Here's the thing- as written this recipe is a GREAT base but it's pretty bland and I'd probably give it 3 stars. But with some VERY simple changes this is a solid 5 and I don't want to discourage others from making it by only giving it 3. Here's what I changed: Saute 1 small diced onion in 2 Tbsp of butter with 2 tsp minced garlic. Add thyme (increased to 1 tsp) black pepper (increased to 2 tsp) 1/2 tsp salt 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes 1 Tbsp poultry seasoning. Add this mixture to the soup. I also decreased the spinach by about 1/2 a cup because there was just SO much spinach in the soup. After the changes (none of which really change the basic recipe) this soup is PHENOMENAL!!

Nope no good. I put about half the spinach in it and it was still too much. The cream of chicken soup made it too salty and tasted processed. Read More

I made my own cheese tortellini with wonton wrappers and ricotta cheese chive and parmesean mixture. I put about 2 tablespoons butter choppped green onion and some fine chopped bell pepper into pan and cooked to soften. I then added 2 cans of broth as one was not enough to cook the tortellini. Fresh spinach was all that I had on hand chopped and added near the end to wilt properly. An extra sprinkle of grated parmesean on serving and a sprinkle of garlic croutons. This one is definitely a good base that can go in many directions. Read More

I'm glad you are enjoying the recipe. Please tweak away I learn just as much from others who add ideas. I have a picky eater at home so most of my recipes need to be somewhat bland.:) Read More

For one I cut the spinach to about half. It was just too much. I also use more veggies- carrots mushrooms celery onion (as much as you like) along with minced garlic. I cook all of those together in the chicken broth until tender then mix into the soup. I have 3 kids ages 15 12 &5 and they all love this recipe. With a little doctoring I give it 5 stars. Read More

Great idea just make it your own. I first sauteed my well-seasoned chicken for added flavor. Then I sauteed onion garlic mushrooms celery carrots and peas for a few minutes before pouring the broth in. Once all the ingredients and spices are in tweak more to suite your taste. If you don't like cream-of-whatever soups by all means scroll on to the next recipe. And if you know you don't like those soups why would you even bother making it or commenting? I just make it my own and share my changes when its good. Lord knows I appreciate other HELPFUL reviews! Read More

Please do not hate this review because I did not follow the recipe. I agree with sunnydaynora and as written this soup was rather bland. The second time around I followed the suggestions of another reviewer and sautéed a small onion in a little butter added in a clove of garlic fresh thyme and salt & pepper. Then I added this mixture to the soup. I also used about 10oz of fresh spinach which I think gave it a fresh taste and was not an over abundance of spinach. I probably would have preferred more spinach myself but overall an excellent base for tortellini soup. Read More
