A creamy and hearty Italian soup packed with dairy free tortellini pasta and cannellini beans.  This easy to make vegan tortellini pasta e fagioli is a wholesome meal everyone will love. 


Tortellini Soup

Pasta e Fagioli is a classic Italian soup whose name literally translates into “pasta and beans.” Typically it is made with ditalini noodles; however, we decided it needed to be kicked up a notch or two… enter tortellini! 

The combination of creamy dairy free cheese inside a coat of pasta is a match made in heaven for this bean soup. Not only does it add protein (thanks to the “cheese” made from almonds) but it also turns a bowl of soup into a hearty meal. Then, serve it alongside some crusty bread for dipping and you have one amazing plant-based dinner. Yay, soup super! 



  • Vegan Tortellini Little packages of comfort. This pasta screams home. We recommend the brand Kite Hill. 😍
  • Cannellini Beans  –  Creamy and healthy, these white kidney beans are perfect for any soup. 
  • Carrot  – Carrots give this soup a pop of color as will as added nutrients. 
  • Celery  –  The celery lends depth of flavor to this hearty soup. 
  • Onion & Garlic  –  The amazing aroma of onion and garlic is evident until the finished product.  
  • Crushed Tomatoes  –  Canned crushed tomatoes add acidity that compliments the herbs and spices. 
  • Vegetable Stock  –  The addition of vegetable stock turns it into a wonderful soup. 
  • Vegan Parmesan  –  Plant-based parmesan cheese (we love the brand Violife) gives this soup necessary salt as well as a slight creaminess. 
  • Herbs & Spices  –  A hit to the nose and the stomach, this combination is essential to the comforting power of this soup. 
  • Olive Oil – The additional flavor and necessary fat helps to meld all of the ingredients together.


FAQ & Tortellini Pasta e Fagioli Tips:

  • How do you pronounce pasta e fagioli? 

    • In the United States this soup is pronounced pasta fasul (fazool) which is derived from its Neapolitan name.  However, you could also just call it pasta and bean soup! 
  • What to serve with tortellini soup? 

    • Crusty bread is perfect for dipping in this soup. However, we would also suggest serving it alongside a light and healthy salad for one nutritious meal. 
  • Time Saver. 

    • No need to boil the tortellini pasta separately! Simply allow the tortellini to cook while simmering in the soup.  
  • Mix It Up. 

    • If you can’t find vegan tortellini, ravioli can also be used. We like the brand Kite Hill for both.  However, any pasta noodle will work for a classic pasta e fagioli recipe.
