Tasty Tuesdays : Tortellini and Spinach Soup

I'm going to make this one short and sweet. We loved this soup. I made it with homemade vegetable broth, so I'm interested to see how it compares when I use store-bought. Because I'd made the broth in a large batch ahead of time, this recipe really took no time at all. 

Simple Tortellini & Spinach Soup 
2 T olive oil
4 large garlic cloves, minced
4 c vegetable broth
2 c water
1/2 t salt
1/2 t pepper
1/3 c grated parmesan cheese (plus more for garnish)
1 handful fresh basil leaves, chopped
2 c coarsely chopped fresh baby spinach
2 bags frozen cheese tortellini (apx 25 oz)

In a large pot, heat oil on medium-high and add garlic. Stir 2 minutes until golden brown. Add vegetable broth, water, salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Stir in parmesan cheese, basil, spinach and tortellini. Cook 5-8 minutes, until tortellini is tender. Season to taste with salt and pepper and transfer to individual serving bowls. Top with a drizzle of olive oil and grated parmesan cheese.
