Tortellini Vegetable Soup

Oh please forgive me, won't you? It's been awhile. I've been busy with things outdoors!! Finally it's getting warmer here, although I can't say anything about the wind... that's blowing harder than ever these days!! Ugh. Oh well, got the garden planted and the patio cleaned up and wood stained! 

And I am also trying some herbs this summer. Thyme, Rosemary, Dill, Cilantro, and Parsley!

Ooo laaa laaa! Look at that fabulous patio! Suzie likes it too!

And check out the newly stained wood. Very nice, huh?

Tortellini Vegetable Soup
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 small onion, chopped
3 carrots, peeled and chopped
1 large can diced tomatoes
1/2 tsp dried oregano
3 cups vegetable or chicken broth
1 bunch/bag fresh spinach
1 package (12 oz) cheese tortellini
Salt & pepper

In a large pot, heat the oil over medium high heat. Add in the chopped onion and carrots.

Cook for 5-7 minutes, until veggies are starting to soften, then add in garlic and cook 1 minute more.

Stir in the tomatoes, oregano, and broth; bring to a boil then reduce heat and cook for about 20 minutes, until all the veggies are soft. Stir in the spinach and tortellini. Add salt and pepper to taste. I think I may have added a little extra broth too... just see what you think, if it's too "chunky" or not.

Cook for 15 minutes more.
