Instant Pot Zuppa Toscana Tortellini

An Irresistible Zuppa Toscana Tortellini in the Instant Pot

Look, I get it. Every single soup recipe starts with… “well the weather is changing, and that makes it SOUP SEASON!”. I am not going to do that to you. I needed (lol) Instant Pot Zuppa Toscana Tortellini, and it was made. It was 90 degrees outside. Whoops.

Why it is Important to Make it Your Own

There are many recipes in Pinterest that I have followed 100% and never deviated from. As you can imagine, those recipes are staples in our life. (It would be fun to have a full blog of those!). But, we like what we like. Dave will read recipes and just start talking out loud “this really need [insert ingredient here]. As a result of that research, a new “Wayne approved” recipe is birthed.

We are all unique with different tastes. Weeding through everyone’s “take” on a classic meal is often really fun. I highly suggest reviewing your saved recipes and see what characteristics sound good to you. As a result, you will find yourself cooking to your preferences. Also, don’t like burger? I promise, you don’t have to use it. Try Tofu. Try Turkey.

The Wild Wayne’s Instant Pot Zuppa Toscana Tortellini

Take a look at our recipe (and Dave’s video) below. As you can tell, we love hearty soups. What always stands out to me first is out little liquid there is in our soups. I do enjoy a broth-heavy soup, but Dave does not. So, what happens? Broth-level is not a deal breaker for me, however it is for him. This leads to Dave adding more vegetables and/or meat to our soups than most recipes you see. Let me tell you, I am NOT complaining. 😉

We both really hope you enjoy this one!

A how to make the absolute, very best zuppa toscana with herb chicken tortellini in your instant pot inspirational show. I have to admit I'm not that big of a soup guy but I have some soup recipes that I have a very hard time getting myself to stop after two bowls they're so good. This is by far one of my very favorite soup recipes. This soup has herb chicken tortellini, spicy italian sausage, smokey ham, spinach, carrots, onions and potatoes along with some other ingredients that make this recipe oh so good.
