Flavor stuffed tortellini soup made with chicken, spinach and zingy lemon. This generous soup is very quick to make and tastes mind-blowing. Ideal for occupied weeknights!

1 cup chopped yellow onion
1 head garlic
½ tsp. kosher salt plus extra to taste
½ tsp. black pepper

Cook, mixing regularly until garlic just begins to turn brilliant, around 10 minutes.

Embellishment servings with extra basil and ground Parmesan.
Indeed, you read that right—there’s an entire head of garlic in this soup, in addition to somewhat more! Try not to stress; it progresses during cooking. Make certain to spare those 2 cloves to grind into the soup during the most recent 5 minutes of cooking. It gives the soup an additional punch of flavor that you’ll appreciate.
In the event that you don’t have a Microplane grater (and I certainly prescribe getting one—they’re incredible for zesting citrus, grinding nutmeg and entire cheeses, and an assortment of other kitchen assignments) you can utilize the littlest openings of your container grater, or mince it a finely and you can oversee.
I like to utilize low-sodium chicken stock with the goal that you can control the measure of salt in your formula.
You can generally include salt toward the end on the off chance that you need it, however, you can never remove it.
On the off chance that you can discover a lemon-pepper enhanced rotisserie chicken at your staple’s shop, I certainly prescribe utilizing it. Be that as it may, a normal simmered chicken or chicken bosoms will do fine and dandy.
Did you notice that I called for tossing a Parmesan skin into the soup? That is not a mix-up! It mixes the soup with huge amounts of rich, appetizing Parmesan enhance. I like to purchase a wedge of Parmesan, grind what I need, and hack off the skin to include the soup. Simply make certain to expel it before serving; it gets extremely delicate and gooey, however, it’s bad to eat.
One more tip: you can store
remaining Parmesan skins in the cooler in a Ziploc sack for as long as a year.
Utilize any brand of filled solidified tortellini that you like; simply be certain not to bubble them, so they hold their shape.
This appears to be a great deal of spinach, however, it cooks down rapidly. Include it in clumps, blending as you include it.
