Recipe from Stephanie Cooks

Easy, quick weeknight meal!  This only takes about 10 minutes to make, and the only prep work involved is chopping up a tomato and carrot.  This is perfect for those weeknights when you have no time, yet you really want a good meal. 🙂  Serve with some hearty bread or salad.

I added in the carrot and some fresh basil because I had them in my refrigerator.

Ingredients:
4 c chicken broth
1 package tortellini
3 c baby spinach
1 tomato, seeded and chopped
1-2 carrots, diced
1/4 c Parmesan cheese
1/4 t Italian seasonings
1/4 t garlic powder
salt and pepper, to taste
Fresh basil, chopped – for garnish

Directions:
Bring broth to a boil in a medium saucepan.  Add the tortellini and cook until almost done.

Add in the remaining ingredients (except basil) and cook over low heat until spinach is wilted.  Season to taste and season each serving with basil.
