Garlicky Tortellini Soup

This is another recipe I clipped from some magazine. I really need to get better about noting where the recipes came from, but my guess from the font on this one is Taste of Home magazine. The name drew me right in... Garlicky. Don't know if that is a real word at all, but I love it.

You will need some cheese tortellinis, spinach, parmesan cheese, canned tomoatoes, broth, butter, basil and LOTS of garlic. MMM Garlicky and Yay Pyrex!

Chop up the basil.

Chop up all of that gorgeous garlic. That is really all you have to do for prep except open the can of tomatoes.

Get some butter in a dutch oven or soup pot over medium high heat.

Add in all the garlic and cook for about 2 minutes. Try not to swoon as you smell it cooking.

Add in the broth, this is Turkey broth I made myself. Bring it up to a boil.

Throw in the pasta and cook half way according to the directions on the package. It will depend on if you are using frozen, fresh, dried, etc. Season with salt and pepper as well.

Add in the tomatoes and reduce the heat so it is simmering. Let it simmer until the pasta is cooked to your liking.

Add in the heap of spinach and the basil. Do not be alarmed it will reduce down in moments.

Taste for seasoning and adjust as you see fit.

This soup was a garlic lovers dream come true. If you used vegetable broth you could make this for your vegetarian garlic lover as well. I made the whole recipe of this and froze some for later, it was just as good defrosted and reheated.
