2 large garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 (10¾ ounce) cans of tomato soup
¼ cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped or 2 tablespoons sun-dried tomato paste
2 cups half-and-half

½ teaspoons salt
½ teaspoons pepper
1 9 ounce package of cheese-filled tortellini
½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Directions
Sauté garlic with the olive oil in a large stock pot over medium heat until golden brown. Be sure to keep an eye on it so it doesn’t get too brown or burnt.
