This was delicious, and I felt like I was doing something nice for myself eating it! Very healthy and simple. I used beef tortellinis, because my family likes them, and I had a can of stewed tomatoes. I also added a little pinch of basil and oregano. I would hold off on the cheese until you taste the soup. I like it better without. That is a matter of personal preferrence.

I made this for dinner last night with grilled ham and cheese sandwiches. (I have a husband who prefers soup and sandwich suppers to just about anything else.) This soup was delicious and superfast and easy. I used Muir Glen fire roasted tomatoes, which added a nice smoky flavor, and packaged fresh spinach. A definite keeper!

Wow, a great tasting, quickly prepared soup that tastes homemade. I used a 9 oz package of low fat 4 cheeses refrigerated ravioli and used a can of Contadina Italian diced tomatoes, and served this with warm garlic breadsticks. Delicious, thanks for posting!

Excellent, comforting soup that's fairly easy to put together! Not sure if any other users suggest this, but we usually make everything except for the tortellini, and then add as much tortellini as we need for the servings. The next day, assuming there's any leftovers, we heat up the base and just add more tortellinis...otherwise the pasta can deteriorate.

Can I first just say "WOW"!!! I made this last night for DH and he was floored! I only had Italian style diced tomatoes so i used them, i really should have put the full 6 cups of chicken broth... i used 5. i added some parsley, oregano, and fresh chopped basil. I served it with some bruschetta (Tomato and Basil Bruschetta - i added gorgonzola cheese to the top) and it was TO-DIE-FOR! Thank you so much!

We had to make a lot of additions to this soup, but we realized that prior to beginning cooking. Turned out amazing with additions of carrots, garlic powder, oregano, salt, pepper, hot italian sausage, and canellini beans. Great starting point for sure!

pretty good - next time, I'd add some sweet italian sausage & garlic - and some cheese - something to kick up the flavors a notch. :) Kids did eat it, even with the spinach!

Perfect for soup & salad night. We enjoyed every bite. I used 1/2 the spinach and 6oz. of the cheese tortellini cuz I prefer them cooked longer and they will swell up quite a bit more when cooked longer. I simmered the soup longer before adding the torts & spinach. It's a keeper! Thanks a bunch Spatchcock!
