Turkey Meatball Spinach Tortellini Soup

I love turkey meatballs in my soup. Spaghetti and meatball soup is a regular in my home because my kids love it! I also love making tortellini soup – Spinach Tortellini en Brodo is a winter favorite of mine. This recipe combines the best of both soups and my family loved it. I hope yours does too!

This soup is AMAZING guys! It’s so good and simple, perfect on these chilly nights. The Parmigiano-Reggiano rind is a MUST if you have one! It makes the broth so tasty and rich.

I form the meatballs and plop them right into the broth, they come out so tender and melt in your mouth.

If you want to make this ahead for leftovers, you may want to add the Tortellini to the soup later, as it will soak up quite a bit of the broth. If you have leftovers with tortellini already cooked, you can add more liquid to reheat it needs more broth.

  1. Amazing!! I had a soup bowl @ Panera yrs ago similar kinda to this.
    They never had it again , in pursuit of that I stumbled onto this recipe and it’s a keeper! I don’t change anything it’s perfectly wonderful as is.
    I have made this with ground chicken as well bc that’s what I had, it was great too!
    One thing I like to do is I add a little chopped spinach to my piping hot bowl , some parmesran and croutons sounds weird but try it. Eat them up before they get soggy and have extra on hand. Thanks for sharing!

  2. This was AMAZING.    I added a little extra water and chicken soup base and extra tortellini.  I could eat every night!  Has anyone froze it? 

  3. This is surprisingly soooo filling. You won’t want more than one bowl. Really good flavor. I did add a bit of half and half to increase the creaminess.

  4. This is one of our most often made soup recipes you offer. We have made many and like each one, but this is a special soup. It is so mouth watering and very healthy. Thank you

    This was absolutely delicious! Another winner, Gina! I used freshly grated Parmesan and included the rind. I couldn’t find spinach cheese tortellini at the store, do I just used cheese tortellini. Very satisfying and I’ll be making it again!
