My mom makes this soup all the time and my parents love it. I didn’t know until today that this recipe came out of a newspaper. I thought she made it up! Recipe below.

3 gloves chopped garlic

1/2 cup white wine or dry vermouth

1 quart low-sodium chicken broth

1 package (9 ounces) fresh tortellini

1 bunch baby spinach

2 sprigs fresh oregano or basil


  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Add the garlic; cook until golden, 1-2 minutes.

  6. 2 minutes before the pasta is done, stir in the spinach; cook until the spinach wilts slightly.
