Creamy Tortellini Soup

Ok, you guys.  Please allow me to introduce you to my newest soup obsession:  Creamy White Bean Bacon and Tortellini Soup.

This soup isn’t just “good” it’s blow your mind, knock your socks off, heart warming, soul satisfying, most amazing cold weather soup ever.

I’ve seen so many versions of tortellini soup on Pinterest, have made several, this is the one my family loves most.

What’s not to love about cheese tortellini, salty bacon, and creamy white beans all in a velvety chicken and cream broth?

Creamy Tortellini Soup Easy

Not only is this soup really flavorful, it’s all whipped up in one pot for an easy dinner, and super simple cleanup!

In the video below I show you how to make creamy tortellini soup, but let’s go over a few things/steps right here, first!

  • Cook your bacon first to desired doneness.  But, do cook it all the way through and make sure it’s completely done when you remove it from the pan.
  • Don’t leave the bacon in the pan, add it in at the end.  So, you cook your bacon and remove it to a paper towel lined plate while you get your broth cooking.  If you don’t, your bacon will end up either overcooked or mushy, and nobody wants that!
  • There is no butter or flour in the soup!  It becomes creamy with the use of heavy cream, which keeps the broth hearty but light. If you’d like you can use half & half.
  • Feel free to use more or other meats.  This tortellini soup is great with added chicken, or Italian sausage as well.

  1. Is it imperative that you dice the bacon beforehand or can you just cook the whole sliced and then crumble after? I made this the first time and it took a long time to dice the uncooked bacon.

  2. 4 stars
    Wow that was REALLY tasty; thanks for a great recipe! I used about 2 cups of some amazing bone broth I had made from a turkey we smoked at Christmas – that gave a great depth of flavor to the broth. I used 1/2 and 1/2 and added some chopped cabbage to the simmering liquid; those were the only variations.
    One thing I’d edit is when to add the seasoning. Somewhere along the line I learned “season the food, not the liquid” so I considered adding the Italian seasoning, etc. to the onions and garlic as they sautéed. I didn’t, instead following the recipe which said to add them along with the cream, but in the end the herbs didn’t seem fully integrated and I wished I had gone ahead and added them earlier. Minor preference. Like I said, this was super-delish!

  3. Hi there. This soup looks delish!! I might be missing it, but when do you add the heavy cream? Same time as broth? Thank you!!
