1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon pepper
1 3/4
cups Progresso™ chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
2
cups water
1
package (9 oz) refrigerated cheese-filled tortellini
1
cup firmly packed fresh baby spinach leaves
2
medium green onions, sliced (2 tablespoons)
1
teaspoon dried basil leaves
2
tablespoons shredded fresh Parmesan cheese

Directions

Use one cup of sliced celery in place of the fennel.

To trim prep time, use washed baby spinach leaves. Select the small quantity needed for this stew from the grocery store salad bar.
