Spinach & Tomato Cheese Tortellini Soup

Top of the morning to you, foodies! It has been quite a few days. Nick and I went to Pennsylvania this weekend and I stayed a couple of extra days. I wanted to help Nick’s dad with something, plus I just wanted to stick around. Coming back to our apartment is painful sometimes. It is especially painful because I know that we have a beautiful house being built. The anticipation is mounting by the day and I feel like I am going to blow! Plus, it doesn’t hurt that Nick’s dad is a pretty incredible guy. Nick is very blessed to have such a great role model and father!

Okay, okay I am done gushing.

I cooked dinner for Joe {Nick’s dad} on Monday. It was a huge hit. Joe loves soup… really; I’ve never known a man that loves soup more than he. So I decided to make some soup. So I decided to give Tortellini soup a try. And the result was a delicious pot of Spinach and Tomato Cheese Tortellini Soup.

Yep. You read that right! Take a look at this soup!
