I know you'll love this soup recipe I adapted from a recipe handed out by my favorite local supermarket, Central Market in Poulsbo, WA. It uses tortellini, white beans and kale. Yum!
3 Tbsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp dried thyme
4 cups chopped kale
10 cups chicken or veggie stock
1 15 oz can white beans, rinsed and drained
1 9 oz package fresh cheese tortellini
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
Heat oil in large, heavy pot over med-high heat. Add next 3 ingredients and saute until onions are soft, about 10 minutes. Add broth and bring to a boil. Stir in kale and beans. Reduce heat to low and simmer until kale is wilted. Add tortellini. Simmer until pasta is tender, about 5 mintues.
