We discovered this delicious Tortellini & Spinach Soup at a holiday family gathering. I thought my oldest daughter was going to dive head first into the soup pot, she liked it so much. I wasn’t sure she was going to allow others to enjoy it along with her.
I slowed her down and told her I would make it for dinner. She nagged me for weeks until I gave in.
My aunt gave me her recipe, but I’ve also seen it all over the internet, so I’m not sure of the original source. It is SUPER easy to prepare and is adaptable to your family’s tastes. My daughter requested shrimp in the soup while my aunt served it with browned sausage. Either way, it is quite delicious!
