Italian Vegetable Tortellini Soup

Hello! I know so many people are requesting my recipes on my Instagram. I’m so sorry that I am not able to be quicker. Life is fairly busy for me as I am a new-ish mama to this precious lil girl. Miss Pepper Marie is almost 9 months old, is a olympic gold medalist at fighting sleep when she is exhausted, and she’s teething. I’m not complaining. I love her with my whole heart. It makes for slow recipe writing, blog updating, and food making.

Please bare with me. I promise. We are creating something super special here. My goal is to get at least one recipe tested, written, photographed, and posted a week. Some weeks maybe more, some weeks maybe none.

This is a total work in progress.

Now, for this soup. oh my goodness is it good. You can really play around with it when it comes to the added veggies. I was going to add spinach in this as well, but I forgot it. It’s kind of almost a ‘everything but the kitchen sink’ type of soup.

It’s delicious, nutritious, and EASY. what more could you ask for? I mean, really.

ONE AND A HALF CUPS IS ONLY 3 SMART POINTS! I love to pair it with bread, and some more bread because I don’t feel guilty about it.

    How much is a serving? I see it says 9 servings, but can’t find where it tells how much a serving is.

    • 1 1/2 cups is the serving size. it says it in the post, but I must have forgotten to write it on the printable! Enjoy!

  4. How is this reheated?! I’ve read that for soups with tortellini, if you’re planning on reheating it, add the tortellini in each serving as you go! Do you think I’d need to do that here? I’m planning on making a big pot for my lunches all week!

    • Hi Renee! I’ve always just reheated mine just as is. It should be fine to do it that way. It really depends on the type of soup in my experience. In creamier soups with tortellini you will lose a lot of the broth, but since this one is fairly “brothy” it doesn’t seem to do it. I hope you enjoy!!

  5. Your Vegetable Tortellini Soup recipe is delicious!!! We love it!

  6. This sounds delicious! Do you happen to know the calories on the serving? I seen it’s 3sp, but was curios on the calories! TIA 🙂

    • Thanks! I’m not sure at the moment. This is a older recipe and for some reason, I didn’t include the nutritional information right away in the beginning! I will go back and add this to the few recipes that don’t have it in the next few days. I will reply to your comment again when I do! Happy New Year!

  7. Just made this for dinner. Perfect. Very filling and flavorful. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe.
