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
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.
