-4 cups chicken brother (sub vegetable broth to make this one vegetarian)
-1 can Cannellini beans, drained
-1/2 cup shredded FRESH basil
-1/4 tsp salt
-2/3 cup shredded parmesan cheese
-1 (9 oz) package of any fresh cheese-filled tortellini, uncooked (I use DiGiorno mozzerella-garlic)
-1 cup chopped tomatoes (fresh or canned)
-2 tbspns balsamic vinegar
-2 cloves garlic
1. Sautee garlic in olive oil in the bottom of a pot large enough to cook the soup in.
2. Add broth and bring to a boil, then add tortellini and cook 5-6 minutes.
3. Stir in tomatoes and beans. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
4. In a small bowl, stir basil, parmesan, salt, and vinegar together. Add to soup once it has been removed from heat.
