It's me again. Anyone else making dinner out there? ;)
So anyway, I got this recipe from Ralphie too and it's become quite a favorite.
2 Tbsp butter
6 garlic cloves, chopped (I usually use the jarred minced garlic in oil)
4 cups chicken broth (I usually use 4 cups water with 4 bouillon cubes. This recipe could be vegetarian if you use a vegetable based broth.)
2 1/2 cups frozen cheese tortellini or 1/2 of a 19 oz. package
1 14 oz can diced tomatoes (with juice)
6 oz baby spinach leaves, coarsely chopped
1/2 tsp. dried basil
optional: Parmesan cheese
Melt butter in medium saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and saute about 1 1/2 minutes. Add broth and bring to a boil. Add tortellini and cook about 5 min. Add tomatoes and juice. Bring to boil again, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer about 5 min. Stir in spinach (it may look like too much but it wilts quickly) and basil and heat until spinach is wilted. Serve sprinkled with Parmesan cheese.
