  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in tomato paste and anchovy fillet, cook until fragrant and color deepens, 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Pour in chicken broth and bring to a boil. Stir in tortellini and beans; cook until tortellini are cooked through but still firm to the bite, about 10 minutes.
  3. Stir in salt, black pepper, 1 pinch red pepper flakes, and oregano. Add spinach; cook and stir until just wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Ladle into bowls and garnish with red pepper flakes and grated Parmesan cheese.

Loved it. Easy and quick. Anchovy paste and tomato paste both come in a squeeze tube and last forever. Don't leave the anchovy; it gives a small nutty taste not fishy at all. No one knows it...

I added some fresh corn and avocado salsa to this and that took the soup to another level!

I added everything but the anchovy fillet, this was super easy to make and I already had the ingredients on hand! Don't forget the red pepper flakes and Parmigiano cheese!
