Barham Basics: Tortellini Soup with Ground Pork
The invention of Hamburger Helper proved that dinner could be quick thanks to some ground beef and noodles. We like a variation on the theme that requires fresh ingredients but is just as quick to make, thanks to ground pork and prepackaged tortellini.

  • Servings: 8-10



Makes 8-10 servings

1 pound Barham Family Farm ground pork

1 (16-ounce) can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained

1 (14.5-ounce) can fire-roasted diced tomato

1 (8-ounce) package fresh spinach

3 (14-ounce) cans chicken broth

1 teaspoon oregano

Salt and pepper

1 (17- to 20- ounce) family-size package 4-cheese tortellini

Grated Parmesan cheese, for garnish

Crumble the ground pork in a large skillet and cook over medium heat until the meat is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. In the meantime, set water to boil in a large stockpot for the tortellini. Add garbanzo, tomato and spinach and cook 2 minutes, or until spinach is wilted. Add broth, season with oregano, salt and pepper and keep the soup warm on the stove.

Add tortellini to the boiling water and cook according to package directions. Drain the tortellini and put back in the pot. Add contents of the skillet. Serve soup with a sprinkling of grated cheese. To reheat, add a bit more broth.
