1/2 t dried Mediterranean oregano
1/4 t dried rosemary
1/4 t ground black pepper
2 cups leftover turkey, chopped or shredded
9 oz cheese tortellini
2 cups tightly packed fresh spinach, large leaves torn in half
Place stock, pepper, onion, garlic, thyme, basil, oregano, rosemary, and black pepper in a large soup pot.
Bring to a strong simmer. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook for 10 minutes.
Add the turkey and tortellini. Raise the heat to medium and return to a strong simmer.

This soothing soup is wonderful as is or with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.
