them to the soup when it has finished cooking.

Some other variation ideas include adding some spice with crushed red pepper flakes, add extra flavor with bacon bits, or use different pasta such as bow tie, penne, or egg noodles.

How to store? Store the soup in the fridge for 2-3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. Once the soup has cooled, divide it into individual serving sizes, or, if you have a lot left over, store it in one large container and save for another meal.

How to freeze? Freeze the soup after letting it cool completely and placing it in freezer safe bags. It is recommended that you don’t freeze the tortellinis because it doesn’t do well in the freezer. When ready to eat the leftovers let it thaw in the fridge and then rewarm it on the stove!

How to reheat? Reheat Chicken Alfredo Tortellini Soup low and slow, especially if the soup has been frozen. Stir frequently over low heat allowing the cream to incorporate into the soup. It may also help to add a little fresh cream as you are reheating the soup.
