This was my dinner tonight and it was wonderful! Easy to prepare, filling, and tasty. I served it with breadsticks to complete the meal.

Easy Tortellini Soup (from this month's Healthy Cooking)

1 medium onion, chopped
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) Hunt’s® Original Diced Tomatoes, undrained
1 package (9 ounces) refrigerated cheese tortellini or tortellini of your choice
3 cups chopped fresh spinach
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Shredded Parmesan cheese, optional

In a Dutch oven, saute onion in oil until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in broth and tomatoes. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add tortellini; cook for 7-9 minutes or until tender. Stir in the spinach, vinegar and pepper. Cook and stir until heated through and spinach is wilted. Sprinkle with cheese. Yield: 6 servings.

That does sound good.

-10 points for no picture. :D

+ 10 for using the words "wonderful" & "spinach" in the same post.
