8 c turkey broth

1 c thinly sliced carrots (about 2 large)

1/2 c thinly sliced celery (about 2 ribs)

1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes with Italian seasonings

2 c diced or shredded cooked turkey

1 large clove garlic, minced

1-1/2 tsp dried Italian herb mix

1/2 tsp black pepper

1/2 tsp kosher salt, or to taste

2 c fresh baby spinach leaves

1 (9 oz) package refrigerated three-cheese tortellini

1/4 c freshly grated Parmesan cheese


In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring turkey broth to a simmer.

Add carrots, celery, and garlic, and simmer for 5 minutes.

Stir in tomatoes, turkey, Italian herb mix, black pepper, and simmer 10 more minutes. Taste test, and then add desired amount of kosher salt - as different broths, tomatoes, and turkey will have varying amounts of salt. Depending on your broth, if you are looking for a bit more flavor depth you could always add a little Turkey Better Than Bouillon.

Turn heat up just a bit.

Stir in tortellini and cook for 3 minutes.

Stir in spinach and cook until tortellini is done.

Serve immediately, garnishing individual servings with freshly grated Parmesan
