Using cheese-filled tortellini as the noodle here adds more flavor than plain pasta; a hint of miso further enriches the broth. You’ll sometimes find miso in your supermarket’s produce section, near the tofu; it might be on the Asian foods aisle on the shelf. For the least expensive option, pick up miso at an Asian market. We call for white miso here, which is sweeter and less salty than red miso. Once you have it, it will last for months in the fridge; use it in salad dressings, marinades, or anywhere else you want savory depth. You can make the soup a couple of days ahead—just leave out the pasta, as it will swell once it goes into the liquid. Reheat the soup until it comes to a simmer. Then add the tortellini, and cook 6 minutes.

How to Make It

Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high. Add onion, carrot, and celery; sauté 8 minutes. Add stock, water, miso, pepper, and salt; increase heat to high. Bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 5 minutes. Stir in tortellini. Cover and reduce heat to medium; cook 6 minutes. Stir in chicken and parsley.
