  1. Hi Brianna. I’m so glad you love this soup! My family loves it too! Yes, you can freeze it. It freezes pretty well! Not quite as good as when you first make it but still good! Thanks! -Amy

  2. We love this soup at my dinner table. I am just wondering if it would still be good if I froze the leftovers for reheating later? Or would it be ruined?

  5. Love! Love! I made this soup about a week ago and it is simply delicious! The only thing I did differently was use beef stock! I renamed it “turtle soup” and use the spinach cheese filled tortellinis I tell my grand kids that they are little turtles and the spinach and veggies are their “turtle food” They love it!
