Are you one of those people that finds it very annoying to have Christmas shoved down your throat before you can even digest your Thanksgiving meal? That’s me!!!!
Maybe you are one of those people that goes from Halloween to Christmas and skips Thanksgiving all together?!
Guess what?! I live with one of “those” people…my husband! Busted!!!
Not only did I catch him stringing up the lights but he was also blaring Christmas music…our poor, poor neighbors!
Don’t get me wrong, I am no Grinch, I love everything Christmas….just after Thanksgiving!! lol
So in keeping with my husbands holiday cheer I decided to play along and make a festive soup for dinner. This recipe is from Weight Watchers, I followed it loosely, click here for the original recipe.
Tortellini Tomato Spinach Soup
To a large pot I added about 6 cups of low sodium chicken broth and about 4 cups of water. This is almost double the amount in the original recipe, I loves lots of broth in my soups.
Then I added a large can of whole tomatoes that I diced up myself. You can buy tomatoes already diced, the fire roasted ones would work well. I just used what I already had on hand.
Next I added some dried oregano and brought the broth mixture to a boil.
Once it comes to a boil add the tortellini, I used frozen. Cook and stir often, once the tortellini floats to the top, you know it’s done.
Add the whole bag of spinach and cook another 2-3 minutes.
You can add some parmesan cheese but I chose to leave it out since the tortellini is already filled with cheese. This soup is so easy, fast and delicious!
Doesn’t this look like a big bowl of holiday cheer?!
Hopefully this will satisfy hubby’s holiday spirit until AFTER Thanksgiving!
