This was great! I made a few changes, but kept the basics essentially the same. I made a double recipe, but did not double the spinach. I omitted the wine. I added two cups frozen mushrooms and two cups prepared matchstick carrots. I then cooked the torellini directly in the boiling soup for the last 10 minutes. I forgot to add the Parmesan at the end. It was still fantastic! Thanks for sharing!

Great tasting soup. So easy to make, yet the combination of ingredients gives a complex flavor like it's been simmering for hours. I used refrigerated cheese tortellini instead of the dried.

Delicious and easy -- my test of a great family recipe. Doesn't need the red wine. Can use jarred minced garlic. Even delicious without the parmesan. I use chicken broth instead of veg.

This was really delicious! I love that this soup has a larger ratio of vegetables. I also use chicken broth instead of vegetable broth when I make this.

Fast, easy, very healthy. I used chopped spinach, but would use whole leaves next time, as shown in the photo, for better texture. Very lost cost soup to make as well.

This was delicious! I was hankerin' for tortellini soup with spinach and this is the best one I've had. I used my own home-made beef/cheese stuffed tortellini (threw it in 5 minutes before serving and brought to a good boil) and didn't use the red wine, it's really good without it too! Next time will use red wine, this is a keeper! :) Thx for the recipe kburie! (resubmitted...forgot to rate, sorry)

Wonderful - I substituted chicken broth and used the "dry" tortellini and the parmesan. Also added in a fresh tomato because it needed to be used. It is delicious and a nice healthy lunch!

Awesome, a godsend. Easy, healthy, colorful, and huge flavor. You don't need the parmesan. Recommend chic broth instead of veg. Definitely agree with the "dry" recommendation for tortellini -- far tastier than refrigerated kind. A keeper.

Good and easy! I use frozen tortellini, fresh spinach, and a large (28oz) can of diced tomatoes. Delicious!

I made this exactly as written but wasn't happy with the flavor. It was very bland. It needed salt. I added Knorr chicken broth (powder), and used refrigerated tortellini instead of dry. I also added Italian sausage. Next time I don't think I would use vegetable broth, it's not very flavorful.
