weight watchers tortellini soup recipe #simplestart 

A delicious but light soup with an Italian flavor simmered right in. Heavy on veggies and low in calories but not low in flavor this Tortellini Soup is perfect for chilly days or nights. I first found a recipe similar to this on weightwatchers.com but I didn’t care for the huge stewed tomatoes and felt it was missing some flavor, while this version is a little higher in calories and fat I think that it is still an amazingly healthy choice. Even though there are a lot of ingredients this is a very simple recipe to prepare and all the  flavors blend well together to create a filling and tasty lunch or satisfying dinner for any night of the week.  My husband threw some cooked Italian Sausage into his bowl- I’m thinking next time I make it if the family wants a meat-filled meal, I’ll add some Turkey or Chicken Italian Sausage for a little extra protein for them.

Ingredients:

8-10 oz. package Tortellini pasta-dried, frozen, or fresh

3 cups chicken broth (we use low sodium)

1 cup water

1-14 oz. can diced tomatoes

3 carrots

1 small onion, diced

2 stalks celery

1 ½ cups fresh spinach,chopped

¼ cup Parmesan cheese (use reduced fat for less calories)

3 cloves garlic,crushed

 1 tsp. Basil

1 tsp. Oregano

1 tsp. Rosemary

1 tsp. Black pepper

1 Tbsp. olive oil

Add in tortellini pasta, spinach and Parmesan cheese- simmering for an additional 15 minutes, stirring several times during simmer.
