It was good. I used Great northern Beans because I didn't know what Garbonzo Beans were. (quick trip to the store instead of researching first!) However I guessed on the garlic amount because it was not listed, and added too much. I used dried Tortellini and think that fresh would be better as well as fresh basil instead of dried. Trial and error... I will make it again. Thank you for sharring.
