How to italian tortellini & spinach soup

Ingredients for Italian Tortellini & Spinach Soup

1 box 32 oz Chicken Broth

Open 2 can Garbanzo Beans & 1 can Garlic & Onion diced tomatoes

Rinse garbanzo beans in strainer under cold water.

On cutting mat, chop 2 stalks of celery

Now peel 2 carrots

Chop both carrots

Press 4 cloves garlic. Love garlic, add extra !

Peel 1 yellow onion. Do so by cutting off each end of onion & slice down the middle. Peel back outer skin.

Now chop onion. I love using The Pampered Chef Food Chopper. Fast, easy & tearless!

Now add the trio veggies to the Deep Covered Baker.

Add 1 tsp cooking oil to veggies. Mix with spatula until coated.

Cover baker & place in Microwave. Cook 5 minutes on High.

Remaining ingredients on deck to be added to the baker.

Veggies are now tender!

Time to add the seasonings. 1 Tbsp Italian Seasoning. I love our Pampered Chef seasonings. Now add Salt & Pepper to taste as well.

See all those seasonings? Yum! Now add you pressed garlic.

Mix until well blended.

Now add you can of diced tomatoes.

As you can see, I forgot to take pic of adding garbanzo beans to the baker. But do that now!

Now add chicken broth.

1 pkg Tortellini,

All well blended & ready for the microwave again.

13 minutes in microwave on High

Ahh, while we wait .. Nice glass of wine. I love Moscato!

Out of microwave ! Time for the last step...

Add 1 bag of baby spinach. You may have to do 1/2 the bag at a time. Then mix and than add the remaining of the bag. Like less spinach, only add half the bag.

Cover & let sit. The heat from the soup will wilt the spinach. To speed process you can put in micro for another few minutes.

Finished & ready to serve. Some fresh grated Parmesan Cheese is nice on top of each serving.
