Chicken Tortellini Soup

Cooler weather is beginning in my area.  As much as I love summer, fall weather, I do believe, is my favorite.  Crisp, cool air with the fresh smell of changing leaves.

I also love this time because I can start pulling out soup recipes I’ve wanted to try all summer long.  This one sounded so easy and delicious that I whipped up it this week with some leftover rotisserie chicken I had from another dinner.

I have to tell you, my picky son was quite sure he was going to hate this meal.  After a few tentative bits he said “Wow, this is really great!”  I was amazed!

Chicken Tortellini Soup

  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 9 oz. pkg frozen cheese tortellini
  • 1 1/2 cups diced cooked chicken
  • 14 oz diced tomatoes
  • 10 oz pkg frozen spinach
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1 tsp. dried basil
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

In large saucepan, melt butter and saute garlic for 2 minutes over medium heat.

Stir in broth and tortellini and bring to a boil.  Cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 5 minutes.

Add cooked chicken, tomatoes, frozen spinach, pepper and basil and simmer for 10-15 minutes.  Stir every 3 minutes or so, breaking up frozen spinach and blending into the soup.  Serve when heated through along with cheese to spoon over individual servings.

    Just wanted to say I’ve made this soup twice now and my family loved it. Thank you for sharing it. Very easy to make. The second time I made it I used fresh basil and I added a couple tablespoons of tomato paste as I like more tomato flavor, but that’s just my preference. I think this recipe lends itself well to making changes to suit personal taste.
