Recipe Steps

  • Step 1 - Chop the Vegetables
    1

    Chop the Vegetables

    Slice the bell pepper in to thin strips about 1½-inch long. Loosely chop the spinach, and finely chop the garlic, mushrooms, and parsley. Finely dice the roma tomato, saving the juice as you go.

  • Step 2 - Sauté the Vegetables

    Sauté the Vegetables

    Heat 1 Tbsp. olive oil in the bottom of a soup pot. Add the mushrooms, bell pepper, and garlic. Then add the salt and pepper to taste. Sauté the vegetables until they begin to get soft. This will take about 4 minutes. Then remove from the pot and set aside.

  • Step 3 - Boil the Chicken

    Boil the Chicken

    Using the same soup pot, heat the bouillon cubes and 4 cups of water over high heat until it comes to a boil. Cut the chicken breasts in half. Place in the boiling chicken broth and cook for 7 minutes, or until no longer pink in the center. Then remove from the broth and set aside. Once cooled, shred the chicken with a fork in to bite-sized pieces and add back to the broth.

  • Step 4 - Cook the Tortellini
