Caroline Contessa - Chicken Tortellini Soup

IT IS OFFICIALLY FALL!!! At least according to the calendar. The Texas weather is still a little slow to catch up! I may have to wait another month before I start breaking out my sweaters and boots, but I am ready for fall recipes. And I’m justifying this by the fact that when I left the house this morning, the temperature was in the 50s!! Never mind the fact it’ll be in the 80s again next week. Let’s focus on right now. Right now, it’s fall and that means soup weather. Chicken Tortellini Soup!

Chicken Tortellini Soup is a fave because it’s quick, easy and fairly healthy! And anything I can throw in a crock pot and have dinner waiting when I walk in the door is a win! If I’m really good, I can pretend my husband cooked dinner for me! No? Okay, whatever. But it’s still a yummy recipe that doesn’t take long to prepare!



  • 1 pound boneless chicken breast
  • 3 stalks celery (chopped)
  • 2 large carrots (chopped)

I hope you love this soup as much as I do and hopefully this will get you in the mood for fall … at least until you can bring out the sweaters and boots permanently!
