I cooked and shredded loads of chicken over the weekend, and it was raining...soup seemed like the perfect solution! I decided to venture away from our traditional favorites- Chicken Wild Rice, Chicken and Dumpling or Chicken Tortilla. I created my own version of Italian Wedding soup, with chicken :)
For this recipe you will need:
1 can of Petit Diced Tomatoes with Garlic and Olive Oil
1 Bag of Baby Spinach
1 pkg of Frozen Tortellini
8 cups of Chicken Broth/Stock
1 1/2 cups of Shredded Chicken
Red Pepper Flakes, Salt and Black Pepper, Italian Seasoning
Start by heating the canned tomatoes and roughly chopped spinach until the spinach begins to wilt (I also added 1 1/2 tsp of Red Pepper Flakes).
Add in chicken broth and chicken. Add about 1 tsp of Italian Seasoning. Bring to a boil.
Once boiling, add tortellini. Cook about 6 minutes, or until tortellini float. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. I use LOTS of black pepper :)
Serve topped with a little fresh grated Parmesan Cheese. Yum!
