Broccoli Tortellini Soup


Portion size 4 to 6

1 tbsp (15 mL) vegetable oil
1 onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp (2 mL) dried oregano
1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt
1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper
4 cups (1 L) vegetable stock or chicken stock
1 cup (250 mL) favourite pasta sauce
1/2 bag (454 g) frozen cheese tortellini or frozen meat tortellini
2 cups (500 mL) frozen cut broccoli
1/4 cup (60 mL) grated Parmesan cheese


In saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; fry onion, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 5 minutes.

Add stock and pasta sauce; bring to boil. Add tortellini; reduce heat, cover and simmer until pasta is almost tender but still firm, about 7 minutes.

Add broccoli and return to simmer; cook until piping hot and broccoli is tender-crisp, about 1 minute. Ladle into bowls; sprinkle with cheese.
