Good morning, and happy Thursday y’all! 
I am coming at you with another yummy recipe today! This is hands down the best chicken soup I have ever made, or tasted for that matter! We had our neighbors over for dinner the night I made this and there was nothing left in the pot after we all finished eating. And the best part, I even got the kids to eat it too! Of course Carson picked out all “the green stuff”, but as long as he ate that was fine by me 🙂 #pickyourbattles


  • 1 tablespoon DeLallo Extra Virign Olive Oil
  • 1 large sweet onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 2 cups sliced carrots
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/4 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast (2 large breasts)
  • 9 cups chicken broth
  • 8.8 ounce package DeLallo Three Cheese Tortellini
  • 1/4 – 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons packed frozen spinach (1/2 cup fresh baby spinach leaves)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme leaves (1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves)
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • Salt and pepper
  • Directions 
  1. Place a large sauce pot over medium heat. Add the olive oil and chopped onions. Saute for 3 minutes to soften. Then add the chopped bell pepper, carrots, and garlic. Saute another 3 minutes.
  2. Add whole chicken breasts, chicken broth, dried thyme, crushed red pepper, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper to the pot. Bring to a simmer. Lower the heat a little and simmer 15 minutes, until the chicken in cooked through. Remove the chicken and place on a cutting board.
  3. Turn the heat back to medium. With the broth still simmering, stir in the DeLallo Three Cheese Tortellini. Stir well so it doesn’t stick together. Then chop or shred the chicken and place back in the soup.
  4. Once the tortellini is cooked through, about 10-14 minutes, turn off the heat. Stir in 1/4 cup heavy cream, spinach, and parsley. Add a little more cream if desired. Taste, then salt and pepper as needed.


Also, a lot of you had questions about the outfits I posted on Instastories yesterday regarding sizing and fit, so I thought I would share that information here for you guys! 

These jeans are pretty amazing, they actually suck you in and also make your legs look longer. For sizing reference, they run big and I’m wearing the size 2 (they were a little too big). Knot tee runs tts and I’m wearing the xs. 

This swingy turtle neck is super lightweight and soft. For reference, I’m wearing the small and it runs tts. And these jeans are another great pair. They are high-waisted and the perfect length for us shorter gals. For sizing reference, I’m wearing the 27. 

Dress runs tts and for reference, I’m wearing the xs.
