Italian Antipasto Tortellini Soup Made Skinny
This heartwarming soup is so quick to fix on a busy night and full of healthy, tasty ingredients! In the past, I’ve shared an antipasto tortellini pasta salad. So, I thought it might be fun to create this main course soup using the same fabulous flavors. Each large 2 cup serving has 318 calories and 8 grams of fat.

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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.

Notes

Makes 12 cups total, 6 main course serving. Each serving, 2 cups.

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.
