Cooking Group ~ Kelley Miller's Easy Tortellini and Spinach Soup



Easy Tortellini and Spinach Soup

A hot bowl of soup on these cold fall and winter nights served with some fresh bread really hits the spot. I love soup!  Don't you?  You know I LOVE trying new recipes...so I was so excited to try Kelley's soup today!  And it's a hit!  It is super fast, easy and delicious so I know you'll love it too!  You can add some cooked chicken to this soup if desired.  If you are adding chicken, add a little extra chicken broth as well. This recipe will serve six.


1 tablespoon butter, or olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 (14 ounce cans) chicken broth
9 ounce package cheese tortellini
course salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
14 ounce can stewed tomatoes (favorite: Muir Glen Fire Roasted Tomatoes)
1/2 bunch fresh stemmed spinach
handful fresh basil, chopped or 1 teaspoon dried
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, garnish

Melt butter in large pot.  Saute garlic in butter over medium heat for a minute.  Stir in broth and tortellini.  Bring to a boil.  Season with salt and pepper. Simmer 5 minutes.  Add tomatoes, spinach and basil.  Simmer 10 minutes.  Garnish with Parmesan cheese and serve with crusty bread.  Now how easy was that?

Here are all of the ingredients measured and bagged for cooking group.
