Easy Tortellini Spinach Soup

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Charmed

Dinner doesn't get much easier, or quicker, than this. It tastes even better reheated the next day. I got the recipe somewhere on the web, and it was supposedly from a student at a culinary school.

This was easy, fast, and fantastic. I subbed the liquid from a 14 oz. can of spinach for one cup of the chicken broth and made the rest of the recipe as written. It's delicious comfort food. My co-workers will go nuts tomorrow thinking I slaved all night making this.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large pot over high heat, combine the spinach and chicken broth.
  2. Heat to boiling and then reduce heat to low.
  3. Add the tortellini and let simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the tortellini is cooked to desired tenderness.
  4. Season with basil, garlic powder and salt and pepper to taste.
  5. NOTE: Instead of the garlic powder, I usually use pre-minced garlic I get in the jars.
  6. Also, I always use fresh tortellini for this, but I don't see why couldn't substitute dried, just adjust accordingly for the cooking time.
