Soup in a flash!

Another quick-weeknight-especially-on-days-I’m-in-the-office dish!  This one seriously couldn’t be easier.  It’s a great idea to keep homemade stock in the freezer for times like this – or, you can definitely use a store bought one.

Either way, this can be on the table in about 20 minutes and tastes delicious!  Perfect for the chilly weather we’ve been having 🙂

Quick Tortellini Soup
6 cups chicken stock
1 cup frozen chopped spinach
1 bag frozen tortellini (I use cheese but meat is fine)
1 cup chopped carrots (I didn’t have any the night I took this pic but normally add them in)
freshly ground pepper
grated pecorino romano cheese

Place stock in a medium size dutch oven and bring to a boil.  Add spinach, tortellini, carrots and pepper, bring to a boil, then simmer and cover.  Cook for about 10 minutes.

Spoon into bowls, sprinkle with cheese and serve.

Serves 3-4.
