For Valentine's Day my fiance and I had a guest couple over for dinner, and since it was a special occasion with guests I decided to do a multi-course dinner with an Italian theme.
With the amount of work needed for the other parts of dinner I cheated and used premade tortellini.
My favorite way to have this is with my chicken, basil and goat cheese recipe for tortellini and ravioli. I promise, it is divine!
cheese tortellini (about 12 ounces) or about 2 cups homemade tortellini
shredded parmesan cheese (topper)
How To Make tortellini soup with basil
In the pot you plan to cook the soup, heat about 1 Tbsp olive oil on medium heat. Add onion and cook until starts to become soft.
Add garlic, spinach and 1/2 the basil. Cook for about 2-3 minutes.
Add chicken broth, tomatoes with juices and remaining basil. Bring to a boil.
Add tortellini and salt and pepper. Reduce heat to a low-medium setting. Simmer for about 20 minutes.
Serve with a sprinkle of shredded Parmesan cheese
