Tortellini in Brodo

One of the quickest, easiest, and most delicious soups I have ever tried.  My brother had this in a restaurant and I immediately fell in love with it!

1 8 oz package cheese or beef tortellini
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small onion
1 garlic clove
3 cups low sodium chicken or vegetable broth
1 tablespoon parsley

Chop up the onion and crush the garlic clove.  Heat the bottom of a sauce pan or stock pot with the oil over medium heat.  Toss in the onion and the garlic clove.  Saute until the onions become soft and the garlic clove turns light brown.  This should take about 5-7 minutes.  Add in the chicken broth and boil for 10 minutes.

Once boiled, remove the garlic clove.  You can also strain out the onions if you don't like the texture of them by running it through a strainer.

Keeping the broth on high heat, stir in the tortellini.  Allow to boil according to packaged directions.  My tortellini took about 5 minutes.  Once cooked, toss in the parsley, stir, and enjoy!
