Dump and Start Recipe

If you’re looking for a quick throw-together meal for a busy weeknight or weekend, this recipe is it.  Simply dump everything into the pot except the tortellini, half & half, and thickener.  After the Instant Pot is done cooking, set the Instant Pot to SAUTE and add in the last ingredients and only cook for about 3 to 5 minutes longer.  It’s really that simple!

Simple Soup Recipe

Making this Chicken Tortellini Soup in the Instant Pot is really simple.  The ingredients list is quite small and uses everyday ingredients.  I used 3-cheese tortellini for this recipe because I absolutely love cheese in my soups.  If you prefer, you can use mushroom or any other variety you would like.  It’s important to add the tortellini in the last step to make sure you don’t overcook the pasta.  It takes about 3 to 5 minutes to reach the desired texture and doneness of your pasta.

I also used half & half in this recipe.  If you have heavy cream or evaporated milk on hand, you can use those instead.  It may change the texture of the soup overall, but they are interchangeable.
