Want To Make A Quick, Healthy Pasta Dinner? Tortellini & Zucchini Soup Is The Answer!

My Zucchini obsessions continues as I present this tasty dish! On my endless quest of eating better, I stumbled upon this recipe on webmd.com and it was love at first sight. I am a sucker for Vegetable soup and Tortellini so I knew I could not go wrong with this recipe. Tortellini & Zucchini Soup

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons
    extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 large
    carrots, finely chopped
  • 1 large
    onion, diced
  • 2 tablespoons
    garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon
    fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 2 14-ounce cans
    vegetable broth
  • 2 medium
    zucchini, diced
  • 9 ounces
    (about 2 cups) tortellini,, fresh or frozen, preferably spinach-&-cheese
  • 4
    plum tomatoes, diced
  • 2 tablespoons
    red wine vinegar

Instructions:
Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add carrots and onion; stir, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is soft and just beginning to brown, 6 to 7 minutes. Stir in garlic and rosemary and cook, stirring often, until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Stir in broth and zucchini; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the zucchini is beginning to soften, about 3 minutes. Add tortellini and tomatoes and simmer until the tortellini are plump and the tomatoes are beginning to break down, 6 to 10 minutes. Stir vinegar into the hot soup just before serving.

My Adjustments:

Only adjustment I made was using three cheese tortellini instead of spinach & cheese (due to the grocery store running out and being too lazy to drive any place else lol.)

I hope you enjoy this recipe! If you’re a big Vegetable soup kind of person or a big fan of tortellini than you should find it delightful. Enjoy!
