I promise we eat more than pie and cookie dough bars around here ๐Ÿ™‚ Apparently if you hide a bunch of vegetables amongst cheese filled tortellini your kids will gobble it up with no complaints! Who knew?!

With how our summer is going thus far, my kids eating this vegetable filled tortellini minestrone soup was a ray of sunshine in my day. Summer with all 4 kids at home is tough. To make things worse my husband is gone for the week on a business trip. I give major props to the single mommas out there because I am barely holding on here.

Onion, garlic, carrots, celery, zucchini, and beans simmer in a super flavorful tomato vegetable broth. The longer you let it simmer the more the flavors will meld together and the softer the vegetables will be. Just be sure and add the tortellini about 10 minutes before serving. I let my soup (minus pasta) simmer for about 25 minutes. The vegetables still had a slight crunch to them and the beans were soft.

And the leftovers are fabulous the next day. If it gets too thick for your liking just add some water when you’re reheating the leftovers. Be sure you are using the refrigerated tortellini, which can be found in the produce/deli area of most grocery stores. You could use frozen but you would have to cook it first or leave it in the pot longer so it can cook all the way through.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup thinly sliced carrots
  • 1 cup thinly sliced celery
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes w/ garlic, basil, & oregano (do not drain)
  • 1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 zucchini, diced
  • 1 can (15 oz) kidney beans, drained
  • 1 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • pepper to taste
  • 1 package (10 oz) refrigerated cheese tortellini

Instructions

  • In a large soup pot over medium high heat, add olive oil, onions, carrots, and celery. Cook for 5-7 minutes, until onions are translucent and the vegetables are crisp-tender.
  • Season with salt & pepper, if desired.
  • Add garlic and let cook for 1 minute.
  • Add diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, vegetable broth, beans, zucchini, and seasonings. Bring to a boil and then turn heat to medium low and let simmer for 15-25 minutes.
  • Add tortellini and let cook for about 5-10 minutes longer. Tortellini will float to the top when they are done cooking.
  • Serve with parmesan cheese.

Notes

If you don't like soft zucchini and beans, add them along with the tortellini for a crisper texture. I prefer them soft in soups so I add them with everything else.

TIP : slice baby carrots. It makes slicing carrots super easy!
