Make

  1. Heat a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add butter and then onions and a pinch of salt to melted butter. Saute until softened, 4 to 5 minutes.
  2. Add garlic and dried basil and saute for 1 minute more.
  3. Add crushed tomatoes, diced tomatoes, stock, and bay leaves. Bring to a simmer.
  4. Add tortellini to simmering soup and cook according to package directions. (Note: fresh tortellini will cook faster than dried, so be sure to check the recommended timing for the variety you bought.)
  5. When tortellini is tender, remove soup from heat and stir in vinegar (portion for soup). Season with some salt and pepper.
  6. Toss mixed greens with olives, tomatoes, and some of the vinaigrette. Add additional vinaigrette until salad is dressed to your liking.
  7. Ladle soup into bowls and top with parsley. Serve salad on the side. Enjoy!
