Chicken and Cheese Tortellini Soup for #SundaySupper

Street View from my Village

This February in Michigan has been a cold one. Life at my house is spent bundling up children and fighting the snow and frozen waterers for the chickens. Seed catalogs have come and orders have been made. The days are getting longer and there is hope of Spring in the brisk air, but the cold is still lingering outside my door. On days when the wind is blowing and snow is swirling around, there is nothing better than a nice hot bowl of soup. It is as heart warming as it is body warming. For #SundaySupper this week, Pam of The Meltaways is hosting a Souper Sunday Supper.  I am contributing a Smoked Chicken Sausage and Cheese Tortellini Soup.




This Soup is hearty with its meat and cheese pasta but the broth is light, made with tomatoes and chicken stock. I use the Rind of Parmesan Cheese to help flavor the broth. This gives the broth a nice buttery flavor. The Soup is best served hot on a cold day, but it really is good just about anytime and anywhere.





Chicken and Cheese Tortellini Soup

Meal type Soup
Misc Freezable, Serve Hot


  • 26oz Chicken Stock
  • 15.5oz Canned diced Tomatoes undrained (This equals to 1 can)
  • 2 cups Water
  • 1lb Chicken Smoked Sausages (This came to 4 sausages for me)
  • 1/2 cup Brussel Sprout Leaves (I used about 5 large sprouts to get this many leaves)
  • 1lb Frozen Cheese Tortellini
  • 1 Parmesan Cheese Rind (optional)
  • 1 pinch Dried Oregano
  • 5 Basil Leaves (cut into ribbons...More for finishing each bowl of soup is optional )
  • 2 Green Onions (The onion for the broth and the Greens for the top of the soup for serving)
  • 1 Garlic Clove Minced
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


Step 1
Into a large pot, combine the Chicken Stock, Tomatoes and Water. Bring to a simmer
Step 2
To the simmering broth add in the Brussel Sprout Leaves, Parmesan Cheese Rind, Basil, Garlic, Onions and seasonings.
Step 3
Dice up your Smoke Chicken Sausages and add to the soup pot.
Step 4
Let soup simmer for 20 minutes to combine all the flavors. If your Parmesan rind becomes too soft and begins to fall apart, you can remove it from the soup. The Rind really adds a salty buttery flavor to the broth.
Step 5
Add in the frozen Cheese Tortellini. When the pasta is heated through, you can serve your soup
Step 6
For serving, I like to add extra basil ribbons and the greens of the green onion on top of each bowl. I also like to shave the Parmesan and add that to the top of the soup.

  15. What a lovely soup! And thank you for the tips of using the Brussels Sprouts, and also the parmean cheese rind. I’ve never tried that, and I can imagine how buttery it would make it, like you wrote- love it!

  16. I have just placed my seed order as well and today I noticed that the daffodils are starting to come up. So there is hope that spring is just around the corner. But until then it is absolutely freezing here so soups like this are a must.
