- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 large carrot, diced
- 1 medium celery rib/stalk, diced
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 teaspoons dried Italian herb blend
- 1 (28 ounce) can Tuttorosso Diced Tomatoes
- 4 1/ 2 cups (32 ounces) of low sodium vegetable broth
- 1 (16 ounce) package of cheese tortellini
- 1 cup heavy cream or half and half
- 1 cup spinach, roughly chopped
- Sea salt, to taste
- Optional Toppings: Parmesan cheese, fresh basil, a small drizzle of olive oil, and/or bread
In a large pot, heat olive oil over low to medium heat and add in carrots, celery, and onions. Sauté until vegetables have softened, about 10-15 minutes. Add in garlic and Italian dried herbs and sauté until fragrant, about 2 more minutes. Add in tomatoes, then slowly pour in vegetable broth and stir to combine. Increase the heat to medium and once broth comes to a boil, add in cheese tortellini. Allow tortellini to boil until they are just about done, about 5-8 minutes. Then, reduce heat to low, stir in heavy cream and spinach, and let simmer for a couple more minutes. Add sea salt to taste.**
Ladle soup into bowl and top with a little fresh basil and some grated parmesan cheese or fresh bread.
**Note… as your soup cools, your soup will thicken a little more as your noodles absorb the liquid. Feel free to add a little water or vegetable broth to thin it out some.
