Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in tomato paste and anchovy fillet, cook until fragrant and color deepens, 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Pour in chicken broth and bring to a boil. Stir in tortellini and beans; cook until tortellini are cooked through but still firm to the bite, about 10 minutes.
  3. Stir in salt, black pepper, 1 pinch red pepper flakes, and oregano. Add spinach; cook and stir until just wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Ladle into bowls and garnish with red pepper flakes and grated Parmesan cheese.

So, I did a a few subs on this. I think I made it more like Pasta Faxanadu! Instead of an anchovy filet (because, let's face it, yuck!) I used an Italian turkey sausage, and to avoid wasting most of a can of tomato paste (I had nothing else planned to use it in) I threw in a whole can instead of just a teaspoon. Vavoom! It was AWESOME! I made my own beans in the crockpot with some chopped red onion added in. AWESOME!!!

Have not tried yet, but have a comment. Like others, when I buy tomato paste of anchovy filets, I use a bit, then have to toss the rest when it dries out or spoils. Try anchovy and tomato pastes that come in tubes.

Loved it. Easy and quick. Anchovy paste and tomato paste both come in a squeeze tube and last forever. Don't leave the anchovy; it gives a small nutty taste not fishy at all. No one knows it's in there. To add additional protein I cooked some ground turkey and threw it in. My German ancestors taught me to always have some kind of soup on hand at all times--not canned--and no one would go hungry.

I added some fresh corn and avocado salsa to this and that took the soup to another level!

This is one of my favorite soups because it's so quick & easy! I usually make 2 or 3 times the recipe because it is SO good on a cold night--or anytime! Thanks, Chef John! You're awesome! Btw, I get anchovy paste & it keeps forever; it really adds a nice flavor!

Instead of opening a can of anchovies for this recipe, I used anchovy paste, so there was no waste. It was deelish!

I added everything but the anchovy fillet, this was super easy to make and I already had the ingredients on hand! Don't forget the red pepper flakes and Parmigiano cheese!

After trying your recipe for ribs I went ahead and made this tonight again I didnt change a thing (except I left out the anchovy) and it was fantastic! Really easy and super fast! Thankyou
