Tortellini Spinach Soup with Parmesan

This Tortellini Spinach Soup with Parmesan takes only 20 minutes on the stove top and is packed with incredible warm and comforting flavor. It uses 7 simple ingredients: tomato sauce, stewed tomatoes, garlic, Italian seasoning, chicken broth, spinach, and tortellini. Serve with crusty bread or a side salad for a complete, cozy weeknight winter meal. It can easily be adapted for the slow cooker, too.

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 7 garlic cloves, minced (about 2 tbsp)
  • 16 cups chicken broth (or 16 cups water + 14 cubes bouillon)
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 1 can stewed or diced tomatoes (28 oz)
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 27 oz frozen tortellini
  • 8 oz fresh spinach, chopped
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan

Instructions

  • In a large stock pot or dutch oven, heat the oil and add the garlic, cooking for 1 minute.
  • Add the chicken broth, tomato sauce, tomatoes, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Cover and simmer on high heat for 10 minutes.
  • Add tortellini and spinach and simmer 4 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and add Parmesan, stirring to evenly distribute cheese. Serve with extra Parmesan, crusty garlic bread, cheese toast, or a side salad.

Notes

I chop the spinach into small pieces so children (or adults!) who are picky with eating vegetables don't notice it or don't mind it as much.
You can use frozen chopped spinach too instead of chopping your own. Make sure to squeeze out excess water.
If using stewed tomatoes, use a meat masher when they are simmering to break them into smaller chunks.
