Tortellini Bean Soup

4 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 (9oz) pkg of Cheese Tortellini
1 (15oz) can white beans rinsed and drained
1 cup chopped fresh tomato
1/3-1/2 cup FRESH basil ( I usually rip the leaves into thirds)
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar ( I only use 1 1/2)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 cup parmesan cheese

Bring broth to boil, add tortellini and cook 6 minutes. Stir in beans, tomato and basil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Add vinegar, salt and pepper. Top each serving with parmesan cheese. Serves about 4 so I usually double it for our family of 5. It's good leftover too!
