Spinach Tortellini Soup

This is SOOO good--probably my favorite soup, especially when I'm sick. There's no meat, which is nice because I don't have to thaw it out first.

10 oz. package of frozen chopped spinach
1 med. onion
2 cloves garlic
1 quart chicken broth
14 oz. can diced tomatoes
2 cups frozen cheese tortellini
3 Tbsp. parmesan cheese
1 egg
salt and pepper to taste

Throw the spinach in the microwave and microwave it on high for 3-4 minutes until thawed. While that's thawing, heat a soup pot over medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Chop and add onion and garlic. Cook until soft. Add chicken broth and 2 cups water. Bring to a boil. When the spinach is done thawing, put it in a clean towel, and squeeze out all the liquid by wringing the towel out. Add the spinach to the pot, as well as the tomatoes. Bring back to a boil. Add the tortellini. In a small bowl, beat the egg and and the cheese, salt and pepper to the egg, combining it all together. When the tortellini is done cooking (just takes a couple minutes), stir and slowly drizzle the egg mixture into it. Keep stirring so that the egg doesn't scramble.


  1. What is the size of the serving considered? One cup or 2 cups? Btw, I made this last night & it was SUPER YUMMY! Thanks for the recipes

    1. I'm not sure what the serving size is... I just divide the recipe into four portions and each portion is one serving. Probably about 2 cups?
