Say cheese! It makes all the difference in this easy homemade soup.
This is classic chicken noodle soup... only way more exciting with the addition of cheesy tortellini!!
Don’t get me wrong, I love the classic chicken noodle soup, but sometimes the noodle part leaves me just a little blah. I'm one of those people who full-on believes that the addition of a little butter, a little cheese (or maybe even a little of both) never hurt anybody. It’s good flavor.
So this got me thinking about how I could jazz up classic chicken noodle soup, but still keep it simple, quick and family friendly. I've been on a tortellini kick lately, so my thoughts went in that direction. It sounded pretty delicious in my head, so I was really excited to try this recipe out.
It turned out awesome – all the flavors of chicken noodle soup, but with the addition of cheesy stuffed pasta. So yummy!
Start with some savory veggies.
Add the veggies to the bowl of a slow cooker.
Add the chicken and seasonings, then pour in the broth, cover and cook on Low for 6-8 hours or High for 4-6 hours.
Just before serving, add the tortellini and crank the heat up to high.
Cook another 10 minutes and then stir in the Parmesan cheese...
...and the parsley and lemon juice.
Ladle the soup into bowls and top with a bit of Parmesan if you want.
Serve with crackers and enjoy a nice, warm cozy meal!
