Oh yum!

One of my quick go to meals is a very simplified version of this which I love.

Chicken broth with shallot and garlic brought to a boil, add 3-cheese tortellini and pull from heat when al dente and add the fresh spinach. I'll have to add fresh mushrooms next time. I love the simple, brothy soups.
