Spinach Artichoke Pesto Tortellini Soup-this hearty vegetarian soup is full of flavor and perfect for a chilly day!
Do you know what makes me happy? Slippers, a warm cozy sweater, and a big pot of soup on a chilly fall day. I love soup weather! There is nothing better than warming up with a bowl of homemade soup. Ok, a crackling fire would help, but we don’t have a fireplace so a candle will have to do for now:)
I am currently loving this Spinach Artichoke Pesto Tortellini Soup. It has all of my favorite ingredients in one big pot! The green color makes me happy too:)
We love making tortellini soups. Our Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup and Italian Sausage Tortellini Soup are two of our most popular recipes on our site so I guess you guys like tortellini soup too! Yay! Glad we are all on the same page here.
I think you will like this Spinach Artichoke Pesto Tortellini Soup too because it is loaded with flavor and is super easy to make.
I used spinach, artichokes, white beans, and cheese tortellini to make the soup. I also stirred in basil pesto which makes the soup even better. I used our favorite Spinach Basil Pesto recipe, but you can use store bought pesto if you are short on time. We have a ton of Spinach Basil Pesto in our freezer so I just pulled out a container for this soup. I love having a stocked freezer!
We ate this Spinach Artichoke Pesto Tortellini Soup for dinner and enjoyed leftovers the next day for lunch…another reason I love a big pot of soup. It usually lasts longer than just one meal which means less cooking for me and with a newborn and toddler, that is a very good thing:)
Embrace soup season and make Spinach Artichoke Pesto Tortellini Soup. It’s a good one!
