    Great low cal and healthy meal. My picky daughter is not crazy about spinach but I thought I would give this a try. She LOVED it. I used left over chicken and it came out great. Thanks for sharing.

    Nice, tasty & easy. I didn't use the low fat ingredients, as I don't particularly care for them--I went with full fat (except I used 1% milk). I wasn't sure about the tortellini directions as it said to "follow package" directions but to use 1 can chicken broth...well the directions call for 2 quarts of water so I wasn't sure if I were suppose to omit that much water or just use some water, some broth (which is what I did). I will add some extra veggies next time too...I like the idea of some carrots. Thanks! I'll make this again.

    Easy,easy,easy with great flavor! We really loved this soup. I had to use about a cup more chicken broth than called for as my soup was very thick, almost stew like. The leftovers reheat very well. Thanks for sharing a great dish!

    Very good soup. I left out the skim milk. I omitted the tortellini/subbed orzo. Added: extra veggies: garlic,carrots,scallions, my turkey stock. I used 2 cans of cream of chicken soups and just added leftover frozen thanksgiving turkey meat. Thank God this recipe uses up the last of it!! LOL!
