Tortellini Soup

Whenever I cook tortellini it makes me giggle because I hear my 3 year old nephew's voice in my head shouting... "torta-weeny!!" Kid loves his torta-weeny :) This is a quick soup and is versatile with other veggies. I wish I would have had zucchini to toss in... next time!

10 oz. package fresh tortellini (spinach, cheese or other)
1 small onion
4 cloves garlic
2-3 carrots
28 oz. can diced tomatoes
4 cups low sodium vegetable broth
1 tsp. basil
1 tsp. thyme
1 tsp. parsley

Dice onion and carrots, mince garlic.
In a large pot, saute onion and carrots with a bit of salt over med-high heat for 5 minutes.
Add garlic and cook another 1-2 minutes.
Add broth, 1 cup water, diced tomatoes with juice, basil, thyme, and parsley. Bring to a light boil.
Add tortellini and simmer for 10 minutes, or until tortellini is fully cooked.
Salt/pepper to taste.
