Why do we love one-pots so much? Besides the obvious, the easy cleanup, they allow us to cook a family-sized meal like our Italian Tortellini Stew, using a variety of our favorite off-the-shelf ingredients!

What You'll Need

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 carrot, finely chopped
  • 1 rib celery, finely chopped
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 (15.5-ounce) can Great Northern beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 (32-ounce) container ready-to-serve chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 medium zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 1 (8-ounce) package dried cheese-filled tortellini

What to Do

  1. In a soup pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add carrot, celery, and onion, and cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Stir in tomatoes, beans, chicken broth, basil, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 30 minutes.
  3. Add zucchini and tortellini then bring to a boil; reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered for 15 minutes, or until tortellini are tender.


  • Freezer-friendly instructions: Follow the recipe above. After cooking, allow stew to cool. Pour stew into freezer-friendly containers and place in freezer. When ready to eat, place frozen stew into fridge to thaw overnight or thaw in the microwave. Then re-heat, serve, and enjoy!

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I made this for my fiance i it was great. I used italian sausage chorizo instead of zuccini added 1/2 of a green pepper 1/2 of a jalepeno pepper. Will make this again for sure!!!

Love the sound of this recipe - but would like instructions to make in the crock pot.

Hey there! The test kitchen has not tried this recipe in a slow cooker, but believes it can be done. Try cooking everything except the tortellini on low for 5-6 hours, then add the tortellini and cook for one more hour. Cook for less time if cooking on high. Let us know how it turns out!

This was very good. I have made several times. Can you freeze?

Yup, go ahead and freeze this soup for later!

this sounds wonderfully good & easy to prepare. Can this be made in a slow cooker???

This was GREAT, GREAT, GREAT!! I also added sausage and left the zucchini out. I will make this again!!

I added Italian sausage to this recipe and it made a wonderful dish. I can't wait until my next potluck at work. This is what I'm taking.
