This hearty soup combines navy beans, (which boasts magnesium, iron and calcium) tomatoes and artichoke hearts to make a perfect main or side dish. This dish uses tortellini, but you can use any pasta you like and it would go well. Artichokes are one of the top vegetable sources of vitamin K, which plays a role in promoting bone health. They are also rich in antioxidants, calcium, potassium, manganese and phosphorous.Tortellini-and-Bean-Soup1
