Easy Vegetable Tortellini Soup

This vegetable tortellini soup was an easy to throw together dinner that was meat-free Рbut not vegetarian Рbecause I used chicken stock.  you could VERY easily use water or vegetable stock if you like to make it a vegetarian meal.

Cooking the tortellini in the soup gave it that creamy tomato soup look, but the flavor was outta sight – definitely a great cold night’s dinner or lunch!

Easy Vegetable Tortellini Soup


  • 2 quarts chicken stock or broth
  • 1/2 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 20oz can whole peeled tomatoes, I love good San Marzanos in this (Cento brand)
  • 2 stalks celery, sliced
  • 3 large carrots, halved and sliced
  • 1 zucchini, cut into 1/2" cubes
  • 1 16oz bag frozen tortellini
  • 1 c fresh spinach


  1. Pour your stock in a large dutch oven.
  2. Add in all the chopped vegetables, garlic and the tomatoes in their sauce, i smush the tomatoes up with my hands, or you can cut them if you like.
  3. When the carrots are completely cooked, add in the tortellini and bring back to a boil.
  4. When the tortellini are cooked, turn off the heat and mix in the spinach.
  5. Serve right away, my hubby loves to put grated parmesan cheese on top.
