Tortellini Soup with Spinach, Tomatoes & Garlic


Tortellini Soup

This is one of my favorite simple soup recipes.  It is so easy to prepare, and it is a soup our whole family enjoys.  I also use vegetable broth to make this a vegetarian recipe.


  • butter or olive oil
  • 6 to 8 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 4 cups vegetable broth (or chicken broth)
  • 6-8 oz tortellini (we have also used mini ravioli, which the kids are a big fan of!)
  • 14 oz can diced tomatoes (keep the juice)
  • 8-10 oz frozen spinach (defrosted) or chopped fresh spinach
  • Optional: basil, Parmesan cheese, onions


Chop the garlic and saute in butter or olive oil.  I love garlic, so I use quite a bit.  You can also add onion.  I often make this when I am sick, so I use quite a bit of garlic and onions to reap the health benefits!

Sauteed Garlic

Add your 4 cups of broth and the contents of the can of tomatoes.  Bring to a boil.

    I make a version of this using Kale instead of spinach. It’s a hardier taste and holds it’s structure better.
