On The Menu


There is rain in the forecast ... lots of it.
So I thought it would be a good time for some soup.

Tortellini Spinach Soup

I just happened to have a bag of baby spinach that I needed to use.
There was tortelinni in the freezer. 
 A can of tomatoes from the pantry.
And, I was lucky, 32oz of vegetable broth.
That's all I needed.

I found this recipe in Fine Cooking years ago and it remains one of my
favorite quick and easy recipes.
You can find my original post here.
And, it's pretty too.

I chopped a small onion and let it cook in some olive oil.
Added 32 oz of vegetable broth.
The canned tomatoes.
A bag of baby spinach.
Letting that cook until the spinach was wilted.
Then I added the tortellini.
Let all of that come to a boil and the tortellini fully cook.

Sprinkle with a little parmesan cheese and serve.

Tortellini Spinach Soup

Quick and easy.

Wishing YOU well and much joy!
