Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup sliced baby carrots
  • 3/4 cup chopped celery
  • 3/4 cup diced white or yellow onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh Italian flat leaf parsley
  • 3 to 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon all purpose seasoning or more to taste (I used Lawry's Seasoned Salt)
  • fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 8 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 12 ounces refrigerated cheese tortellini (about 3 cups)
  • 3/4 cup frozen peas
  • 3/4 cup frozen corn
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 2-1/2 cups cooked chopped chicken (I used a rotisserie chicken)
  • 1/4 cup shaved or shredded Parmesan cheese plus additional for garnish

Instructions

  • Add oil to a large soup pot or Dutch oven and place over MEDIUM HEAT. Add carrots, celery, onion, parsley, thyme sprigs, garlic, all-purpose seasoning, and fresh ground black pepper. Cook for about 10 minutes, or until veggies have softened, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the tomato paste and stir into the cooked veggies until well combined. Add the chicken broth and bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to MEDIUM-LOW. Add the frozen peas, frozen corn, and the tortellini and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or according to package directions. Add the chicken and the spinach. Stir for a minute or two, just until chicken is warmed through and spinach is wilted.
  • Remove the thyme stems. Stir in Parmesan and add additional seasoning, if desired.
  • Garnish individual servings with additional Parmesan, if desired.
