Tortellini Soup

Since our weather refuses to make the change from winter to spring, we are still into our soups around here.  I think that may be the one and only good thing about still having winter like weather.  I love soup, if you haven't noticed.  Mike even had the gull to say that I make too much soup.....who says that?!  Who FEELS that way?!  Insane I tell ya. 


1 Pkg. of Tortellini of your choice. 
2 Carrots
1 medium Onion
2-3 cloves of Garlic
1 Large Can of Chicken Broth
1 Large Can of Crushed Tomatoes
2 Cups Fresh Spinach
2 tsp. Italian Seasoning
Salt and Pepper for taste
Cheese for Garnish


Start your Tortellini and cook according to package directions. 

Chop up all your veggies. 
Have your personal assistant nearby to help with anything you need.

In a pot, start cooking your carrots in a tablespoon or so of oil.

After about 3 minutes, add your onions and garlic.  Cook for about 3-4 minutes.

Add in your can of chicken broth and stir. Bring to a simmer and cook for about 5 minutes.

After about 5 minutes, add in your spices.

Salt and Pepper

Add in your can of crushed tomatoes and stir to combine. 

Next, add in precooked Tortellini.

Bring this back up to a boil to have all the flavors combine.  Boil for 1-2 minutes and then add in your spinach.  Stir until all the spinach wilts. 

Serve topped with Parmesan cheese.

  1. Looks yummy, but I'm with Mike... I'm not a big soup person.

  2. Well, this recipe looks familiar :) Your pics are way nicer than mine though!
    Nice that you went with good brand tortellini - after I ran out of fresh pasta, I learned the hard way that the dry stuff (as opposed to the frozen) is pretty darn bad. Oh well.
