Too-Easy Tortellini Soup

This really was too easy! It's from the Taste of Home 30 minute recipes cookbook.

Prep/cook time: 20 min.
Serves: 6


4 cups chicken broth
1 package (9 ounces) refrigerated cheese tortellini
1 can (15 ounces) white kidney or cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
1 can (14-1/2 ounces) Italian diced tomatoes, undrained
1-1/2 teaspoons dried basil
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
Shredded Parmesan cheese and coarsely ground pepper, optional


In a large saucepan, bring broth to a boil. Stir in tortellini. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in the beans, tomatoes and basil. Simmer for 4-6 minutes or until pasta is tender. Stir in the vinegar. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and pepper if desired.
