This is SO easy and SO yummy!! Whenever I make this everyone wants the recipe: **edited with additional tips**


  • 1 TBS. Olive Oil
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 can (49oz) Chicken Broth
  • 1- 9oz. pkg. fresh tortellini (any kind ... found in deli section)
  • 1 can (14.5oz) diced tomatoes (sometimes I get Italian style)
  • 1 bunch fresh spinach
  • 6 fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • Fresh grated Parmesan Cheese


Saute garlic in olive oil until browned. Stir in broth and tortellini and bring to a boil. Simmer until tortellini is just tender ... about 5 minutes.

Add tomatoes, spinach, and basil. Simmer 2 minutes.

Serve in soup bowls and top with grated Parmesan Cheese. Is wonderful with a rustic bread.

I usually make a larger portion and add a lot more spinach. My kids devour it and get in tons of dark green veggies.

** You can add more broth if needed. You do not drain the tomatoes ... the liquid from the tomatoes adds to the flavor and the broth **

**Also, if there are left overs the tortellini swells up and absorbs a lot of the soup base ... it becomes not so soupy as a left over**

Great post! I LOVE soup too!!
