Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup

Made with condensed tomato soup, heavy cream, and cheese tortellini, this Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup is a great comfort meal for any night, especially in winter.

Soups are always a great meal, they make enough for leftovers (at least in our house) and are comforting. Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup makes me think of grilled cheese but in a soup form. Ok, that sounds gross, but trust me, this is delicious!

It is a soup based with condensed tomato soup and heavy cream, with cheese tortellini in it. The cheese and tomato soup are what make me think of grilled cheese. This soup is also great because it doesn’t take too long to make, either. It doesn’t have to simmer for hours or require a lot of work.

I love cheese tortellini and almost always have some in the freezer. It’s great for nights that I need a quick dinner, and this soup fits with that notion. Fresh, homemade bread goes really well with the soup to dip in it. Of course, that makes it even more like grilled cheese then!

Eventually, I would love to find a recipe for canned tomato soup. I’ve tried a few things before with this recipe, and it doesn’t work well. So far, the canned stuff is the best for this. But I will keep trying now and then and let you know if I figure it out.

Step by Step

Heat the olive oil in a large stockpot over medium heat. Mince the garlic and add it to the warm oil. Saute for a few minutes, until the garlic is fragrant.

Add both cans of tomato soup, the tomato paste, half and half cream, chicken broth, and all of the seasonings.

Bring the soup to a simmer and stir frequently until everything is well combined. Then drop the frozen tortellini into the soup and cook until it is all floating.

Once the tortellini has finished cooking, ladle the soup into serving bowls and top with parmesan cheese.

  1. Although I’m not really a soup person but I must tell you got on your side here with a great recipe. I’m also not a cook… But I’m going to pass on this to my mum and she’ll be happy to prepare this for me. I’ll surely get back to you when I finally get to enjoy this soup.

    I’ll take your word, ha ha it does sound a bit … But I am all in for a great tasting and super easy recipe. Will try this.

  3. Gayathri Lakshminarayanan

    I am a vegetarian, I am going to try the recipe with vegetable broth. Hope it turns as good as the other one.


  4. This sounds delicious! I love tomato soup – particularly at this time of year… it’s comfort food now the weather is getting colder. I’ve never tried it with tortellini in though so need to give it a try!

  5. Yum! I was never a tomato soup fan but I bet this is fantastic with the tortellini. My kids don’t eat much soup so I bet there would be plenty of leftovers for my husband and I. Do you think this would freeze well?

    1. I haven’t tried freezing the soup before. I’m not quite sure how it would hold up. But the leftovers are great the next day. You could probably cut the recipe in half to make less at a time, though.

  6. Oooooo yum!!!! It just snowed here in NY today so it’s officially soup weather!! I will have to give this one a try this winter!!
