{Recipes} Tortellini, Tomato & Spinach

I made another one of my mom's soups tonight, and I must say, it's my new favorite. I LOVE it, and I have plenty left over for lunches this week. Good thing because tomorrow is going to be rainy and cold, which is PERFECT soup weather ;-}

~ 1 large vidalia onion, diced
~ 1 tsp minced garlic
~ 1 bag baby spinach
~ 2 cans diced tomatoes {I used one can diced and one can stewed}
~ 2 bags cheese tortellini
~ 2 boxes chicken shortcuts {I used a 22oz bag of Perdue grilled chicken strips}
~ 2 large cans or boxes of chicken broth
~ paremsan cheese

1. In a stock pot, saute diced onion in EVOO until translucent. Add garlic {just for a minute}.
2. Add the broth, tomatoes, and chicken {cut chix into smaller pieces}. Bring to a low boil for approximately 15 minutes.
3. Next, add the tortelli and cook for about 10-15, or until tortellini is cooked.
4. Turn down heat and add spinach until it wilts {will not take long for this to happen}.
5. Turn heat off so tortellini does not get mushy.
6. Sprinkle a little parmesan cheese on top of soup and serve.

Not only delicious, but this is also a quick and easy soup, which might just be my VERY favorite thing about it ;-}
