How Do You Make This Creamy Tomato Soup?

Start by cooking some onions and garlic in a soup pot or dutch oven. Stir in tomato paste, then pour in chicken broth, diced tomatoes and a jar of your favorite store bought marinara sauce.

You can also use an equal amount of crushed tomatoes, or homemade marinara sauce if you like too. Bring that to a simmer for 15 minutes, uncovered and then grab a whole bunch of fresh spinach.

A whole, 5 ounce container goes into this Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup, it wilts down a LOT, so don’t worry. If you need to swap out frozen spinach just make sure that you defrost it first and squeeze out all the water before adding to the soup.
