I like to top bowls of this tasty soup with a little grated Parmesan cheese, and serve it with crusty bread to round out the meal. —Donna Morgan, Hend, Tennessee

TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min.
MAKES: 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) reduced-sodium chicken broth or vegetable broth
  • 1 package (9 ounces) refrigerated cheese tortellini
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes with green chilies, undrained
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry

Nutritional Facts

1 cup: 189 calories, 6g fat (3g saturated fat), 23mg cholesterol, 1074mg sodium, 25g carbohydrate (2g sugars, 3g fiber), 11g protein .

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, heat butter over medium heat; saute garlic until tender, about 1 minute. Stir in broth; bring to a boil. Add tortellini; cook, uncovered, until tender, 7-9 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and spinach; heat through. Yield: 6 servings.
The broth adds nearly 600mg sodium per serving, despite being reduced-sodium. Instead of broth, add 5-1/2 cups water plus just 3 tsp. reduced-sodium chicken bouillon granules. That brings total sodium to just 636mg per serving.

"AMAZING dish. Quick, easy, and TASTEY. I added 3 garlic cloves instead and used a four cheese tortellini. Low sodium chicken broth did well for me as well as low sodium italian herb diced tomatoes. Perfect for a cold winter evening!"

"Quick. Easy. And just a few ingredients. I used fresh spinach instead though. Yummy! If you are concerned about sodium, I used lower sodium broth to decrease it. It was still great."

"This soup was really very good. I used one bag of fresh baby spinach, stems removed & a larger pkg of tortellini. It had lots of flavor & very easy to make. The review below of one star should be removed as it is not a review but an opinion about sodium. Some people have no issues with sodium & for them it is not a concern. This person doesn't have to make this recipe."

"I made as written, with the addition of shredded boneless, skinless chicken. It was tasty, but I didn't think it was a winner. Just not outstanding flavorwise. My inlaws, who are both diabetic, did appreciate the recipe concept though."

"How can this soup possibly rate a five star when it contains nearly 1200 mg sodium. . .that's almost as much as a person should have covered over the entire day's food intake. OMG. . .I'd be in big trouble taking in this much sodium in only one serving."

"I have a recipe very similar. Try adding an 8 oz. block cream cheese cut into really small pieces, it melts better. I add everything at the start of the recipe and cook on low. It's so good."
