Garlicky Tortellini Soup with Tomato and Spinach
Recipe type: Soup
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6
  • 2 TBS olive oil
  • 6 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 48 ounces of chicken broth
  • A few dashes of red pepper flakes (if you like spice)
  • 1 package of fresh cheese tortellini
  • 14½ ounces of crushed tomatoes (the whole can)
  • 6-12 ounces fresh baby spinach leaves...depending on your taste
  • Freshly shaved Parmesan Cheese for garnish (optional)
  1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the garlic and saute for no more than 45 seconds (do not brown). Add the chicken broth and red pepper flakes.
  2. Increase the heat to high and bring to a boil. Add the tortellini and cook for half the cooking time on the package. Add the tomatoes, reduce heat to medium-low and continue cooking until the tortellini is tender. Stir in the spinach and cook until it wilts (about a minute). Season if necessary with salt and pepper.
  3. The flavors of this soup are good immediately - something I don't usually find with soups.
