Chicken Alfredo Tortellini Soup
Comforting Chicken Alfredo Tortellini Soup recipe where the flavors blend together so well everyone will be begging for seconds! The Parmesan Alfredo sauce is the special ingredient that makes this hearty soup rich and creamy.
I have one amazing soup recipe for you today. No. Seriously. It’s one of the easiest and absolute best tasting. It’s warm, creamy, cheesy, comforting and even has some delicious veggies. I made this on one of the first very cold days of the fall and it really hit the spot. However, I definitely don’t discriminate when it comes to soup. I’ll eat it pretty much any time of the year. My absolutel favorite (and apparently my readers’ favorite as of lately) is this Copycat Panera Chicken & Wild Rice Soup. So, what to eat when comfort food sounds too heavy and soup sounds too light? This Chicken Alfredo Tortellini Soup, obviously!
If you’re wondering where I got this winning soup recipe, I’m so excited to tell you about a brand new cookbook, The Simple Kitchen, my friends Donna and Chad from The Slow Roasted Italian came out with. They have a stellar blog packed full of delicious Italian recipes…and you all know my love for Italian food. They really put out some great content and their photos are beautiful. This Chicken Alfredo Tortellini Soup can be found on page 112 of their new book.
I had the pleasure of meeting Donna and Chad in person years ago at the BlogHer Food Miami conference. They are two people who are excited about what they do – it’s not just a job to them. That’s how I aspire to be as a food blogger. They are always willing to give advice and help out their friends. I’m lucky to know them!
I’ve made countless recipes off of The Slow Roasted Italian blog in the past, but now I’m excited to have this new cookbook full of their best and newest recipes. Inside The Simple Kitchen are 8 chapters and each chapter has over 10 tried-and-true easy recipes. There are also a lot of kitchen tricks and techniques scattered throughout the cookbook that are very helpful. I know you guys will love this one and I hope you try it out! The recipes are perfect for busy weeknights. Hey, it would also make a great Christmas gift.
Give this hearty Chicken Alfredo Tortellini Soup a try soon and remember to save room for seconds! You are going to need it.
