Tuscan Tortellini Vegetable Soup


Today I finally gathered the courage to sit outside so my kids ride their bikes. It’s 35 degrees outside. It was entirely deceiving because it was completely sunny and there’s no longer any snow on the ground. I don’t mind the cold, as long as I’m inside. Inside with a warm bowl of steamy soup.

This soup is a combinations of a few of my favorites. It’s just like this Fresh Spinach Tomato and Garlic Tortellini Soup meets this Minestrone Soup. It’s hearty, it’s filling, it’s most entirely healthy (who says a little cheese ever hurt anyone? Definitely not me! It’s good for the soul) and your whole family will enjoy it! I know I didn’t have a problem finishing off two bowls of it. I would be happy if this were on my menu every week. What more could I ask for? Well this and a fresh loaf of crusty bread. Basically my idea of Heaven. I’m obsessed with cheese tortellini and fresh bread, I could live on the stuff.

Hearty tasty soup recipe loaded with cheesy tortellini, lots of fresh veggies and a garlicy broth.

Servings: 6
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes


  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped carrots (about 4)
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped yellow onion (1 medium)
  • 1 cup chopped celery (about 3 stalks)
  • 2 cups chopped green beans , about 1-inch pieces
  • 2 cups chopped zucchini (about 2 small)
  • 4 cloves garlic , minced
  • 3 (14.5 oz) cans low-sodium chicken broth or vegetable broth
  • 2 (14.5 oz) cans diced tomatoes (I used one regular and one petite diced)
  • 1 tsp each dried basil and rosemary , crushed
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper , to taste
  • 1 (9 oz) package refrigerated 3-cheese tortellini
  • 3 cups packed spinach
  • Shredded Romano or Parmesan cheese , for serving


  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add carrots, onion and celery and saute 3 minutes. Add green beans and saute 3 minutes longer. Add zucchini and garlic and saute 1 more minute. Pour in broth and tomatoes. Add basil, rosemary, thyme and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Bring to a gentle boil, then reduce heat to medium and allow to boil 8 minutes. Add tortellini and boil 5-7 minutes longer (or 2 minutes less than directions listed on package. If a more brothy soup is desired, then boil pasta separately from soup then add at the end). Stir in spinach and cook 2 minutes longer.
  3. Serve warm topped with Romano or Parmesan cheese.

  • Angela: I made this soup and it was great! I am going to try and make it a freezer meal for post-baby. July 19, 2018 at 4:38pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: I’m glad you enjoyed it Angela! Thanks for the great review. Congrats on the baby :)! July 20, 2018 at 3:07pm Reply

  • Lucy: It’s fantastic, delicious, awesome good!! I cheated and substituted some of the fresh vegetables for frozen… soup is still terrific. I made enough to fill several one-cup freezer containers making it really easy and time saving, to reach into the freezer and pull out fresh, delicious soup for lunches or dinners. Highly recommend this recipe! April 10, 2018 at 11:53am Reply

  • Jess: Delicious recipe!!! Thank you for sharing! To include protein, I added Nature’s Promise chicken sausage. I also didn’t use the string beans out of preference. Other than that, I followed the recipe and both my husband and I loved it! January 15, 2018 at 4:39pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Great idea! January 17, 2018 at 1:02pm Reply

  • Patty: I made this and it was awesome, but I cook for one, even though I had 2 bowls. So I froze the rest. What do think is the best way to reheat? December 30, 2017 at 4:08pm Reply

  • kmp: This soup was delicious…flavor was wonderful with the basil, thyme and rosemary. I used orzo pasta instead of tortellini since I had it on hand and was our dinner for three nights. Making it again today! December 29, 2017 at 12:16pm Reply
