Directions

1.Melt the butter in a pan over medium heat, add the onion and cook until tender, about 5-7 minutes. 2.Add the garlic and red pepper flakes and cook until fragrant, about a minute. 3.Add the flour and cook for another minute. 4.Add the broth, tomatoes, tomato paste and tortellini, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until the tortellini is tender, about 10 minutes. 5.Add the parmesan, let it melt, add the spinach, let it wilt, add the cream, season with salt and pepper to taste, remove from heat before adding the basil. Option: Puree some or all of the diced tomatoes. (I like to puree half of them.) Option: Add 2 cups of cooked and shredded chicken or 8 ounces of cooked Italian sausage to make it even heartier. Option: Replace the fresh basil with 2 tablespoons basil pesto.
