Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Try substituting refrigerated spinach cheese tortellini in place of the cheese tortellini.
  • tip 2
    Increase the crushed red pepper flakes to 1/2 teaspoon for a spicier version of this soup. Or leave this ingredient out entirely if you don’t care for spicy foods.
  • tip 3
    Store leftover soup covered in refrigerator for up to 5 days.
  • tip 4
    This soup pairs perfectly with some Pillsbury™ French bread.
