Tortellini, Bean and Pesto Soup

Pesto, Pesto, Pesto! If you love pesto then this is a recipe for you.  If you're not sure if you love pesto or not then this is also a recipe for you.  I LOVE this soup!  My friend Debbie introduced this recipe to our dinner group and ever since it has made a regular apperance at our table. 

Here's what you'll need:

2 tablespoons butter
1 finely chopped garlic clove
1/2 cup of chopped carrot
1/2 cup of chopped onion
1/2 cup of chopped celery
6 to 8 cups of water
2 teaspoons vegetable or chicken bouillon granules
1 can of drained kidney beans
10 oz of dried cheese-filled tortellini  (the best pasta ever invented!)
1 tablespoon parsley
1/4 teaspoon pepper
6 tablespoons of basil pesto
Grated parmesan cheese

Start by melting the butter in a large pot.  Once butter is melted add the garlic and veggies, cook for about 10 mins, stirring often.  Next add water and bouillon granules.  Heat this to boiling and then reduce heat to simmer.  Add in the beans, tortellini, parsley and pepper then cover and let the soup simmer for about 20 mins or until the tortellini is tender.  Top each serving with a generous helping of basil and cheese.

This soup amazing! Enjoy!
