Tortellini Spinach Soup

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 6-8 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 6 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 9 ounces fresh or frozen cheese tortellini
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes, including liquid
  • 10 ounces spinach, washed and coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano, chopped
  • 1  egg
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper, to taste

In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.  Add the garlic and onion and sauté until fragrant, 2-3 minutes. Add the chicken broth; bring to a boil. Add the tortellini and cook halfway, about 5 minutes for frozen pasta, less if using fresh pasta. Add the can of tomatoes; reduce the heat to a simmer and cook just until the pasta is tender, about 4 minutes. Stir in the spinach and oregano and cook until wilted, 1-2 minutes. Meanwhile, whisk together the egg, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Drizzle into the soup and cook, stirring about 3 minutes more. Remove from heat and serve. Makes about 6 servings.

    Very flavorful! The recipe calls for one cup grated Parmesan cheese. After watching the video, it looks like I was supposed to use shredded Parmesan cheese. Also, I used half the amount of spinach (5 oz, 1 tub) and it was plenty!
