WW Tortellini-Tomato Soup

If you haven't figured out already, WW is weight watchers. This is my favorite soup EVER. So, so, SOOO good. It calls for a 9 ounce package refrigerated 3 cheese tortellini (cheese ravioli also works), but I buy a bigger package of the frozen stuff, coz J doesn't care much for the soup part so I just add in some extra tortellini for him. I love a big bowl with some crunchy, buttered French bread to dip in it. Yum. Can't wait for fall!

2 tsp olive oil
1 1/4 cups chopped onion (about 1 medium)
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 (14 oz each) fat free reduced sodium chicken broth
1 (28 oz) can crushed tomatoes
1/2 cup water
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 (9 oz) package refrigerated 3 cheese tortellini
1/4 cup (1 oz) preshredded fresh Parmesan cheese (don't use the grated stuff, if you don't shred it fresh yourself at least buy the shredded kind in a can, Kraft makes some in the refrigerated section)

Heat oil in Dutch oven over med-high heat. Add onion; saute' 5 minutes or til tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute. Add broth and next 5 ingredients. Bring to boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Add tortellini; simmer, uncovered, 5-7 minutes or til pasta is tender ( frozen might take a few minutes longer, it floats when it's done). Ladle soup into bowls; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Yield: 6 servings (serving size 1 1/4 cups soup)
