Winter Soup with Chicken & Cheese Tortellini

It was a beautiful sunny day here yesterday, quite chilly with the temperature not going above 7 degrees.. Cold right! 🙂  I took Charlie for his morning walk to the park and was so fascinated with the colored leaves on the trees,  just absolutely stunning. 

I wanted to take photos to post them, but I didn’t have my camera with me so I tried to take photos with my phone.  Of course that didn’t work out because my phone is pre-historic and just freezes up every time I want to use it, so annoying!  

Our walk was fun, charlie had a great time running around and just enjoying the sun and playing with the other doggies…;)  I took in all those beautiful colors and  fresh air and started heading back home to make this wonderful soup which has a little of this and a little of that in it. 🙂




  • 2 Chicken breasts
  • 5 cups of Chicken Broth
  • 1 Carrot thinly sliced
  • 2 cups Spinach
  • 1 package Cheese Tortellini
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Parmesan Cheese for topping


  1. Chop chicken breasts into small pieces and boil for 15 minutes. Drain and mince into small pieces and set aside to cool.
  2. Add Tortellini and Spinach into boiling water.
  3. Wash Spinach thoroughly and drain.
  4. In a large pot add water the chicken broth, carrots, and boil until tortellini is cooked. Add in salt and pepper and chicken boil for 10 minutes.
  5. Unfortuntely, my tortellini overboiled because my phone rang and I had to take the call. If you decide to make this soup keep on eye on the tortellini…:)
  6. Top with Parmesan Cheese…:)

    Sounds like a lovely day and a lovely soup!! It's cold here, too, but not quite that bad. I think it was 14 degrees today. A perfect day for soup! I actually like my tortellini cooked a little more than usual! Funny...
