Tortellini Soup with spinach and beans


After having a lazy Sunday I was craving something comforting for dinner. I came up with this recipe by just adding all of my favorite ingredients into one pot. It turned out delicious!

Ingredients:

  • 1 pint of grape tomatoes -halved
  • 6 cups of fresh spinach
  • 9 oz package or tortellini (I used these)
  • 1/2 white onion diced
  • 4 stalks celery diced (keep the leaves)
  • 2 large carrots diced
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 cans of cannellini beans (I used these)
  • 2 -32oz. boxes of chicken broth  (I usually like to make my own stock, but this works instead if you’re in rush)
  • 3 tablespoon fresh dill chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons e.v.o.o
  • 3 cubes vegetable bouillon
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • Crushed red pepper to taste
  • Parmesan cheese to taste

Steps:

1.) Start by adding the olive oil to a large pot and heat on medium high for about a minute, then add the onions. Let the onions sweat for about 3-5 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the celery, carrots, onions, oregano, dill and tomatoes. Turn heat down to medium and let cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring frequently.  photo

2.) Turn heat to medium low, add the chicken broth, bouillon and beans, cover and let cook for 30 minutes .

3.) Add salt and pepper to taste. Add the tortellini- cook by bringing the heat back up to medium high for about 3 minutes, and the tortellini will be cooked. Add the spinach at the very end.

4.) I sprinkled some Parmesan cheese and crushed reds into my bowl. Enjoy! photo (1)
