Talk about a hodge podge of a soup! When  time is not on your side the Instant Pot always comes to the rescue. Time, nor food planning was on my side today. Actually, it turned out pretty darn good- if not the tastiest soup I have made to date in the pot. So much so the pot was completely gone.  Today I am sharing how I made a cheese tortellini, chicken and kale soup. Some may hate kale. We actually love it, and it is so good for you. You may substitute spinach if you like.

I happened to make two beer can chickens the day before. You can check out my Beer can chicken recipe HERE My intent was to have one for dinner and make chicken salad with the other for the next few days to have for lunch. That never happened. I only had about half a chicken left. Soup was the perfect plan.

These mini tortellini’s are so darn good!


Barilla Collezione Pasta, Three Cheese Tortellini

I didn’t even use the whole bag. I have enough left for a small dish of pasta for lunch tomorrow. I will just make them plain.

Pin it, make it!

Enjoy! Hope to see you back again. See recipe down below.
