Remember that spinach tortellini soup I said didn't freeze well? Even if it doesn't freeze well, it's still really yummy and simple to make. In fact, every time I make it I'm amazed at how easy it is to put together. Seriously. It also achieves that all important balance for a soup of being light yet filling at the same time.
This makes about 4 hearty servings.
- 1 small white onion, chopped
- 2 carrots, peeled and thinly sliced (about 1 cup)
- 5 cups chicken broth
- 9 ounces cheese tortellini
- 6 ounce bag of fresh spinach
Combine onion, carrot and broth; bring to a boil. Add tortellini, reduce heat, stir and simmer 4 minutes. Add spinach; stir and simmer 4 minutes longer until carrots are tender. Top with parmesean cheese, if desired.
See? Really easy. Be sure to let me know if you make it! It's a great weeknight dinner for the springtime.
