This is the recipe I give away more than any other.
Maybe because it is so easy to make
all skill levels can handle it.
Maybe because it takes minutes
so even the busiest will give it a try.
Maybe because most of the ingredients are right in your pantry so you can whip it up without a trip to the market.
I took a gig as a food stylist a long time ago and this was the recipe I had to 'test' for the production co and the chef.
I was hooked, with the recipe, not food styling.
I'd much rather prop the food than make it!
In a saucepan saute some diced (med dice) onion in a little olive oil, until it is translucent.
Maybe a minced clove of garlic if you are feeling it.
Add tomato soup, according to directions and servings needed.
Muir Organic makes a delicious one.
When soup is about boiling add some Barilla bagged dried tortellini, basically a small handful of dried pasta per each cup of soup.
(I love all things Barilla, just finished up a shoot for them ~ molto amore!)
Cook for a little longer than time stated on bag
(I usually like my pasta al dente but in this case it is better somewhat swollen and mushy)
Right before you serve, toss in some fresh spinach
(you can also use drained and thawed frozen spinach but I try to always have some fresh in my fridge for salads and cooking)
Stir and Serve.
Top with some shaved parm.
This is the best lunch for a chilly day.
Really warms the soul.
