I loved this and so did my boyfriend, but since I didn't follow the original recipe and instead took up some of the ideas in the reviews, I gave it only 4 stars.
I started by heating a large oninon and fresh spinach in a bit of olive oil, then added the garlic and sauted for 2 more minutes. I then added a can of crushed tomatos (my boyfriend also doesn't care for tomato chunks) and the vegetable broth, as well as some dried basil, freshly ground pepper and freshly grated parmesan. I used a half bag each of frozen meat and cheese tortellini, but cooked them separately, so I could get a better idea of how much pasta I wanted in the soup (I ended up using all of what I had cooked). Right before serving, I grated additional parmesan into each bowl. Prepared this way, the dish wasn't bland at all, quick and easy to make, and except for the spinach, I had all ingredients already on hand. Will definitely make again.
