Ingredients

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 large clove garlic minced
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups low sodium chicken broth*
  • 1 14- oz can fire-roasted tomatoes
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1 12- oz package cheese tortellini
  • 6- oz bag fresh baby spinach
  • Fresh parmesan cheese to serve optional

Instructions

  • Place large soup pot over medium heat. Add 1 tsp olive oil to pot. Once oil is warm, add garlic and sauté for 30sec-1 min, or until fragrant.
  • Add broth, tomatoes, and seasonings. Bring to a simmer and continue to simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Add in dried packaged tortellini and bring to a gentle boil. Cook for 10 minutes (do not fully cook the tortellini yet, you want it al-dente).
  • Reduce to a simmer and add in spinach. Simmer for 5 minutes or until spinach is wilted and tortellini is completely cooked.
  • Divide into 4 bowls and top with freshly shredded parmesan cheese. Enjoy!

Notes

*You can also use all low sodium broth then add salt to taste, but I’ve found this combination to be the perfect amount of saltiness for my tastebuds.
