Tortellini, Chicken, and Arugula Salad
A bright, springtime salad that comes together in a cinch. Hearty cheese tortellini, shredded rotisserie chicken, and peppery arugula join forces to create a light, yet filling, salad with plenty of texture and substance. Zippy lemon dressing adds welcomed vibrancy while shaved Parmesan adds a hit of salty, full-bodied flavor.
Tortellini, White Bean, and Turnip Greens Soup
Looking for a meatless meal that still satisfies? Try this filling soup loaded with pasta, beans, and vegetables. Swap out the tortellini for refrigerated ravioli if you prefer.
Hearty Tortellini Soup
This satisfying main is a great way to reset after a few weeks of meat-centered holiday eating. If freezing, be sure to cool the soup completely before adding the tortellini or they will absorb too much liquid and lose their shape.
Turkey Tortellini Soup with Greens
Brothy and light, this is a perfect summer soup. A quick and easy pesto adorns each bowl for a burst of herbal freshness. In a pinch, you can use purchased pesto.
Easier Chicken Noodle Soup
Using cheese-filled tortellini as the noodle here adds more flavor than plain pasta; a hint of miso further enriches the broth. You can make the soup a couple of days ahead--just leave out the pasta, as it will swell once it goes into the liquid. Reheat the soup until it comes to a simmer. Then add the tortellini, and cook 6 minutes.
