  • Add the roasted peppers, broth, beans, tomatoes, artichoke hearts, celery, onions, olive oil, and garlic to the lined-slow cooker. Stir gently with a wooden spoon or rubber scrapper to combine.

  • Cover and cook on high for 5 hours.

  • Stir in Swiss chard and tortellini gently with a rubber spatula and cook 7 to 9 minutes more or until pasta is just al dente. Serve with Parmesan cheese and Parmesan Crisps, if desired.

  • Parmesan Crisps: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line two large baking sheets with Reynolds® Parchment Paper. In a small bowl, combine Parmesan cheese, fresh thyme or rosemary, and black pepper. Spoon the cheese mixture into 12 portions, 4 inches apart onto prepared baking sheets. Pat each cheese portion into a 5-inch circle. Bake 4 to 6 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown. Let stand on baking sheet until completely cooled. Carefully remove crisps from parchment paper.

REYNOLDS KITCHENS TIP:

There's nothing quite like a delicious bowl of hot soup to warm your heart! And you can prepare this dish ahead of time and freeze using freezer-safe containers. Before you serve, thaw overnight in the refrigerator, then line a 6-quart slower cooker with a liner, and add the finishing touches and enjoy. Once tummies are full and the soup is finished, just throw away the liner for easy cleanup!

This was fantastic. My store did not have swiss chard so I used fresh baby spinach in place of this and it was great. The little parmesan crisps were a nice added touch! Read More

I subbed spinach for the Swiss chard it's what I had on hand. I'm not a fan of artichokes. I really didn't care for the beans and tortellini together. I did like the parmesan crisps - very tasty and easy. The slow cooker liners make clean up a breeze. Read More

I made this on the stove not a slow cooker. I used kale instead of swiss chard. I also added more broth as there wasn't enough to cook the pasta and still have broth left over for the soup. It was very good. Read More

I just made this soup... Stovetop tho because I needed it prepared quicker. I sautéed all veggies first in olive oil then added remaining ingredients. It was amazing even the picky eaters loved it. Definitely could use just one more veggie broth container. So next time I will add double broth. Btw I made this with all organic ingredients. The nutrition in this meal is increased when we don't use pesticide covered veggies:) Read More

Loved this one as did the rest of the family! I didn't add the artichoke because my husband is not a fan and I used fresh chopped spinach instead of Swiss chard because that's what I had on hand. (Added it just before serving because I prefer it just wilted not cooked.) Also added about a tablespoon of fresh basil just because everything taste better with fresh basil.:-) Read More

This recipe turned out really good. It was light and perfect for a cold evening dinner. I had this with some garlic bread and it was a great meal. I substituted kale for the chard as I am more partial to kale. Definitely add two to four cups more broth or less pasta. With the amount suggested there is not enough brith to cover the pasta when finishing the recipe. Read More
