Yum. Used fresh spinach and green beans and added carrots just because I had them.

I make soup once a week in the fall and winter and this soup is on the list! It is easy, meatless, and very filling. I would not hestitate to serve this at a casual dinner party. The only change I make is to use fresh spinach otherwise, I follow the recipe exactly.

This is a hearty, flavorful soup, that belies its ease of preparation. I like having a large repertoire of soups to enjoy during the cold-weather months, and this one fits in nicely. I use chicken tortellini instead of cheese (I don't eat dairy), but otherwise stick pretty close to the recipe. Freezes well.

This easy soup had a wonderful flavor! I used a pino grigio, spinach, and whole wheat cheese tortellini with great results. I'm adding this to my list of favorite soups and will make it again and again!
