Looking for a delicious meal to warm you up on a cold winter day? 

Give this tasty soup a try! It's currently zero degrees here in central Minnesota and a big pot of soup is something my family always craves.

This soup is a 30 minute recipe and when served with some crusty bread or a grilled cheese, it's a complete and filling meal. The flavors are simple, but each bite has you wanting another.

If you're a meat lover, you could always add some sausage or rotisserie chicken breast and if spinach isn't your thing, try kale or skip it completely.

There are so many things you can do to make this recipe your own, or make it brand new every time you make it.

The leftovers are great for a quick lunch the next day.

Recipe tips:


  • Store for up to three days in the refrigerator in an airtight container.
  • You can cook the tortellini separately and add to each bowl, instead of cooking in the soup. Cooked macaroni pasta would also work well.
  • If you'd like to cut the acidity of the tomatoes, add 1-2 teaspoons of sugar when adding the diced tomatoes.
