Whatever tortellini you use, just cook it the amount of time in your soup as it says to on the package. If you like a more hearty soup, add more tortellini according to the consistency you are looking for. I have also added grilled chicken to this to make it more filling. ENJOY!
2 tsp olive oil
1/2 c. onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, pressed
2 cans (14 oz) chicken broth
1 1/4 c dried cheese tortellini
1 can (14 1/2 oz) petite diced tomatoes, undrained
1 1/2 tsp dried basil, or fresh basil (double the amount)
1 pkg. (10 oz) frozen chopped spinach, or 10 oz chopped fresh spinach
grated fresh Parmesan cheese for garnish
In a 3 quart pot, heat oil over medium high heat, add onion and garlic, cook and stir until tender. Add broth, bring to boil. Add tortellini, cook according to package directions, or until tender. Stir in tomatoes, basil, and spinach, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Sprinkle each serving with Parmesan cheese.
