Tortellini Soup

I have today off, which is really nice and I got a chance to make something so I have lunches this week. I found this recipe awhile back and have been meaning to make it, but never got the chance until now. I made Tortellini Soup; it is really good and super easy. Really though, there isn't much to the recipe, so I wouldn't even call it a recipe.

Here is is:

Low-fat Cheese tortellini
30 oz chicken broth
4 oz chopped frozen spinach, thawed
garlic, browned
stewed tomatoes

I'm one of those people who boils any type of pasta/potato and drains it before adding it to anything, because I like to remove the starch. This recipe called for cooking the tortellini in the chicken broth, which I didn't do - I resorted to my starch removal method. It really isn't worth while writing the instructions because it's a soup, and soups really just consist of adding your ingredients and enjoying your creation. I suppose though I should write something however: cook tortellini, brown garlic in same saucepan, add ingredients, cook, eat. There. Enjoy!
