Brothy Tortellini soup with Spinach, Basil & White beans- a mouthwatering vegetarian soup that can be made in 25 minutes!

Scale

Ingredients

Garnish: Drizzle of olive oil, chili flakes, pecorino romano or parmesan

Instructions

Heat oil in a large heavy bottom pot or dutch oven over medium-high heat.  Add the onion and saute 3-4 minutes stirring. Add the celery and garlic, lower heat to medium, and saute 5-6 minutes until celery is tender. Add the broth and turn heat to high, bringing to a boil. Add salt and Italian seasoning.

Once boiling add the fresh tortellini and simmer until cooked, 4-5 minutes (look at package directions for timing). Add the white beans and simmer just a few minutes until they are heated through.  Turn heat off. Add the chopped fresh spinach and the basil. Give a stir.  Add a little squeeze of lemon ( 1-2 teaspoons).

Taste, adjusting salt and pepper.  You want the broth slightly salty- the tortilla and beans will soak up much of it.

Serve in bowls with a drizzle of olive oil, pecorino cheese and a light sprinkle of chili flakes.

Notes

Feel free to use other canned or cooked beans.

Feel free to use other pasta (penne, etc., instead of tortellini) or a gluten-free pasta.

For an extra rich broth, add a parmesan rind to the broth.

Feel free to add leftover chicken if you like.
