To get started on making this delicious Creamy Tortellini Soup you will need 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, 1 seeded and finely diced green bell pepper, 1 finely diced medium sweet onion, 1 pound of ground turkey, 2 tablespoons of Italian seasoning, 1 tablespoon of garlic powder, 1 tablespoon of onion powder, black pepper, salt, 16 oz of diced tomatoes, 3 tablespoons of all-purpose flour, 8 cups of chicken broth, 2 cups of cheese-filled tortellini pasta, 2 cups of chopped kale, and 1 cup of heavy cream.
Heavy cream and flour are what make this soup creamy and thick! You do not want to skip these two additions. The texture and flavor that they add are so rewarding to the palate!
To make this, heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Sauté the diced bell peppers and onions together for about 4 minutes. Next, add the ground turkey and brown it for about 5 minutes. Be sure to break it up so it crumbles and cooks evenly. Season with Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, and salt. Then, add the diced tomatoes, flour, and chicken broth. Stir everything well. Bring the soup to a boil and add the dried tortellini pasta and chopped kale. Simmer covered with a lid for 20 minutes. Finally, stir in the heavy cream. At last, the soup is ready to be served and enjoyed with crusty bread and/or crackers!
When you try this Creamy Tortellini Soup, you should be able to notice that the black pepper gives it a nice kick.
This soup lasts in the refrigerator for about five days. However, once you get your first taste, it might not even last those many days. Simply reheat it and add more water or broth if you need more liquid. The tortellini does tend to soak up the liquid the more it sits in the soup in the refrigerator. Reheating it tastes the same as when it has just been made. Just know that when you try a bowl of this soup, you won’t want to put it down. Hopefully, you enjoy this Creamy Tortellini Soup to the fullest!
