Let soup simmer for 20-30 minutes. Add tortellini and spinach and simmer for about ten minutes, until pasta is tender. Serve with shredded Parmesan. Crostini Slice baguette into ½ inch thick slices. Butter one side and place butter side down in a hot skillet until golden brown. Flip bread slices over and sprinkle with Parmesan while the other side gets golden brown.
