Creamy Spinach Artichoke Soup

I’ve had this soup recipe waiting to be posted for weeks. Probably since around Christmas time. It was absolutely, incredibly delicious. But when January rolled around, I came down with a major case of Spring fever and I’ve been boycotting winter-y recipes ever since. I actually do eat soup all year round, but I usually don’t make soup all year round. This is my very last soup recipe for the season. Farewell Winter… I will not miss you!

Creamy Spinach Artichoke Soup

The thing I love about soups like this is how easy they are to make and how quickly they come together. We’re talking less than thirty minutes to get dinner on the table. And not a hot-n-ready pizza, this is quality Italian rich n’ creamy soup we’re having for dinner. The artichoke-spinach-garlicky-tortellini combo is fantastic! If you’re considering a farewell to soup season, this Creamy Spinach Artichoke Soup is the recipe to finish it off with a bang!

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 14-ounce can artichoke hearts, chopped
  • 4 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth (or vegetable broth for vegetarian)
  • 2 cups baby spinach leaves, chopped
  • 4 ounces cream cheese*
  • 2 cups half and half (fat free or regular)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 12 ounces cooked tortellini (plain, cheese or spinach)
  • 1/3 cup shredded parmesan cheese, plus more for topping

Instructions

  • Melt butter in a large, deep pan over medium heat. When butter is melted, add artichokes and sauté 3-4 minutes. Add garlic and cook another minute or so until fragrant. Stir in flour and stir til butter and flour clumps up.
  • Add broth and whisk until smooth. Add spinach and cream cheese. Continue to stir until cream cheese is melted, then whisk in half and half and salt. Add tortellini and parmesan and stir until parmesan is melted. Serve warm and top with additional parmesan cheese if desired.

Notes

*Tip: microwave the cream cheese for 25-20 seconds so it will melt in the soup more quickly.
**If you like it thicker, you can add a corn starch slurry. Whisk together 1 tablespoon water and 2 tablespoons corn starch until dissolved. Bring soup to a boil and add cornstarch slurry. Whisk until soup thickens, then reduce heat.

Oh my, this looks absolutely delicious. Does it taste sort of like spinach artichoke dip? I bet it would be tasty with some chicken added to it, too. Yum!

OMG! This came out so good….we added hot sauce and lots of extra parm. I didn’t have tortellini so I used Campanelle noodles and they were perfect because they gave you a big mouthful of soup in every bite.

Hi, this soup looks great. Curious, how far in advance can it be made?
