Any soup made with refrigerated cheese-filled tortellini is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. Add flavorful mushrooms, springy leeks, and creamy cannellini beans, and you've got an easy, hearty soup recipe you'll make on repeat. And don't skip the dollop of pesto on top. It adds a delightful herby richness to the meal. Pantry cooking tip: Use what you have on hand here to make this soup in a snap. Sub in any short-shaped pasta for the tortellini or chickpeas for the cannellini beans; both would work brilliantly.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more for serving

  • 1 8-oz. pkg. sliced cremini mushrooms

  • 2 leeks, white and light green parts only, thinly sliced (about 2 cups)

  • 4 cups low-sodium vegetable or chicken broth

  • 1 15-oz. can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed

  • 1 10-oz. pkg. refrigerated cheese-filled tortellini

  • 4 cups baby arugula

  • ¼ cup refrigerated basil pesto

  • Freshly ground black pepper, for serving


  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high. Add mushrooms; cook, stirring often, until mushrooms release their moisture and brown slightly, 5 to 6 minutes. Add leeks; cook, stirring often, until mushrooms are browned and leeks are tender, about 4 minutes.

  2. Add broth and beans. Bring to a boil over medium-high. Add tortellini; cook, stirring occasionally, according to package directions or until pasta is tender, about 3 minutes.

  3. Place 1 cup arugula in each of 4 shallow bowls. Ladle soup over arugula. Top with pesto, pepper, and a drizzle of oil.
