I did not have frozen spinach or a green pepper but had fresh spinach and a red pepper. My family loved this soup and would make it again!

We had a soup buffet for my daughter's birthday party and this was one of the three. I'm sorry to say that this seemed to be the least favorite. It was pretty good, but a lot salty to my taste. I'd make it again with some alterations, I guess.

Great soup! I had a cold and instead of downing a can of condensed chicken noodle soup, I thought I'd make some from scratch. I love spinach, so this was right up my alley and the tortellini was a nice twist as well! I made a few variations---limited the onions and celery just because I'm not a huge fan. I did use fresh spinach instead of frozen and it worked just fine. Instead of meat, I used a three cheese tortellini and omitted the egg noodles (too much pasta). Finally, I didn't go through the trouble of taking the chicken off the bone (thought it made the soup more "hearty" and it falls right off anyway) and I also added a couple teaspoons of butter. All in all---this was a fantastic recipe! I served it with garlic bread and it tasted event better for lunch the next day!!!

This was SOOOO good! I couldn't try it with the tortellini (because I couldn't find it) but it was great!!!!

I didn't have any green pepper, and used cheese tortellini instead of meat, but this recipe is delicious! Perfect for a chilly day!

Great recipe. The only changes were to use fresh sauted spinach (because I had it), a bouillon substitute called "Better than Bouillon" (because I had it) and orzo pasta (because I forgot to get the egg noodles). My husband who is not a huge soup fan said "This is a keeper". Thanks.
