Creamy Minestone Tortellini Soup

This soup was delicious, I loved that it used tortellini. It was very filling and everyone in my family loved it. My 10 year old took the leftovers to school the next day! This recipe was adapted from Cooking Classy.

2 tbsp olive oil
1 cup diced onion
1 cup diced carrots
1 cup diced celery
1 1/2 tbsp minced garlic
42 oz chicken or vegetable broth
2 (14oz) cans diced tomatoes
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 1/2 cups cut and quartered zucchini
2 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1 (14oz can) kidney beans
9oz refrigerated cheese tortellini
2 cups chopped fresh spinach
1 1/4 cups half and half
salt and pepper

Heat oil in a large pot and saute onions, carrots and celery until tender. Stir in the garlic and saute for 2 minutes. Add in the broth, tomatoes, tomato paste, zucchini, basil, oregano and thyme. Season with salt and pepper then bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Stir in the tortellini and kidney beans and cook for 7 minutes. Stir in the spinach and half and half and cook for another 5 minutes then serve.
