Creamy Tortellini and Chorizo Soup
by Collette White | 13 August, 2019
Good Morning friends! I hope this finds you all well. Sometimes I just feel like making something different. I’ve been feeling like this a bit lately and it’s kind of fun and refreshing. I was scrolling on Pinterest the other day and saw a tomato based soup with ravioli. I didn’t look into it to see exactly what was in the soup (for many reasons it’s just something I don’t do) but it inspired this soup recipe. My family absolutely loved it which is GREAT as this recipe made enough for all 5 of them to have twice, apparently there were a few oooh’s and ahhhh’s from their friends at school too AND it was super easy to make. YAY! I hope you love it as much as them!
1tblspn oil of choice
3 cloves garlic – crushed
1 large brown onion – finely diced
2 chorizo – thinly sliced *
3 litres vegetable stock or bone broth
1kg tortellini *
120g baby spinach
200ml thickened cream *
Heat an extra-large saucepan over a medium heat. Once hot add the oil, garlic, onion and chorizo, stirring for 4-5 minutes or until fragrant and starting to golden without burning.
Add stock / broth and passata, stir and bring to the boil.
Once boiling add the tortellini and follow the instructions on the packet for cooking time (eg the one I bought was ‘cook in boiling water for 6 minutes’).
Once the tortellini cooking time is finished, reduce heat to low and add baby spinach and cream. Stir for 1 minute before serving.
- This makes LOADS! This served my hubby, 2 teenage daughters and 8 year old twins for dinner and there was enough left over for all 5 of them to take for lunch
- If you wish to make a smaller amount, reduce everything by half
- GF tortellini or similar (eg ravioli) pasta is available in the supermarket
- If you cant find GF tortellini etc, you can swap this for ‘standard’ GF pasta eg penne and increase the chorizo a little or even add some diced bacon also
- You can swap the cream for lactose free cream or coconut milk OR you can leave it out altogether for a ‘tomato’ based soup instead
- Check ingredients of chorizo – I found one that was GF
- As my family don’t need GF or DF I served it with a little shaved parmesan on top, once again this can be left off or swapped for cheese of choice depending on your intolerances
