    Water, 8 cups
    Better Than Boullion Chicken Base, 4 teaspoons
    Onion, 1 small, chopped
    Leftover chicken breast (no skin) - 3 breasts (about 7 ounces), cut into bite-sized pieces
    Spinach, frozen, 1 package (10 oz)
    Tortellini, pasta with cheese filling, 3 cups (8 ounces)


If a less salty taste is desired, reduce chicken base to 3 teaspoons. Chicken broth may also be substituted for the water and chicken base.


Put water, chicken base, onion and chicken into a large pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium heat. Continue to simmer until the onion begins to turn translucent, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, put frozen spinach into a microwaveble bowl with 2 tablespoons of water. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave on high heat until spinach is hot, about 8-9 minutes.

Uncover spinach and add it to the soup mixture. Add tortellini. Bring mixture to a boil, then simmer for another 15 minutes until tortellini is cooked all the way through.
