Turkey Meatball Spinach Tortellini Soup

I love turkey meatballs in my soup. Spaghetti and meatball soup is a regular in my home because my kids love it! I also love making tortellini soup – Spinach Tortellini en Brodo is a winter favorite of mine. This recipe combines the best of both soups and my family loved it. I hope yours does too!

This soup is AMAZING guys! It’s so good and simple, perfect on these chilly nights. The Parmigiano-Reggiano rind is a MUST if you have one! It makes the broth so tasty and rich.

I form the meatballs and plop them right into the broth, they come out so tender and melt in your mouth.

If you want to make this ahead for leftovers, you may want to add the Tortellini to the soup later, as it will soak up quite a bit of the broth. If you have leftovers with tortellini already cooked, you can add more liquid to reheat it needs more broth.
