Servings: 4


  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 can tomatoes chopped
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1/2 tsp chili flakes
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1 cup tortellini meat, cheese, whatever you like
  • 200 g spinach chopped
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • salt
  • pepper


  • Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onions and the garlic and cook until they start to brown.
  • Add the flour and stir until everything is coated. Deglaze with the white wine.
  • Add the chicken stock, the tomatoes, the tomato paste, chili, basil, oregano and rosmary.
  • You could leave the soup to cook like that and it would turn out a bit chunky. That's fine too, but I like mine quite smooth so I puréed the soup with a stick blender.
  • Add the cream and salt and pepper to taste. If the soup is too thick for you at that stage you can always add a bit of water.
  • Add the tortellini and cook for 10-15 minutes.
  • In the end add the spinach.
