  • Cusine

Ingredients

2 Tbsp olive oil

1 small yellow onion

4 cloves garlic

1 28 oz. can tomato sauce

1 28 oz. can crushed or diced tomatoes

4 cups vegetable broth

1.5 tsp dried basil

1.5 tsp dried oregano

15-20 cranks fresh cracked pepper

1 12 oz. package frozen cheese tortellini

1 10 oz. box frozen spinach

salt to taste

Directions

Dice the onion and mince the garlic. Cook both in a large pot along with the olive oil over medium-low heat until they are soft and translucent (about 5 minutes). Add the can of tomato sauce, the can of crushed (or diced) tomatoes, and vegetable broth to the pot. Add the basil, oregano, a healthy dose of freshly cracked pepper, and stir to combine. Increase the heat to medium-high and bring up to a simmer (about 10 minutes). Add the frozen tortellini and frozen spinach (no need to thaw either one). Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally to break up the frozen spinach. Cook until the heated through, the spinach has completely incorporated, and the tortellini is tender (about 10 minutes). Season to taste with salt, if needed.
