To prepare this soup you need butter, carrots, celery, onions, garlic, thyme, seasoning mix, mushrooms, chicken broth, cheese tortellini, chicken, spinach, and Parmesan cheese.
If you need to, substituting some of these foods is not a problem. Try using olive oil, broccoli, peas, leeks, potatoes, garlic powder, oregano, Italian seasoning mix, vegetable broth, farfalle pasta, beans, fish, shrimp, cabbage, and pecorino.
This soup is full of nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, protein, and fiber. You can add more vegetables if you like, such as spinach, bell peppers, corn, tomatoes, and sweet potatoes. For a vegetarian option, try using beans like cannellini, black-eyed peas, and chickpeas.
When you start cooking, you should place a large pot over medium heat and melt the butter. Cook the carrots, celery, onions, and garlic first. Add the mushrooms, thyme, and seasoning after.
Once the vegetables have softened, you can stir in the broth and bring everything to a rolling boil. Add the tortellini and chicken and cook for another 10 minutes. Finish off by adding the spinach and cooking for a few more minutes.
Remember that the cooking time depends on the ingredients and amounts you use. You may want to adjust the seasoning to your taste as well.
Serve your soup hot and with fresh Parmesan cheese grated on top. You can prepare this soup as a quick lunch, appetizer, or as a main dish in a larger bowl.
