I recently found out about Buitoni pastas and I haven’t looked back since. I have a couple of amazing recipes coming your way, with this delicious Pesto Chicken Tortellini Soup being first up. For this recipe, I used Buitoni Herb Chicken Tortellini and Buitoni Pesto, and I was SO impressed. The flavor of the tortellini really shines, and it’s just a bonus that it’s so easy to prepare.

I found it refrigerated in the deli section (sometimes it’s in the dairy section) of my local grocery store, and I so hope you check it out. They have lots of varieties and flavors, but you can’t go wrong. The Herb Chicken just might be my favorite!! The pasta is filled with tender chicken breast, lightly seasoned with rosemary, roasted garlic and a touch of Grana Padano cheese.
