Tomato Tortellini Soup

 I didn't take this picture. Wish I had, because it looks good!

Holy cow, this is good soup! I'm not a huge fan of tomato soup, but this was delicious. I even heated it up for lunch the next day. It's that good. A few changes that I made: I halved the recipe, because I wasn't serving 10. And, I used sausage tortellini. TRY THIS.

Tomato Tortellini Soup- serves 10
  • 1 package (9 ounces) refrigerated cheese tortellini
  • 2 cans (10-3/4 ounces each) reduced-sodium condensed tomato soup, undiluted
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 cups 2% milk
  • 2 cups half-and-half cream
  • 1/2 cup chopped oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Additional shredded Parmesan cheese, optional

Directions

  • Cook tortellini according to package directions.
  • Meanwhile, in a Dutch oven, combine the soup, broth, milk, cream, tomatoes and seasonings. Heat through, stirring frequently. Drain tortellini; carefully add to soup. Stir in cheese. Sprinkle each serving with additional cheese if desired. Yield: 10 servings (2-1/2 quarts).
