Tortellini Vegetable Soup

Tortellini soup

This is a great one pot dinner that comes together super fast. Or shall I say souper fast. Forgive me. You can load this soup up with any veggies you like in soup. I used green beans, carrot and spinach (onions and garlic of course) and cheese tortellini. The full recipe is on my site (link in bio too). I know  I mentioned that this is a one pot meal, but I feel the need to reiterate that point. On a busy weeknight this soup that feels like a meal can be your friend

Ingredients

  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 6-7 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3-4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3-4 carrots sliced
  • 2-3 handfuls of fresh spinach or just use defrosted frozen
  • 1 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 quart chicken stock
  • 1 9 ounce package cheese tortellini (see note)
  • 2 cups green beans, trimmed and cut into 1-2 inch pieces
  • Red pepper flakes to taste
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • Fresh basil, 1 sprig left whole and the rest chopped for garnish
  • Parmesan cheese for serving
  • (I had some leftover roasted grape tomatoes that I threw in at the last minute. But you can totally leave them out.)

Instructions

1

In a large pot or Dutch oven, saute the onion and carrots until soft. Add the garlic and as soon as it sizzles a little add the tomatoes and the stock. Add one large sprig of basil. Let it all simmer a bit for about 5 minutes. At this point, taste for seasoning. This will depend on how salty your stock and tomatoes are. Add the green beans and cook until they are a little soft, about 5 minutes. Stir to combine. Once warmed through, add the tor-tellini and cook as long as package says. Remove from heat, and add the parsley , the chopped basil and red pepper flakes. Remember that the tortellini will continue to cook in the warm broth, so serve as soon as they are cooked through. Divide into bowls and top with Parmesan cheese and more basil and parsley .
