The Manfriend and I enjoyed this for dinner last week and it’s going into our regular rotation, especially looking forward to chilly fall and winter evenings: Fresh Spinach Tomato and Garlic Tortellini Soup.
This was a super quick fix, but because the tortellini gets soft quick, I don’t recommend it for an all day Crockpot dish.

I shared the recipe on Facebook a few days before actually making it and got a lot of great responses, including a recommendation to buy the smaller package of tortellini as the 20 oz. was enough to feed an army. Well placed, seeing as how we are a dinner for two. (I did forget to half the rest of the ingredients, including the water and stock, and everything still turned out wonderfully, so adjust as you see fit.)
I had the staples like EVOO, salt and pepper on hand and the grocery bill for this was less than $10. Save yourself some time and buy canned tomatoes that are already peeled. I really couldn’t taste any difference and should have saved my self the effort in blanching and peeling.
Enjoy this tasty dish and toss in some mushrooms if you’re feeling adventurous!
