Take-out Tuesday, Chobani Tomato, Spinach & Pasta Soup

What is your very favorite soup?

Mine is Tomato, and yep, I am guilty of grabbing a can of good ole Campbell’s most of the time…

But when I found this recipe over at Closet Cooking for Creamy Tomato Soup with Tortellini and Spinach, and saw the prep time was only 10 minutes, I had to try it!

The original recipe calls for heavy whipping cream, which sounds good, but not so healthy…

So guess where my version gets all it’s creamy goodness?  Chobani Greek Yogurt!

I am participating in  the #MadeWithCobani project,  creating a unique, healthy recipe using Chobani yogurt as a key ingredient

The base of the soup is Chicken Broth and diced tomatoes, thickened with a roux made from onion and garlic, and then finished with the Chobani yogurt for a creamy, dreamy velvety texture

DSC_0023

Saute onion in butter until soft, and garlic, then stir in flour

DSC_0024

Add broth, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, and hit it with an immersion blender to break down the tomatoes and create a smooth texture

DSC_0025

Add fresh pasta, such as tortellini or mini ravioli, and let the pasta cook in the soup

DSC_0026

Stir in Chobani, Parmesan and pesto

Top with fresh spinach and cover, the spinach will wilt down into the soup as it steams

You can make this in 10 minutes and let it hang out on low on the stove top until you’re ready to serve

    I love tomato soup, and this looks amazing! That’s tomato soup kicked up several notches. I like the aspect of putting it all together and letting it hang out without much attention while you wait for said (or unsaid) husband to come in from the barn. 😉
