Creamy, hearty, and comforting Chicken Alfredo Tortellini Soup is an easy one-pot dish that will warm you up on a chilly day! It combines the flavors of classic Chicken Alfredo with the indulgence of tortellini pasta in a warm, creamy broth.
In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onions and sauté for 2-3 minutes until they become translucent.
Add the diced chicken to the pot and cook until it's no longer pink on the outside, about 5 minutes (it doesn’t need to be cooked through yet).
Stir in the carrot and celery, and cook for another 2-3 minutes until they begin to soften. Add in the minced garlic and cook for 1 minute.
Pour in the chicken broth, heavy cream, dried thyme, dried oregano, and bay leaf.
Bring the soup to a gentle boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer for 10-15 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender and the chicken is cooked through.
Add in the tortellini for the last 5-10 minutes of cooking. Cook until tender.
