Tortellini & Zucchini Soup

Tortellini & Zucchini Soup

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 large carrots, finely chopped
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 2 tablespoons garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 2 14-ounce cans vegetable broth
  • 2 medium zucchini, diced
  • 9 ounces (about 2 cups) tortellini,, fresh or frozen, preferably spinach-&-cheese
  • 4  plum tomatoes, diced
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add carrots and onion; stir, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is soft and just beginning to brown, 6 to 7 minutes. Stir in garlic and rosemary and cook, stirring often, until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  2. Stir in broth and zucchini; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the zucchini is beginning to soften, about 3 minutes. Add tortellini and tomatoes and simmer until the tortellini are plump and the tomatoes are beginning to break down, 6 to 10 minutes. Stir vinegar into the hot soup just before serving.

Tonight, I’m doing a simple Soup and Salad meal, spinach salad and multigrain baguette.
