Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 25 min
Serves: 4-6


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 sweet onion finely chopped
  • 3-4 garlic cloves
  • 2 1/4 cup canned diced tomatoes (I try to use up all the liquid and use less of the chunky tomatoes to make up the 2 1/4 cup)
  • 6 cups of vegetable or chicken stock
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 350 grams fresh cheese tortellini
  • 142 grams baby spinach, stems removed
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Parmesan cheese to garnish


  1. In a large soup pot heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and sauté until soft about 3-4 minutes. Add the garlic and continue sauté for another 30 seconds to a minute, until fragrant, but not burning.
  2. Add the tomatoes, vegetable stock, oregano, and sugar and bring to a boil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Add the tortellini and spinach and cook until noodles are soft (about 4-5 minutes) and spinach is wilted. Garnish with parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
