1 1/2 tablespoons
anchovy fillet, chopped
dry cheese tortellini
1 (15 ounce) can
white beans, rinsed and drained
salt and ground black pepper to taste
red pepper flakes
baby spinach leaves
grated Parmesan cheese
red pepper flakes, or to taste
I added some fresh corn and avocado salsa to this and that took the soup to another level!
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!!!
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
I was wanting white bean soup and came upon this recipe. It was perfect because I had some frozen tortellini to use up (although they were spinach) and I had fresh spinach. The soup fit the bill as a quick dinner but I don't think I'll make it again. I'm not a fan of oregano but wanted to make the recipe as stated. I'm not downgrading it for that. I feel like the soup as is is just missing something.
