Tortellini Soup

This recipe comes from The Best Freezer Cookbook.  It is great for those "soup" kind of days.  Two of my kids aren't big on soup but I figured they could pick out the ingredients they like (the tortellini and chicken) and still walk away from the table fed.  It is also a great way to use left over chicken you may have from another meal!

3 cloves garlic, minced
8 oz. fresh or frozen cheese tortellini
2 cans chicken broth (10oz each)
1 cup frozen peas
1 cup diced cooked chicken
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 Tbsp. chopped green onions
1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese (optional)

1.  In a large pot, bring 3 cups water and the garlic to a boil.  Add the tortellini; return to a boil.  Reduce heat to medium-high; cook stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or according to the package instructions.

2.  Add chicken broth and peas; return to a boil and cook for 2 minutes.  Add chicken; cook for 1 minute.  Stir in pepper and green onions.

3.  Serve sprinkled with Parmesan cheese
