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.

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!!!

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!
