On days when Kelli comes home to sew, we often make soup. Both of us love soup but the men in our lives don’t really like it.
Recently we tried a new recipe that Kelli and I loved and Hubby even chimed in to say he liked it! Here is Chicken and Spinach Tortellini Soup.
Here’s the recipe:
1 1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms (we didn’t have fresh so used canned)
2 T butter
2 cloves minced garlic
4 cans chicken broth (we just used bullion and water)
1- 9oz package cheese tortellini
4 cup chicken
1 pack baby spinach coarsely chopped
1/2 t pepper
Parmesan cheese optional
Saute mushrooms, and butter until tender. Add garlic and cook one minute longer. Add chicken broth. Bring to a boil. Stir in tortellini and bring to a boil. Cook 7-9 minutes until tortellini is tender. Add chicken, spinach and pepper. Heat through. Ladle into bowls and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
As you can see from the picture, the soup is real hearty with not a lot of juice. I think that’s why hubby likes it!
