Spinach-Tortellini Soup

The cold evenings call for a warm dinner for the family!

Personally I love making soups for the colder days, they fill us up and usually there are left-overs for the next days lunch.

Pick up a loaf of crispy bread to sop up the extra broth, perhaps rubbed with some garlic!

When you need a quick and flavorful dinner, turn to this easy tortellini soup with spinach. Refrigerated cheese tortellini bulk up the soup and cook in just minutes. The tortellini can be delicate, so be careful when stirring the soup to avoid them falling apart.
