Serving Size: 1 (349 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"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."
"Loved this soup...I used cheese tortellini and also sprinkled with mozza in addition to parmesan. Very quick and easy... Thanks Catherine"
"Great soup! I added fresh basil leaves and also another can of diced tomatoes. Fantastic!"
"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 (Recipe #44232 - 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!"
"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!"
"Good easy soup, but it had a bit too much spinach for my taste. I would cut the spinach down to 6-8 ounces and make sure to chop it fairly fine so it's easy to eat in a soup. I used the full 6 cups of chicken broth."
"Great easy recipe. Added an extra can of tomatoes. Fresh basil and 1/4 tsp red chili flakes."
"Great winter soup. Changed whole tomatoes to stewed tomatoes and chopped them with kitchen shears. Cooked cheese tortellini seperately, added to the bottom of the bowl, added soup (made as directed) then sprinkled with parmesean cheese. Delicious. Even better the next day. Definitely will add to soup rotation. Thank you for posting."
"EXCELLANT!!! I added hot turkey sausage links, sliced, and fresh spinach. I wilted the spinach in oil olive before hand and used whole wheat 3 cheese tortellini and served with garlic breadsticks. It tasted awesome! Quick to put together. A keeper for sure!"
"This soup was good. I added a bit of tomato paste to thicken it up a bit. I also added Italian seasonings. Thanks for sharing!"
"I was happy to find a new soup that everyone in my family likes! I added fresh basil from my garden and about 1/2 can of tomato sauce.Great recipe!"
"This was delicious & so easy to make. I added Italian seasoning & doubled the can of tomatoes by accident. It was still great. The cheese was not necessary."
"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!"
"So good! I used 4 garlic cloves total since I love garlic and a pinch of crushed red pepper with salt and pepper while sauteeing the onion. So delicious, thanks for the yummy recipe."
"Easy. Yummy. Nutritious! I used fresh spinach and fresh cheese tortellini. This would be good with some fresh sliced mushrooms added. I will try that next time. So good on a cold day! Thanks for posting!"
"Great soup and so healthy! I make this for lunch a lot as I love soup, 24/7. Great flavors. I don't think it needs the parmesan cheese but that's personal preference. Added some dried basil but next time I'll add fresh chopped basil just before serving. Also used low sodium chicken broth to reduce the salt content. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. Just perfect."
