Mini Meatball, Mini Tortellini and Spinach Soup

As soon as I saw this recipe from Reeni on I knew I had to give it a try, and it was as good as it looked and sounded. I substituted mini cheese tortellini (available at TJs)for the ravioli she used, and in the meatball recipe I used half ground pork/half  ground beef  instead of all beef. One spoonful and Bruce immediately dubbed the dish guest-worthy, which loosely translated means…yum.



  1. I’m totally going to make this!!

    I have all the stuff too! Yeah!!

  2. Oooh, I love a good tortellini soup. This looks marvelous!

  3. Oh how perfect this looks! It’s -3C here in London and threatening to snow – I could do with a bowl. Could you send one? I’m not planning to leave the house until the thermometer looks a little more friendly. Happy new year to you Catherine, I hope 2010 holds all kinds of deliciousness.

  4. Sound delicious Catherine. Love the combination of pork and beef. It always seem tastier.

  5. I’m so glad you tried it and liked it! My Mom requested I make it for Xmas dinner and it was a big hit – although some people were too full to go on to the main course. I love your substitutions and your rustic looking bowls. Thanks again!

  6. Have you hi-jacked my brain? Planning tortellini soup for tomorrow’s dinner! Yours looks great!

  7. Absolutely one of my favorite types of soups.. it looks so so so delicious!

  10. Ooh this looks awesome. So good!

  11. your pictures are so up close, i could almost taste the soup. now i’m craving for a bowl myself…

  12. I sometimes like my soup like this: easy yet so tasty too!

    MMMMMMM,…all the way!!

  13. Happy New Year Catherine…Oh! Your soup looks delicious, a little bit of everything, love it!

  14. What a beautiful photo of that soup! I love the French bread pieces in it! Heavenly! Tortellini is a much better idea than ravioli, I think. More hearty.

  15. Funny with the g. Never happened before. Must have hit it typing! I do it all so fast! Usually something comes on and tells me I typed an incorrect url.
