Tortellini Soup

THANK YOU AMY! This recipe comes from my dear friend, Amy. We make this dish 2-3 times a month. The boys request this dish weekly. It is sooo good and easy to prepare. Enjoy!

1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. butter
3-4 cloves garlic
1 can stewed tomatoes or chopped up fresh tomatoes
1 handful of baby spinach, chopped up
2 cans 14 oz. chicken broth or 1 box (or homemade chicken stock)
9 oz. cheese or pesto tortellini
1 tsp. basil
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

Saute butter and/or olive oil & garlic in the bottom of the pot. Add 2 cans (or 1 box) of chicken broth and a can of stewed tomatoes. Bring to a boil. Add tortellinis and cook 10 minutes. Then add basil, chopped baby spinach and Parmesan cheese. Cook 10 more minutes and top with more cheese to serve.
