Don't be tempted to cook the tortellini in the soup; they will soak up too much of that irresistibly garlicky broth. Cook them separately, as the soup simmers, and stir them in at the last moment.

Recipe Ingredients for Tortellini and Spinach in Garlic Broth

2 tablespoons olive oil
8 cloves garlic, minced
3 cups water
3 cups organic vegetable broth
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 pound tortellini
1 pound spinach
1 tbsp Grated Parmesan, for sprinkling

Recipe Directions for Tortellini and Spinach in Garlic Broth

  1. In a large pot, heat the oil over moderately low heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the water, broth, and salt and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the tortellini until just done, about 4 minutes for fresh or 12 minutes for frozen. Drain.

  3. Add the spinach to the soup and cook until just wilted, about 1 minute. Stir in the tortellini. Serve the soup sprinkled with grated Parmesan and pass more of the grated cheese at the table.
