How to Make 15 Minute Tortellini Soup:

The base of this nutritious soup is traditional chicken stock. You can keep it easy by using store bought (I highly recommend Kettle and Fire) or make your own on the cooktop or Instant Pot! It’s totally up to you, either way this soup will be delicious. If you have never made chicken broth before, it’s actually pretty fun. So if you’re looking to expand your cooking horizons, I highly recommend giving it a go.

The Veggies:

 To make this easy soup, we start with a classic mirepoix, which is a fancy French word for chopped carrots, celery and onion sautéed in olive oil. Simply simmer the veggies for a few minutes until soft.

The Pasta:

Then add your favorite fresh tortellini. You can find it in the refrigerated deli section of the grocery store in three cheese, spinach, chicken…take your pick! Add artichoke hearts and you have a delicious warm meal in 15 minutes or less! If artichokes aren’t your bag you can always use peas, or simply dice an avocado and add it last.
