Tomato-Tortellini Soup

This recipe will not earn me any awards for culinary innovation or high marks in the nutrition department, but it was ready in 15 minutes and we all (even the little people!) loved it! AND it's meat free and Jeremiah did not turn up his nose and ask for a burger. Delish.. I can't wait to make it again! (And I will.. Jeremiah asked if I would put in on the "rotation". See! It was a hit!)

Tomato-Tortellini Soup

2 14oz cans reduced-sodium chicken or vegetable broth
1 9oz package refrigerated or frozen tortellini (more if your babies are pasta hogs!)
4oz chive and onion cream cheese
1 10.75 or 11oz can condensed tomato or tomato bisque soup

In a medium saucepan, bring broth to boiling. Add tortellini; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. In a bowl, whisk 1/3 cup of the hot broth into the cream cheese until smooth. Return all to saucepan along with tomato soup; heat through. Makes 4 servings.
