Tortellini vegetarian soup

This is one of my favorite quick winter soups to whip up. There are many variations of it with sausage, diced tomatoes etc. Here is a quick easy version.

1 bag frozen tortellini
3T butter
1 small onion minced
1 clove of garlic minced
1 bag fresh baby spinach
3 cups chicken broth
1 can cannelloni beans
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

In a large pot boil water and cook tortellini until  it begins to float. Drain into a strainer and leave to the side. In the same pot melt butter on medium low, add in onion until sauteed and then add in garlic, cook for 2 min. Add in spinach and stir until spinach has wilted completely. Add in broth and turn heat up to medium. Drain cannelloni beans and add in with tortellini and then when the soup has heated to desired temperature sprinkle parm cheese on top. Enjoy! I often serve with fresh rolls or big croutons.
