I made this soup for a neighborhood soup swap and it was a huge hit. This is hearty enough for a meal. It's flavorful and filling. Definitely a keeper.

Used a couple of substitutions, such as fresh poached chicken thighs (using Sara Moulton's method), and frozen Angie's tri-color tortellini. Increased the cooking time by a few minutes to account for the frozen stuff, and forgot the Parmesan. Used sliced baby bellas. No one cared about any of these details, because they all loved it! Very savory and protein rich! I'd argue that this is NOT a meal starter, nor is it light: it's hearty and fills you up exactly as you'd want from a good soup. Had it with fresh-baked corn muffins - and amazingly, there were muffins leftover because everyone had filled up on the soup. This recipe is a keeper...

This one is for sure being added to the quick weeknight dinner list. I did add a little salt & some red pepper flakes to give it a little kick. So yummy & satisfying.

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.
