    • Preparation – 10 Mins
    • Cook: 30 mins
    • Total: 40 mins


    • 2 cups crushed tomatoes
    • 6 cups broth vegetable or chicken
    • 1 cup chopped carrots
    • 1 cup chopped celery
    • 1 small onion diced
    • 3 medium garlic cloves minced
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil

    • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
    • ½ teaspoon dried basil
    • 5 cups spinach
    • ¾ cup orzo pasta


    • Melt the butter and olive oil in a large heavy-bottomed pot over the medium-high heat.
    • Sauté the onion for 2 to 3 minutes. Cook for 4 minutes more after adding the garlic, carrots, and celery.
    • Add salt and pepper to broth, crushed tomatoes, bay leaves, dried basil, and dried oregano. Bring the soup to a boil, then stir in the orzo or desired pasta.
    • Reduce to low heat and cook until the pasta is perfectly cooked, occasionally stirring to prevent the orzo from sticking.

    • Now, Enjoy!

    How to Store Leftover Chicken Orzo Tomato Soup:

    When the leftover orzo soup has cooled to room temperature, put it to a container that will keep air out and place it in the refrigerator for up to five days.

    The soup should be brought to room temperature before being placed in an airtight container and frozen. You can keep it frozen for up to two months.

    Tips For Chicken Orzo Tomato Soup:

    • The chicken can be cooked in advance, or you can use rotisserie chicken as a time saver.
    • Use low-sodium chicken broth if you have to watch your salt intake.
    • Keep stirring the soup, so the orzo doesn’t get stuck to the bottom.
    • The orzo should be cooked until it is firm, or “al dente,” to avoid becoming mushy.
