Christmas Tortellini & Spinach Soup

I made this soup for the first time in the summer, but when I saw its bright red and green colors, my first thought was what a perfect Christmas Eve dinner idea! —Marietta Slater, Justin, Texas

    I call this my Christmas Soup and we make it every winter. It's hearty enough to keep us full, but easy enough not to take up the day with a cooking project. Delicious and festive! One of my go-to meals each season.

    This is very simple but delicious soup recipe that I can make on a busy weeknight. Serve it with bread and salad. I usually use organic low sodium chicken broth and a can of diced tomatoes with roasted garlic and the flavor is very good. My kids love this soup.
