Chicken and Tortellini Florentine Soup


Tortellini add body to this Florentine soup made with chicken, spinach, and Parmesan cheese that's ready to serve in about 45 minutes.


  • 1 (12 ounce) package refrigerated cheese tortellini
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ½ large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 pinch dried marjoram
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese


  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil; stir in tortellini and return to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the tortellini are tender yet firm to the bite, about 9 minutes. Drain.
  2. Melt butter in a pot over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir until onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Add paprika, cumin, marjoram, salt, and pepper. Reduce heat to low. Stir flour into the pot. Whisk in chicken stock slowly until fully blended.
  3. Bring soup to a boil, stirring frequently until thickened. Add tortellini, chicken, spinach, and heavy cream; stir until heated through, about 5 minutes. Stir in Parmesan cheese until melted, 1 to 2 minutes.
