This is super easy and very flavorful. I substituted low-sodium chicken broth for vegetable broth because it was what I had on hand and I think it enhanced the flavor without drastically increasing the sodium content. My husband said that it was OK but that he liked a similar recipe, Rustic Italian Tortellini Soup (also a Taste of Home recipe), much better. I kind of agree with him but I really liked how light and healthy this soup is. It's low fat, reasonable carb level and low sodium if you choose. I may, based on an earlier reviewer's recommendation, add a can of white beans for additional fiber and protein next time I make this soup. Still, it's delicious as is!

My husband is not a soup lover but he loved this recipe! I sliced three links of pre-cooked Italian sausage and added that at the end, it made it more hearty with more Italian flavor. Delish!

This is really quick and tasty. Great option for a meatless meal. Having said that, I might try this with chicken broth sometime, just out of personal flavor preference.

I do not like cooked tomatoes though I will eat them on a sandwich. Tomato sauce is OK. I think I will try it with chicken broth. Recipe looks great otherwise.

This was filling and delicious, and so easy to make! I only had two cans of vegetable broth, so I added one can of chicken broth. It worked just fine.

This sounds like a good soup to make for the winter time. The only change I will have to make is using sausage tortellini instead of the cheese due to food allergies.

Love this soup, it's so easy. I just toss in whatever tortellini I happen to have and it always turns out great.

Tasty. I used a quart of homemade tomato juice instead of the canned tomatoes because that's what I had on hand. I added soup base instead of broth, and added a little water to the juice along with minced garlic, basil, oregano, thyme, dash of chili powder and ground pepper. I used dried tortilini but fresh would have been better.When the pasta was almost ready, I added the spinach and parmesan cheese, and some canned chicken breast. I served it with savory onion muffins. Yum.

Have been making this for a long time. So quick- I always add a little more tortellini and fresh basil if I have it. All my friends have asked for the recipe and they make as well.
