4 servings

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup minced onion (about 1/2 small onion)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 4 to 6 cups broth, chicken or vegetable
  • 1 (14-ounce) can whole tomatoes, crushed through your fingers or coarsely chopped
  • 1 (9-ounce) package fresh tortellini or 4 servings dried tortellini
  • Coarse grained salt and cracked black pepper
  • 10 ounces fresh or frozen spinach, defrosted and chopped
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan, very loosely packed

In a 3-quart soup pot, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Saute the onion and garlic, stirring often until onions are translucent, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add broth and tomatoes, turn heat up to high, and bring to a boil. Add the tortellini and cook according to package instructions. When tortellini is almost done, add spinach and taste, adjusting seasonings with salt and pepper. Serve immediately. Garnish each serving with a sprinkling of Parmesan.

    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!
    This soup was super easy and quick to make and really tasty. Followed the recipe as is, will definitely be making it again
    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!
    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.  
    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!
    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!
    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.
    I love that it is so easy and FAST! I sprinkled a little red pepper flake and dried oregano for flavor. Perfect. Great for weeknights or make-ahead and freeze. Yum!
    My husband actually made dinner! It was easy, quick, and tasty.
    Perfecto, very easy and... Delicioso!!!!
    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!
    Perfect blend. I didn't need to alter anything! Delicioso!
    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!
    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!
    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!
    This is deceivingly easy to make and leads you to believe that the flavor won't be there BUT it so is! I increase the liquid and add a few spices but it is a great go to recipe. I've made it monthly for years.
    This is so yummy. I made it for an event tonight and couldn't help myself, had to have a bowl. Yum!
    My favorite so far. I used diced tomatoes and I ate it with and without the cheese and I liked just a well without the cheese.
    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!
    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.
    Super quick and easy to make. Very delicious!
    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.
    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!!!
    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!
    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!!
    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!
    This soup is the easiest soup to make and one of the best I've had!
    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.
    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.
    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!
