Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

This is a quick one-pot soup, which is very easy to put together.


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon, fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 8 ounce package cheese tortellini
  • 9 ounces fresh spinach leaves (about 5 cups)
  • 1 (15 ounce) can cannelloni beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese


Heat oil in large pot over medium high heat; add the onion, garlic, thyme and red pepper flakes, sauté until the onion is softens and the flavors meld together, about 3 minutes.

Add the chicken broth, raise the heat to high and bring to a boil. Stir in the tortellini, and cook for 4 minutes.

Reduce heat to a simmer and add the spinach and cannelloni beans, continue to simmer until the spinach has wilted, and pasta is tender, about 1 minute.

Ladle soup into bowls. Serve with Parmesan cheese on the side. Serves 5.


You can use any rinsed bean of your preference. Don't feel obligated to only use cannelloni beans.
