One of the easiest homemade soups that you will ever make! Tortellini Soup with Spinach is so satisfying with delicious flavours. An easy one-pot recipe that is sure to become a favourite!
You are going to love the simplicity of this soup. One pot - yes, no need to sauté anything. The ingredients go into a big pot and you end up with a big beautiful pot of satisfying, delicious soup! Perfect for a cool winter day.
This is definitely what I would consider a main course soup. A side salad and some crusty bread such as Cheddar and Herb Soda Bread or this amazing Herbed Beer Bread and you have yourself a full meal.
I used fresh spinach in this recipe but have made this many times with chopped frozen spinach. There are many variations that you could create with this recipe. I like to use frozen veggies in this recipe for convenience and cheese tortellini. You could use any combination of fresh veggies and meat tortellini if you wanted to.
I hope you will enjoy this recipe as much as our family does! If you're lucky enough to have leftovers, store them covered in the refrigerator. The tortellini will soak up a lot of the liquid overnight and you will have to add in some chicken or vegetable stock when you heat it up.
How to make Tortellini Soup with Spinach
1. In a large pot or Dutch oven, bring canned tomatoes, chicken broth, Italian seasoning and frozen vegetables to a boil over medium-high heat.
2. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
3. Add in tortellini and spinach and return to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
4. Season with salt and pepper to taste. (I have not added specific amounts here because it will depend on the type of canned tomatoes and chicken broth that you are using. If you're using low-sodium varieties of both, then you will want to add approximately ½ tsp. of salt or more to taste). Top with freshly grated Parmesan cheese if desired.
