Shopping Tips
I used Trader Joe’s Cheese Tortellini. It’s fresh pasta and found in the refrigerated section. Most supermarkets carry a few brands, such as Buitoni.
I used Gallo reduced-fat salami. This brand and other brands are available in the luncheon meat section of the supermarket. In addition, I like Columbus Lite Italian Dry Salami and it’s gluten-free. I found it at Von’s/Safeway in the deli section. Or you could use Hormel’s 70% reduced-fat turkey pepperoni. You’ll find it in the luncheon meat section of most supermarkets.

  • 1 cup onions, chopped
  • 1 cup red bell peppers, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 2 cups lite salami, cut in fours or lite turkey pepperoni, see shopping tips
  • 1 (48 oz) container Swanson’s reduced-sodium chicken broth or 1 (32 oz) container and 1 (14.5 oz) can
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can petite diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 (15 oz) can garbanzo beans or cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (9-10 oz) package refrigerated cheese tortellini, see shopping tips
  • ½ small can sliced black olives, drained
  • 2 cups fresh baby spinach, packed
  • ¾ teaspoon dried basil
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • Grated Parmesan cheese, optional topping


  • In a small microwave-safe bowl, add onions and red bell peppers. Cook in microwave for 2 minutes, to soften.
  • Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a large nonstick pot or pan. Add garlic and salami and sauté for 1 minute.
  • Stir in broth, tomatoes and beans. Bring to a boil. Stir in tortellini. Turn heat down and simmer 5 minutes until pasta is almost tender. Stir often. Mix in black olives, spinach, basil and a little black pepper. Cook for 2 minutes until spinach is wilted and tortellini is tender.
  • Ladle into bowls. Top with a little Parmesan cheese, if desired. This soup freezes great. Since the pasta absorbs some of the liquid, when reheating, you might need to add a little more chicken broth.

Tried this recipe?Let me know how it was!


  1. Hi Nancy ,
    This looks great . I have a question : About how many ounces of salami should I buy to equal two cups . In the photo it looks like white beans , maybe navy or great northern . Did you still use garbanzo beans ?
    I cant wait to try this .

  2. Ni Nancy ,
    Are there black olives in this ? Just trying to make sure that I have everything . We love antipasto .

  3. Sorry Robin. My mistake. i just added the 1/2 can black olives. The WW points are all still the same.

  4. You can use any white bean such as garbanzo, cannellini, or navy. As far as the salami, just buy 1 package of Gallo reduced-fat salami. You’ll have plenty leftover and you can freeze it for another use.
    I hope you thoroughly enjoy this soup Robin!
    My very best wishes,
