Recipe #53: spinach tortellini soup  
recipe here

It's starting to cool down here, which means I start to really look forward to eating soup. I've never made soup though, at least not intentionally. There was that one time when I added too much liquid to a lentil stew and turned it into a lentil soup.

I got diced tomatoes instead of crushed (will try crushed next time, I don't mind chunky but I also really like smoother tomato soups) and wow, for some reason my can opener was really not behaving tonight. I ended up having to turn off the stove so that the onions/garlic/olive oil wouldn't cook too long since it took several minutes to get the cans open. Not really sure what was going on there! I also got non frozen cheese and garlic tortellini. At first I was really worried I wouldn't have enough tortellini, but I had 3 tortellini in my bowl that I ended up cutting into quarters and was definitely enough.

This was really flavorful and good! And definitely a good dish for a night where you don't want to do much preparation or work in the kitchen. I served with some garlic toast (using the garlic salt I purchased yesterday!) and a small salad. It was a great dinner.

Sounds delicious!

Also, just wanted to mention that if you enjoy soup, but live somewhere too hot to really to partake of hot soup, there are a variety of cold soups that are quite enjoyable, usually fruit-based. Off the top of my head, I know there's a strawberry one that's quite good but I'm sure Google can provide some different recipes :P
