"Fabulous!! My 4 children rated it 100 :) they loved it! I used what I had on hand. Used more fresh garlic (heaping soup spoon), canned white breast meat chicken, broth from canned chicken, 1 can chicken broth (added water and chicken bouillon to make up the full 4 cans total), 20 ounce pkg herb chicken tortellini, did not chop baby spinach and used fresh grated Parmesan cheese. Also added a bit if Cayenne pepper for kick. It is a hit! (Eating as I type this!) I also did not use low sodium chicken broth so it was nice and tasty."

"Made this on a whim one day and my family of 5 (hubby, 2 young boys and 1 baby girl) devoured it down to the last drop! Have made it several times since (at their request) and one day used a "white wine and herb" broth that I had in the pantry. The family cheered even louder with the added flavor. It's now become a family favorite and a great recipe to make when having company over. Delicious!"
