Healthy Tortellini Soup Meal Prep and Storage

Meal Prep – Cook the soup and the tortellini separately as directed, then allow both to cool completely. Scoop single servings into individual containers, or family sized servings into gallon freezer bags (or jars/containers with lids). Separating the tortellini and the soup (or it will fall apart).
Frozen Soup – Be sure any container is only filled 2/3 full as the soup will expand in the freezer. Store for up to a month in the freezer. If freezing gallon bags, lay flat to freeze to save storage room. 
Refrigerated Soup – Will hold in the refrigerator for 4 days.
Reheating – Add to a medium or large sauce pot, heat frozen for 30 minutes on low (add tortellini for the last 10 minutes). Or defrosted soup for 5-10 minutes over medium-low heat (add the tortellini after 5 minutes).
