CHICKEN TORTELLINI SOUP

 This is a very easy soup to make and tastes DELIZIOSO!
I love soup, hot or cold weather.  Add a salad and a dinner roll and you have a nice meal!



3T olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
3 stalks celery, minced
3 carrots, peeled and chopped
1 large onion, diced
10 oz. box frozen spinach ( unthawed)
2 cans cream of chicken soup & 2 cans water
32 oz. chicken broth
1 roasted chicken
family size pkg of cheese tortellini, half cooked
1 tsp. salt
pepper to taste
dash or two of thyme seasoning

  1. Put olive oil in bottom of large soup/stock pan
  2. Saute' garlic, celery, carrots and onions until tender
  3. Add frozen spinach.  Break up as you cook
  4. Continue to saute' until spinach thaws, and heats up
  5. Add cream of chicken soup and water
  6. Add chicken broth 
  7. Break apart chicken and add bite sized pieces
  8. Add seasonings
  9. Add partially cooked tortellini
  10. Simmer for 15-20 minutes

 Note: It's better to eat this soup a few hours after it's made so the broth soaks into the noodles.  Tastes even BETTER the next day!

  2. I never met a soup I didn't like! And this kind of weather almost dictates it. Thanks for sharing.
