This is the easiest soup I have ever made. Not that I usually make soup, but it's almost as easy as the "just add one can of water and microwave" soup. And it's goooood. The original recipe, posted on Prevention.com, uses only 4 ingredients. I added a few more spices because, hey why not?
- 4 cups boxed chicken stock
- 9 ounces cheese tortellini (Buitoni)
- baby spinach
- parmesan cheese
optional: red pepper flakes, salt, pepper, basil
Bring the chicken stock plus 1 cup water to a boil in a saucepan. Add the tortellini and reduce heat to simmer; cook until the pasta is tender. Stir in as much spinach as desired until just wilted. (I then added my spices... the red pepper flakes were a must for me! It just needed some more flavor.) Sprinkle a little parmesan in each bowl when you serve it. Done!
This recipe barely takes 10 minutes, and each bowl is only about 250 calories!
