2 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, diced small
2 large carrots, diced small
2 large celery stalks, diced small
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
8 cups good low-sodium vegetable stock
5 ounces baby spinach
9 ounces tortellini
1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
Freshly ground black pepper
Grated parmesan or pecorino, for serving
- Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add onion, carrots, celery and salt and stir to coat with oil. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beginning to soften. If you happen to get distracted and the veggies brown a little bit, it'll add some nice depth of flavor.
- Stir in stock, bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to simmer until veggies are tender. Remove lid and add spinach and tortellini. Cook according to tortellini package instructions (usually just simmering for a couple of minutes). Off the heat, stir in parsley and black pepper to taste.
- Ladle into bowls and serve with cheese to pass at the table.
