Spinach Tortellini Soup

Spinach Tortellini Soup

Recently, I was reading a blog that I enjoy and came across this yummy recipe, so I just had to share it here with SkyMoms... I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Spinach Tortellini Soup
1/2 cup chopped onion
3 fresh garlic cloves, pressed
2 cans chicken broth (or 4 chicken bouillon cubes dissolved in 4 cups hot water)
1 cup uncooked cheese-filled tortellini (frozen, fresh, or dried)
1 can petite-diced tomatoes, undrained
1 t. dried basil leaves
1 package (10 oz) frozen chopped spinach, thawed (I use about 1/2 package)
 Fresh Parmesan cheese, grated
Salt for individual servings, if desired

In a large saucepan, heat olive oil over medium heat.  Add onion and garlic.  Cook until tender, about 2 minutes.  Careful!  Garlic burns easily.

Add broth immediately and bring to a boil.  Add tortellini and cook according to package directions until tender.  Do not drain.  

Stir in tomatoes, basil, and spinach.  Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes or allow to cook very low and covered until ready to serve. 

Using a Microplane Zester, grate fresh Parmesan cheese over individual servings of soup.  Have each person salt to taste, if desired.  

Yield:  4-5 servings
