Matilda's Favorite Soup

This is a major staple in our household & was Matilda's birthday dinner when she turned two. It is super fast to throw together and we never seem to get sick of it.

Tortellini & Artichoke Soup

1 tsp olive oil
2 cups chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
1 tsp basil, oregano or italian seasoning or some combination
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 cups spinach
1 cup water
15 oz can cannellini beans
2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
15 oz can diced tomatoes
14 oz can artichoke hearts (I often substitute an entire bag of frozen artichoke hearts)
1 package cheese tortellini
1/4 cup fresh grated parmesan

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add chopped onion, bell pepper, seasonings and garlic. Saute 5 minutes or until tender. Add spinach and next 5 ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 2 minutes. Add tortellini and cook until heated thoroughly. Serve with cheese sprinkled on top. 

I am sure I have photos of this soup somewhere but for now all I can find is this one of M eating it.
