I've been making this soup for years. It's a simple, comforting and hearty soup, one that even picky kids will usually eat. You can add baby spinach during the last minute or so of cooking to up the nutrition factor. You can also substitute basil for the parsley; even dried basil works during the winter months.

I am sorry, this did not work for us. I followed the recipe exactly with all of the 5 star reviews posted in August on this recipe. I used the amount of tortellini suggested and it soaked up all of the liquid! I ended up having to re-add almost a similar amount of broth back to the recipe. It really didn't have much flavor by that point. I tried the suggestions of garlic, spinach, etc. of the other reviewers and it just did not work for us. The parmesan clumped to the spinach and the tortellini was over-cooked by the time I added the extra necessary liquid. Unfortunately, most of this got tossed after making an effort to fix it. To whoever tries this recipe, I would suggest with starting with half the amount of tortellini and watch it carefully. I guess, I just like this type of pasta better in an anti-pasta type salad. It needs the extra flavorings. I tried two other Barilla recipes this week, with better results, that I will post a picture for. This was trial and error with knowing how much pasta to add per how much broth. Maybe, a tomato based broth would also be more flavorful? I am not really sure.

Great quick hardy soup. I used the spinach tortellini instead of the three cheese ones and it turned out great. It is a dish that seems like you went to a lot of work, but it is so easy.

What a fun way to use tortellini...This recipe is SO easy and delicious! Much healthier than eating soup out of the can!

Sorta bland to the mister and I, but the kids absolutely loved it. We will be making again due to their love of it and the ease of cooking it!!! Maybe next time I'll throw in some veggies to cook in the stock for 30 or so before adding in the tortellini.

I loved this recipe. The only change I did was instead of Chicken Broth I used the dripping from the roast chicken I did on Saturday. I also added some black pepper. This recipe is fast and easy to put together. Will be making again.
