Chicken Tortellini

Let me start this post by saying that I am a huge fan of Baby Led Weaning. What is that you ask? Well, once a baby turns 6 months old you go straight to giving them finger foods. No yucky mush in a jar! I really wish I had heard about this with my daughter, I think she wouldnt be as picky as she is now. My son started out with fresh fruits and veggies cut into sticks, then into cubes. He now eats pretty much whatever we are eating. I love it, my husband loves it, and most of all my little man loves it! That being said, I am always looking for recipes that are more baby friendly. This definitely qualifies! Its simple and delicious!

Chicken Tortellini Soup

2T olive oil
1 small onion-chopped
1 clove garlic-minced
2C cooked chicken- shredded
4C low sodium chicken stock
1C milk
1C cream of chicken soup
1/2t oregeno
2T grated parmesan
Salt and Pepper to taste
1/2C frozen chopped spinach
1 bag cheese filled tortellini

Heat olive oil in a large soup pot. Add onion and garlic and cook for 5 minutes. Add chicken stock, milk, cream of chicken, chicken, oregeno, parmesan, salt and pepper. Cook for about 10minutes. Add tortellini and spinach, cooking 10 minutes longer or until tortellini is heated through.

  1. My boyfriend made this soup for me when I was sick. It was delicious and reminded me of the soup my mom used to make for me when I was a kid. Two thumbs up!!
