I was suspicious of the ingredients in this recipe and worried that the end result would be a yucky, bland mess. I was particularly worried that the spinach taste would overwhelm the rest of the ingredients. But my worries were misplaced! This was a super easy and delicious soup that will quickly become a go-to winter dish for us. I used spinach ricotta tortellini and followed the recipe to the letter. Highly recommend! item not reviewed by moderator and published

excellent soup!! i doubled it for our fam of 5 and everyone loved it!!! i did add a little red pepper like suggested. such a deliciously simple soup, yet nutritious. people would never guess i put 2 whole bags of baby spinach in there. i love the fact that this is such a versatile recipe... i'm sure chicken would taste awesome in it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Yummy. I added carrots, lima beans, a splash of balsamic vinegar, some red pepper flakes, and I used a can of crushed tomatoes as well as some roasted cherry tomatoes. I also flavored it a bit more with some basil, oregano and pinch of sage. Topped it with some grated romano cheese! So easy and good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious! Followed the recipe with a few additions - added a can of cannelloni beans, drained and rinsed, and some cut up and sauteed chicken sausage. Really yummy, fast, and flavorful! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Please don't pass up this recipe because it seems too basic and may lack in flavor. This soup is very simple, yes, but it's also surprisingly good! It's especially good the second day when all of the flavors have had a chance to meld together. I did add some red chili pepper flakes as recommended by other reviewers. Also, I added a teaspoon or two of concentrated chicken stock paste for added flavor and richness and topped it with a little freshly grated parmesan cheese. This is super easy, delicious and perfect for a cold winter night! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this tonight for a friend that just got out of the hospital. Of course I had to taste it. Wow, it was delicious. I added some croutons and they added the crunch. I will make this again. I hope my friend enjoys it too. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Perfecto, very easy and... Delicioso!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I add a good spoonful of pesto and some balsamic vinegar. I also put a handful of fresh spinach on the bottom of each bowl - I don't cook it in the soup - that way the hot soup wilts it when you serve it. It stays so much more fresh that way! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Perfect blend. I didn't need to alter anything! Delicioso! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Absolutely fabulous! The red pepper flakes added a just-right "kick" to the comforting flavors (although families who don't like spicy food might want to tone it down a tad. Some crusty bread was all that was needed to make this soup a complete meal. This recipe is a keeper! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband and I make this recipe constantly. It's so easy- something we can whip up after a long day at the office. It's hearty and tastes like we slaved over it. A little crusty bread and parmesan cheese, and we have quite a meal! We like to add a few more tomatoes and a bit more onion/garlic, but other than that, delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Being a busy college student I found these recipe easy to follow and doubled the recipe and froze the leftovers. Absolutely delicious and so simple! item not reviewed by moderator and published

This is a favorite go-to soup! We add red pepper flakes for zest and increase the liquid for a more brothy soup. Fresh green salad and crusty bread round out a simple ansd delicious meal! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was skeptical about this recipe but decided to try it after reading all the wonderful reviews. This soup was restaurant quality and even my husband, who is not a fan of soups, loved it and asked to have it again soon. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This soup was very tasty and so simple to make. If you like your soup with a little more broth, I would recommend a cup or two more of the chicken stock. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My boyfriend and I really love this soup. Its super easy to make, I used fresh pasta and fresh spinach. Delicious!!!Making a second time today!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
this was a very easy recipe and very tasty. i added a package of chicken sausage which i cooked separately and threw it in at the end and i also added 2 green squash when i cooked the onion and garlic. i'm not a fan of large tomatoes so i used petite diced instead...all five of us enjoyed it! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This soup is wonderfully easy and delicious !!! I used a can of diced tomatoes that made it even easier. My family is not vegetarian, but seriously with all the great flavors, no one missed the meat. A keeper for sure!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this tonight for my husband and I and we LOVED it! It was very fast to make and left us both feeling as though we just ate something healthy without having to compromise on flavor. Many reviews mentioned adding sausage so I did the same and added mild italian turkey sausage at the beginning with the onions (about 1 pound). I think this really made the soup for my husband who has to have meat at every meal. My grocer was out of tortellini so I tried Farfalle and thought the little bow ties looked cute floating around. I also did fresh spinach from a salad bag; I recommend chopping a little at a time and adding to the soup before you chop up the whole bag and then realize you have way too much spinach in the pot. What I liked about this was that there wasn't a lot of chopping up front and hardly any dishes to clean up afterwards...the end to a perfect meal is not having a ton of dishes to do. I will definitely do this one again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This soup is the easiest soup to make and one of the best I've had! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Had to take the time to rate this recipe because this soup is fantastic! I improvised and added ground Italian sweet sausage. Turned out excellent. I'm having a neighborhood soup party and this one is definitely on the the menu. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I can count on one hand how many recipes I have taken the time to rate. This one is in our monthly rotation. Especially with the cold weather it is SO comforting, easy and delicious. Super quick for a crazy night. I will note that I have tried with both the refrigerated, frozen and the dry tortellini. The dry really does seem to be better. I make it with fresh spinach. Delicious. BUT... for a quick meal, I keep all the pantry ingredients and some frozen whole leaf spinach in the freezer for a quick desperation meal. Not a fantastic reheated meal however. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm not usually one to go out of my way to leave reviews, but I just had to after making this soup. So easy to make, one pot, great fulfilling taste.. what's not to love? I added white beans and chopped zucchini and tastes even better. Great meal for one as well. Put the leftovers into separate containers and plan on freezing them so I can bring to work for lunch. Yum! Must try this! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Even my picky eaters (kids) ate. My whole family loved it..It had great flavor too. I used frozen tortellini instead. Will make it again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wow! What can I say - so good. I used a can of oregano flavored diced tomatoes. Then I realized I only had 3 cups of low sodium chicken stock. The soup still made at least 4 very hearty portions (or 6 normal size portions). So good! Even my husband raved about it. Might add an extra can of tomatoes next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this soup with fresh baby spinach chopped very fine instead of frozen or can and did not use the cheese. Came out wonderful. This recipe is a keeper in my file. Enjoy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband and I have soup and sandwich for dinner every other day. I made this soup today because I had some extra tortellini in the closet. It was SUPER. We both enjoyed it with some buttered bread, and will definitely make it again. This time I'll buy the tortellini just to make the soup! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I wanted a basic soup for our wintery day. YUM.

This was so easy to make and so delicious! I had this for lunch every day and it didn't phase me that I was eating the same thing. The tortellini did soak up more water as it sat in the fridge, so I had to add water to make it more like soup later in the week, but it didn't even ruin the flavor. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I liked this very much - however, next time I would use dried tortellini as the fresh took up so much space in the soup. I may try mini penne also. You could also substitute zucchini or basil or carrots or celery etc. In season fresh tomatoes would be great also. Just use your imagination! item not reviewed by moderator and published

This soup is excellent as is. I make it often so I experiment with different spices & broth flavors. My husband likes a hearty soup, so sometimes I add 1/2 lb lean ground beef. Our favorite tortellini is Barilla spinach & ricotta. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Made this last night after I got home from a night class. I added chicken breast pieces because my boyfriend wanted meat in it. We used Penne instead of Tortellini because he doesn't like ricotta and we couldn't find any without it. It's very good with italian bread dipped in it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I LOVE this recipe! We ate it for lunch three days in a row and I didn't hear so much as a peep about having leftovers! I'll double the broth to tortellini ratio next time to make it even lower in calories! Thanks for this keeper! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I liked this soup. I picked a three cheese tortellini by Barilla that was a bit rich, so may try a different type next time. The broth was great. The only negative comment was "it stunk up the house." I like the "dinner kit" idea. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The soup was easy and fast to prepare. I used canned tomatoes with italian seasoning + a few fresh chopped tomatoes.

I tried this recipe expecting to have a light lunch. A friend stopped by and then my husband tried a bowl. Needless to say, the pot was empty and I made another the next day. Taste is great and it's quick for busy families. Thanks! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I make this soup almost every week! However, I use 1/2 Tb of oil, 1/8 cup of the cheese, and cut out the tortellini. When I do that, it makes a great 0 point soup for those of us on Weight Watchers! Don't laugh...I'm at 65 pounds - and only have 35 more to go!! Enjoy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dish was so easy and very tasty. I couldn't believe how delicious the broth came out. I used mushroom tortolini and it was very good. I had leftovers the next day and the broth was soaked up into the pasta, so it was more like a pasta dish and less like a soup. It still tasted very good, though. Enjoy! item not reviewed by moderator and published

This is one of the easiest and most delicious soups I've ever tried. You can't go wrong with garlic, a little onion, chicken broth and cheese filled tortellini! How easy to get in a serving of veggies with the spinach! You will NOT regret trying this soup! Try it with some crusty bread - yummy! I would recommend it to anyone!
