Looking for a Creamy Tortellini Soup? This light and creamy version is packed with carrots, leeks and chicken breast!
Friends, if you've been following along here for a while, you know that I am passionate about ending hunger in our communities. So much so, that I've been working with Harvesters Community Food Network for the past two years to raise awareness about hunger in the Kansas City area. Today, I'm sharing this Creamy Tortellini Soup recipe, packed with vegetables and chicken. But, I'm also asking for your help! I am trying to raise enough funds to provide 3,000 Thanksgiving meals this year through Harvesters, and with your help, we can make it happen!
From now until Thanksgiving, if you donate to Harvester's my husband and I will match your donation up to $500! *NOW CLOSED*. This is tax deductible, and a little bit goes a LONG way. For every dollar donated, Harvesters can purchase and distribute food for three complete meals.
Harvesters does such incredible work, feeding over 140,000 people every month. I totally get that we aren't always in a place where there's cash to spare. If that's the case, you could consider giving your time, or giving your voice! Harvesters also has a super fun option to purchase holiday tributes with fun illustrations and recipes by great local chefs.
On to the soup, this is a slightly creamy tortellini soup, packed with vegetables (carrots and leeks) and lean chicken breast. I use rotisserie chicken breast, which saves so much time. This soup is ready in just less than an hour, and is made creamy through the addition of half and half.
Make sure that you remove the soup from the burner and allow it to cool just bit before adding the half and half. If it's still boiling hot, you're at risk for the creaminess to curdle! Yuck!
