2 packages (32 oz. each) chicken bone broth (8 cups)
4 sprigs thyme
½ cup shredded carrots
1 package (12 oz.) Cheese & Spinach Tortellini pasta

Ingredient Tip: Bone broths often have more protein than traditional broth because in their production more meat is used, in addition to bones, to add flavor and nutrients. Feel free to substitute standard canned or homemade chicken broth when making your spinach and cheese tortellini soup.
