Cheese Tortellini Soup


I can't think of anything better than a warm hearty soup on a cold winter's night!  This soup is the perfect blend of everything I love about dinner: Pasta...cheese...and veggies.  It's a great alternative to pasta night...this tortellini goes a long way!  And I love that the spinach adds a nice healthy aspect too.

Cheese Tortellini Soup {from Annie's Eats}
Yield: 3-4 servings 

Ingredients:
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • ½ cup onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 (15 oz.) can diced tomatoes, with juices
  • 4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth (or chicken broth)
  • 9 oz. tortellini, any variety (fresh or frozen)
  • 3 cups fresh baby spinach, loosely packed
  • Salt and pepper
  • Grated Parmesan, for serving
Directions:
In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.  Add the onions to the pan and cook until beginning to soften, about 5 minutes.  Add in the garlic and cook, stirring frequently, just until fragrant, about 1 minute.  Mix in the oregano and diced tomatoes.  Add the broth to the pot.  Bring the mixture to a boil.  Add the tortellini to the pot and cook according to the package directions.  One minute before the tortellini is fully cooked, stir in the spinach.  Remove from the heat.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.  Serve warm with grated Parmesan as desired.

And it's super easy too...perfect for a weeknight dinner!  :)
Hope you enjoy!  Bon Appetit!

  6. I have had soup for the majority of my meals since this month started (not on a crazy diet kick, just that it's the only thing that sounds nice on a cold night!). This one will have to be added into the mix!
