Light and Creamy Tortellini Soup

It’s a good week for soup in NC. We recently came across this recipe and it’s become a favorite! You can find the original at A Spicy Perspective. It’s super light and almost refreshing, all while still being comforting and filling. Also- super simple, because, duh.

Creamy Tortellini Soup


1 Tbsp. olive oil

1 large sweet onion, diced

1 red bell pepper, diced

2 c. sliced carrots

2 gloves of garlic, minced

9 c. chicken broth

8.8oz package tortellini

1/3 c. heavy cream

1 c. baby spinach, packed

1 1/2 tsp. dried thyme

1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper

  1. In a large pot over medium heat,  add oil and add diced onion, cooking for about 5 minutes, or until soft. Add carrots and bell pepper and garlic. Sauté for another 5 minutes.
