Ingredients
1 (16 oz.) jar Sweet & Sour Red Cabbage, not drained
2 tsp. olive oil
1 medium bell pepper, diced about 1/2"
2 tsp. fresh thyme, chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
4 cups chicken broth
2 cups water

1 (15 oz.) can Great Northern Beans, drained and rinsed
1 medium zucchini, quartered lengthwise, then sliced 1/4" thick

Directions

Drain cabbage well (reserving liquid). Set cabbage and liquid aside. Heat oil in large (4-1/2 quart) pot. Cook bell pepper, thyme and garlic 3 to 5 minutes, until pepper begins to soften. Add broth, water, tortellini, and beans; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add zucchini and continue simmering, partially covered, until zucchini and tortellini are just tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in cabbage, 2 tablespoons reserved cabbage liquid and tomato; add salt and pepper. Sprinkle with Parmesan, if desired.
