Tortellini & Zucchini Soup

Tortellini & Zucchini Soup

Everyone knows tortellini make a quick weeknight pasta dinner—but they also add substance that turns this quick, colorful vegetable soup into a meal. One caveat: Read the label carefully; avoid pasta products made with hydrogenated oils or unnecessary preservatives. Enjoy this soup with a slice of multigrain baguette and a spinach salad.

Serves 6

Prep Time 25 min

Total Time 40 min.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 large carrots, finely chopped
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 2 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 2 14-ounce c vegetable broth
  • 2 medium zucchini, diced
  • 9 ounces (ab fresh or frozen tortellini, preferably spinach-&-cheese

  • 2 tablespoon red-wine vinegar

Cooking Directions

Step 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.
