Cheese-Tortellini Soup

Here is a perfect recipe for a fast, delicious meal. Don't be afraid of the spinach! My kids & husband loved it (much to my surprise).

3 slices ready to serve bacon, chopped
1/3 c chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 c reduced-sodium chicken broth
3 c frozen cheese-filled tortellini
2 c fresh baby spinach, chopped
Black pepper
Parmesan cheese

In a large saucepan, cook bacon over medium-high heat for about 3 minutes or until crisp. Add onion. Cook for 3 minutes more. Stir in garlic. Cook for 1 minute more. Add broth. Bring to boiling. Stir in tortellini. Return to boiling. Reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, according to package directions. Add spinach for the last few minutes of cooking. Season to taste with pepper & parmasan cheese.
