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. 

Ingredients:

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

Directions:

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.
