  5. 2 T Olive Oil

  6. 5 Garlic Cloves, minced

  7. 3 C Water

  8. 3 C Home-made Chicken Stock or canned low sodium Chicken Broth

  14. In a large pot, heat oil over moderately low heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.

  15. Add water, broth and salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered for 10 minutes.

  16. Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook tortellini until just done, about 4 minutes for fresh or 12 minutes for frozen, and drain. (Don't cook tortellini in the soup. It will soak up too much of the broth.)
