Tortellini and Spinach Soup

A super simple recipe that is really good! 

1 small onion, diced
2 carrots, thinly sliced
1 large can of low salt, non fat chicken broth (I use Swanson's) 49 ounces
1 8 ounce package of fresh cheese tortellini
1 bunch of fresh spinach, washed, de-stemmed, and chopped
pepper to taste
Romano cheese to top
can also add 1/2 can of white beans, rinsed for additional protein

In a large saucepan, combine the onion, carrots, and broth.  Bring to a boil.  Add the tortellini and simmer until they float to the top.  Gradually add the spinach, and allow it to "wilt".  Keep simmering until all the spinach has been added.  Top with grated Romano cheese.  Serve this with a green salad and fresh bread, and you are set for dinner!
