Cheese Tortellini Soup

cheese tortellini soup

Taylor and Caiti were home this weekend for the Verity’s last concert and we had one of our old favorites—cheese tortellini soup.   I think my friend Sue first made it for me and then I just took the idea and figured it out for my family.    My finicky nieces even love it.  (Right, Hope-y? or is it only Marlea that likes it?)

Anyways, it’s easy, healthy-ish, fast, no crazy ingredients.

Caiti wanted me to write down the recipe.   Typing is faster.   And I thought you might like something fast and easy too!

So for posterity’s sake, I’ll even post on Sunday.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 T. olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, diced
  • 2 1/2 boxes of chicken stock (10 cups)
  • 1 bag of fresh spinach
  • 1 large bag or two small bags of cheese tortellini (our grocery store has it in the dairy section)
  • 1 28 oz can of San Marzano tomatoes (you can use another brand but these make the BEST soup)
  • 1 T. balsamic vinegar
  • 1-2  T. honey
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • {always add salt along the way and don’t wait until the end}

Here’s what you’ll do:

  • Saute the onions, celery and carrots in olive oil for 5-7 min or until the onions are translucent.
  • Add the diced garlic and sauté another 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the chicken stock, tortellini, tomatoes,  spinach, vinegar and honey.
  • Bring to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer until the pasta is tender.
  • Serve with grated parmesan cheese and crusty bread!

It’s even better for lunch the next day.   Ask Stevie, he knows :)

  1. This looks DELISH!  Ok I’m going to look for the tomatoes, but if I can’t, are they crushed, stewed, diced???   I KNOW my family will love this! YUM! :)

  2. Hi.  I just happened here from another blog, and have so enjoyed reading some of your entries.  Thanks!  I’ll be back to visit again.

  3. Yum-yum! I can’t wait for it to cool off a little so I can try this. I think it is one that we could get used to eating regularly and sounds dee-lish! Thanks for sharing with all of us!

  4. Looks so good and healthy. And you had me at crusty bread. Not to change the subject, but your ingredients have me thinking – are you going to plant a fall garden? Here in NC we are told that you can start planting carrots, broccoli and collard greens now. Have you ever?

  5. Thanks for sharing this recipe Edie!  I can’t wait to try it … pure deliciousness (I just know it! 😉

  7. Sissy, this is the best recipe.  Delicious, even for Hope and Corey, although they do eat around the spinach!  They both enjoy as well as Mark and Marlea.  I have made it several times, even this summer, it so good, that who cares if it’s 90 outside, we love it!  Thanks for sharing all your yummy recipes!

  8. Adding this to my Edie soup list right behind the blue cheese tomato soup.  I do plan to substitute some “no-chicken” broth which will make this yummy recipe vegetarian.  I may also go crazy and double up on the spinach with some spinach cheese tortellini.  I have an organic version that are micro tortellini which would make them easy to fit in a spoonful.

    Thanks for the great recipe!

  9. I’ve been makeng a recipe similar to this one for years and it’s always a hit. The main difference is that it begins with browned bulk Italian sausage. Your recipe is probably healthier  – but you may want to try the sausage edition sometime.

  10. Hey! I’ve had this! Thanks for you kind feedback. I miss you guys so much!!! I’m sure the girls will do great (and so will you). I’m enjoying watching all of the progress on your house and I’m so jelous and sad I won’t get to go in it and see the finished product:(
    Hey, what was the name of the decorating book you showed me once? It was a book you got after the fire.I hope you know which i’m talking about. I’m moving into my new house in two weeks. Hope you can watch our progress as well.

  11. Edie, I read this and thought it would resonate with you.  Thanks for the recipe!

  12. Thanks for the recipe! I made it last night for my family (even though it was warm outside!) My girls (10 and 11) came home from soccer practice and said MMMM! What smells so good? And even though one of them is very picky…she loved it! It’s a hit at our house and my husband can’t wait to try the leftovers…because you are right it is always better the next day! Thank you Edie!

  13. Hi Eddie,
    Can you tell me how many people this soup serves? I would love to make it for 8 people. Just wanted to make sure this recipe serves that amount??
    LOVE,
    Kari

  14. Edie, you are amazing! You are my idol! You can cook, create, DIY, manage, teach, love, write! And you are a God-fearing woman on top of all that. I’m not trying to embarrass you but you are so smart, I wish we were neighbors. I know we’d be friends. I’ll just have to be content to learn from continuing to read your blog. You are my favorite read EVER!

  15. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children.

    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
    “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
    pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  16. This was sooooo good!! I halved the recipe, and it was plenty for my husband and I, with leftovers for my lunch!! I also added anout a Tbsp of Cavenders Greek seasoning to cut the sweetness just a bit. Fabulous!

  17. I just made this except I used Wildtree (all organic spice) Hearty Spaghetti Blend and I used a can of Fireroasted tomatoes and left out the garlic. Although I could have added I think. Also, I did add some cooked mild Italian sausage that I had in the freezer (just a tiny bit) but it didn’t need it at all! Next time I am going to add more spinach:) It was making me nervous to add the whole bag!

  19. Hi Edie,

    Thanks for being such an inspiration in so many ways. My faith had become very weak and your words are helping to bring me back to where I want to be in my walk. Your down to earth transparency and the way you share your vulnerabilities really speak to me. I look forward to every next thing you write. Thank you Edie.

    Now…I’ve got a question…could this be done in the crock pot? I’m thinking the tortellini would get mushy. What about simmering everything in the crock pot all day and adding the tortellini when I get home? What do you think “O’ wise one”?
