Tortellini and Vegetable Soup

Home Made Tortellini and Vegetable Soup

tortellini and vegetable soupI am a big fan of soup in the winter especially ones loaded with fresh vegetables. This soup is kind of a play on chicken noodle soup accept I am using tortellini and I did not put chicken. This soup has cheese tortellini, carrots, celery, onion, and spinach! It’s so easy and took 25 minutes to make it.

As it gets chillier we all look for things to comfort us and warm up our houses. Soup does that for me. This is a good warm up into soup season as it gets colder and colder. I think i will make a butternut squash soup next, my favorite!

This is the easiest, most comforting soup ever!

All you need is:

  • 2 carrots diced
  • 2 sticks of celery diced
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 3 cups of spinach
  • 1 package of tortellinis
  • 6 cups of chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon of basil
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

What to do:

  1. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat in a large stock pot or dutch oven. Once hot sautee the onion, carrots, and celery for about 5 minutes until soft. Add the garlic and season with salt and pepper, oregano, and basil.
  2. Stir in the 6 cups of chicken broth and I added about 2 cups of water as well. Bring to a boil. When ready to serve add the tortellinis to the boiling water and cook for another 3 minutes or according to your package. Lastly add the 3 cups of spinach.
  3. Ladle soup into bowls and serve with sprinkled cheese.
