Cheese Tortellini Soup


  • 1lb ground meat (could use any you like, hamburger, turkey, chicken, sausage, etc.)
  • 1 bag of baby spinach
  • 19oz of frozen Tortellini
  • 1 8oz package of Cream Cheese (I don't use the reduced fat kind, but it would likely work the same)
  • 1 can of cut tomatoes (undrained)
  • 2 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • Shredded Mozzarella *Optional*
  1. Cook your ground meat thoroughly and drain. [I used hamburger meat with 2 cloves of minced garlic, oregano, salt, pepper, onion powder, and parsley. I didn't measure the spices, just eyeballed it. Was going for an ''Italian'' seasoning sort of flavor. Go with how much your family would like]
  2. With the drained meat in the pan on medium heat add the entire bag of spinach and wilt. 
  3. Add the chicken broth, cut tomatoes, and cubed cream cheese (we did about 6-8 cubed chunks). 
  4. Cook on low for about 2 hours stirring occasionally. 
  5. Add the entire bag of tortellini and turn the heat up to medium high cooking for about 30 minutes. Soup should be reducing and thickening. 
  6. Serve and top with mozzarella if desired.
