Servings 6 servings
In a large soup pot, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add the onion, celery, carrots, green beans, garlic, oregano, and red pepper flakes. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes or until the veggies begin to soften, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper.
Add the vegetable broth and increase heat to bring to a boil, then slightly lower heat to a gentle boil. Allow the veggies to cook for 5 minutes.
Add the tortellini to the gently boiling soup and cook 5 to 7 minutes, or according to package instructions. Stir in the diced tomatoes and spinach leaves. Cook for another 3 to 5 minutes.
Serve warm! It tastes great with freshly grated parmesan cheese and crunchy bread.
- You can store leftovers in a glass container in the fridge for up to 3 days. This soup would also freeze well. Leave a couple inches of headspace to allow the soup to expand while freezing.
- Reheat the soup in a saucepan over medium-low heat or in the microwave until warmed through. If the tortellini absorb some of the liquid over time, add some water or broth when reheating.
- To increase the protein content, add white beans or shredded chicken or turkey.
