- 1 lb Ground Beef
- 2 Tbsp Tomato Paste
- 1 Tbsp Salt
- 1 tsp Pepper
- 1 cup Beef Broth
- 1 cup Peas

Add the vegetable oil to a large pot. Heat to medium-high heat and add onion and garlic. Cook until soft.
Once the onion and garlic is soft, add the ground beef, and continue cooking over medium-high heat. Season with tomato paste, salt, and black pepper. Stir together and break into crumbles.
Once the ground beef is browned, add the cup of beef broth. Mix and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add the peas and tortellini. Reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook for 10 minutes, until the tortellini and peas are warmed.
After 10 minutes, stir in the shredded cheese and cook until melted. Serve with fresh basil on top for extra flavor if desired. Enjoy!
