Easy Peezy Tortellini Soup!

 Here's a soup re-post...just in case you missed it!


Hubby and I went to vote and caught a movie "Flight"( excellent choice) and then a burger today.  We didn't get going to around 1 p.m. With some time to spare I was able to make Tortellini Soup and we had a nice bowl before we were off to vote. It's a easy to make quick soup and loaded with lots of healthy ingredients.

 I had bought a medium size head of Savoy cabbage.  Check out his link for more information about it:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Savoy_cabbage and hadn't planned on anything special to make with it so it became one of the ingredients.











1 medium size head Savoy cabbage (cut or break into small pieces).
1-32 oz. box of chicken broth
1-32 oz. box of beef broth
2 T olive oil
1 clove garlic minced
1  or 2 cans cannellini beans drained
1lb package cheese tortellini
grated Italian cheese

In a large pot saute garlic slowly in olive oil.  Cut and rinse cabbage and add to the pot along with broth and beans.  Bring to a slow boil and cook until cabbage is slightly tender.( It will be slightly crispy)  Turn heat to low and add 1 pkg. frozen cheese tortellini. Cook approximately 5 minutes more.  Serve topped with grated cheese.

Happy Cooking from my kitchen to yours,

M.J.
