This was very good, my husband and son really raved about it. I cooked two chicken breast, seasoned with garlic, onion and Mediterranean seasonings in my pressure cooker, then used the seasoned broth as my chicken broth. I probably had about three cups of chicken. This was so creamy good and had a very nice flavor. I do think I'd cut the broth down next time to just five cups for a thicker soup base. I also threw the spinach in the last 7 minutes of cooking to keep it from reducing too much. I'd like to try it with more vegetables, but really it was perfectly wonderful with just the spinach.

Fabulously easy! I added garlic, since this recipe didn't call for it. I cooked my chicken in some heavy spices, and then deglazed the pan with white wine...adding that to the stock as well. I added celery and carrots as well as onions. I'm the only spinach eater in the house, so I added spinach to my bowl and let the heat from the soup wilt it. Instead of sour cream, I added about 3oz of cream cheese--simply because that was what I had on hand. All in all, this worked for us--my extremely picky 8 year old ate 2 bowls of it without complaint. Thanks!!!!

SO delicious. I doubled the chicken for a meatier soup and seasoned it with Herbes de Provence and lemon pepper before cooking in extra virgin olive oil, then added all of the juices and meat to the soup. Very filling. A little goes a long way.

Tasty stuff! This came out great. I added a can of fire-roasted diced tomatoes and mixed some of the cheese directly into the soup and it was delicious!

Really great soup. Made this without the chicken because I didn't have any on hand. I doubled the spinach and added a few mushrooms that I had in the fridge. Delicious! I would suggest adding the sour cream and spinach in the last 5 minutes of cooking, just as the tortellini becomes al dente. I'm going to try bacon as a garnish next time. The variations on this will be endless...
