A good start, but needs work in my view. Also, inexperienced cooks may find the recipe too vague -for example, garlic is mentioned in the ingredients list but doesn't say what to do with it. I used homemade beef broth from meaty bones, tomatoes I had put up from my garden, and a good glug of red wine. I sauteed two chopped leeks and some minced garlic in olive oil until tender and added it to the soup along with some Tuscan seasoning. Hubs unfortunately does not like cheese tortellini so I used a frozen mini meat ravioli instead. I used far less spinach, maybe 2 ozs. Finally, to make the soup a little heartier, I added a can of cannellini beans. Now we're talking! With a little embellishment this was a wonderful, fulll-flavored soup.
