The other day I was scrolling through my Facebook news feed and I ran into a picture that I just couldn’t ignore. I must have been hungry at the time because I knew immediately that I had to try this recipe! The recipe originated from a musical group called “Point of Grace.”
Here are the ingredients:
You can scroll down to get the full, printable recipe! Let me show you how to throw this soup together!
First, chop your celery and carrots. Add olive oil to a large stock pot, and then add the celery and carrots, garlic – onions too!
Saute until veggies are soft.
Add your frozen spinach. Continue to break up spinach until it’s thawed.
Add the cream of chicken and water. (Sorry for the messy glob of soup on the side!)
Add the chicken broth and tortellini!
Heat until tortellini is soft.
Please note: Make this soup the day ahead before you want to serve it!! The recipe clearly states that it’s better the day after because the tortellini soaks up the broth, making it more flavorful!
I set my soup (in the stock pot- lid on) in my garage to keep it cold until I served it the next day! The temp in my garage was 38 degrees so it was perfect…and the pot didn’t take up a bunch of room in my fridge!
Here’s the final product! I served the soup with a pretzel bread stick and a salad!
Here’s the printable recipe for you! Enjoy!

We enjoyed ours…but I would still add the cheese. Yours looks good and so pretty!
