How to Make Vegetable Tortellini Soup
To make it, I drizzle my olive oil into my Dutch oven set over medium heat. Then, I add my onion and carrots to the olive oil and cook until the onions are just translucent, about 3 minutes. Then, I stir in my garlic and cook until just fragrant, about another minute.
Now, if you are not using onions and garlic in your Vegetable Tortellini Soup, you can omit this step and omit the olive oil as well. I love to make it both ways depending on what I’m in the mood for! 🙂
Then, I add in my tomatoes, vegetable broth and my Italian Seasoning Mix. If you don’t already have this mixed up and on hand, this is a great time to throw it all together and store in a spice jar or even a small Mason jar. It is delicious added to so many dishes for a quick addition of flavor.
Once the vegetables are all tender, I add in my zucchini and the tortellini and cook until the tortellini is cooked through, about 5 to 7 minutes. Then, I remove from the heat and stir in my spinach. The heat from the soup will wilt the spinach perfectly into to your Vegetable Tortellini Soup.
I love to serve my Vegetable Tortellini Soup with freshly grated Parmesan cheese on top, too. Oh boy is it delicious!
