Simple Soup

I got this recipe from LB's annual family cookbook, though I made a few changes to make it cheaper to make. It was soooooo good.

Spinach Tortillini Soup

3 C water
2 chicken bouillon cubes
1 bag cheese tortellini
1 can diced tomatoes
1 box frozen spinach
2 tsp basil
salt and pepper
shredded Italian cheese

Boil the water, dissolve the bouillon cubes.
Add the tortellini and simmer about 5 minutes.
Mix in the tomatoes.
Drop in the frozen spinach. Stir the soup as the spinach thaws and breaks up.
Ladle into bowl and top with some cheese.
Add basil and salt and pepper to taste when spinach is thawed.


  1. You must be reading my mind! I was just going to email you to see if you had any cheap, easy recipes that I could try out! We are getting bored of the same old same old. : ) Email me if you've got anything good.

  2. That's funny, because I just bought tortellini yesterday to make this same soup. Although I don't think I've added tomatoes before, so I'll have to try that.
