Do you have questions about this Instant Pot Tortellini Soup recipe? Here are the answers to the most commonly asked questions.
Store leftover Instant Pot soup in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Make sure all containers are stored in the refrigerator.
Yes, Instant Pot tortellini soup can be frozen. I would recommend freezing it before adding the fresh spinach and tortellini. Then make sure you thaw it completely before reheating.
Reheating Instant Pot soup is easy. It can be reheated on the stove or microwave. If using the microwave, you may need to add some water because leftover soup can thicken as it cools.
