  • Return heat to high and bring to a boil.
  • While the water is heating pull apart the chicken meat into bite size pieces.
  • Add the dry tortellini to the pot of boiling water and stir to keep the tortellini from sticking. After about 5 minutes add the can of rinsed cannellini beans and chicken meat to the pot and stir.
  • Continue boiling until the tortellini is tender and cooked through about 12 to 15 minutes.
  • Serve with bread or crackers.

Notes

  • Fresh spinach or parsley is not necessary for the flavor of the soup but makes a nice contrasting color to the other ingredients.
  • If you have some baby spinach leaves or parsley on hand you can rinse and roll the spinach leaves and slice them thinly and add to the hot soup. For parsley rinse and chop finely.
