Can You Add Meat To Tomato Basil Tortellini Soup 

Absolutely! If you want to make this even heartier, feel free to add in some cooked ground beef or even sausage. Just make sure you cook it up to ground and then add in all the other ingredients and cook. 

Can You Use Fresh Tortellini for Instant Pot Tortellini Soup 

Unfortunately, fresh pasta does not cook up well in the Instant Pot. Because of the high pressure, it will break apart the pasta. It is best to reach for frozen pasta when you are working with a pressure cooker. 

How to Store Leftover Tortellini Soup 

You will want to allow your soup to cool, and then transfer into an airtight container. Store in the fridge for 3-4 days. Anything after that use your best judgment in terms of if the soup has gone bad or not. 

If you add meat into your soup, you will want to store it for just three days instead of four. 

Can You Freeze Creamy Tomato Basil Tortellini Soup

Because of the cream used in this recipe, this soup will not freeze and thaw well. The cream will curdle once it is thawed, and it will offer a different texture. If you don’t plan to eat all of this soup before it goes bad, you can half the recipe, so you won’t have as much leftover. 

What To Serve With Tomato Tortellini Soup

  • Breadsticks
  • Side Sandwich (grilled cheese, ham, turkey, etc)
  • Oyster Crackers or even Saltines 
  • Chopped salad, side salad, etc. 

This soup is great to be served as a main dish or opt to pair with a sandwich or salad to offer a lighter version. It is packed full of fresh and bold flavors that you and your family will enjoy. 

Can I Double This Tortellini Basil Soup Recipe

Yes, you can double this recipe, if your Instant Pot will hold the contents (depends on the size you own). If you do opt to double this recipe, you will leave the cooking time the same. The soup will just take a bit longer to come to pressure, but don’t adjust the cooking time. It will still cook up perfectly. 

If you are wanting something different in terms of soup, I highly recommend my Creamy Tomato Basil Tortellini Soup recipe. It is quick to whip up, fresh ingredients and great for young and old.
