Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup

Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup one pot is an is an easy dinner recipe that bound to be a family favorite that's done in under 30 minutes. If you have cheese tortellinis at home you just might have everything else to make this delicious soup.

Other Tomato Soup Recipes we love are Crock Pot Tomato Soup, Tomato Basil Soup with Cheesy Bread, and Roasted Tomato Basil Soup with Orzo

Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup might seem out of place with summer right around the corner but we live in Washington so you never know what kind of weather we might have plus it's so good I would hate to hold out on you until fall.

This is one of those soups that makes your want to shove yo face into it. The kids asked if I would make it 2 nights in a row and LJ (the boy who doesn't like cheese) dug in for seconds, and I can't get enough of this Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup.

Plus did I mention dinner is done in under 30 minutes making it an easy dinner or lunch for any day of the week. Double high five, chest bump, score! 

Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup is a classic comfort food recipe everyone loves.

  • 60 ounces Canned Diced Tomatoes Plus Juice
  • 2 teaspoons Italian Seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Honey
Stir until well combined.

If you don't have honey you can add sugar to taste.

Cook for about 15 minutes or until veggies are soft.

Remove the center part from your blender and add 1/4th of the tomato mixture.  Place a clean old towel over the top to keep tomatoes from splattering and pulse until smooth. Repeat with remaining tomatoes.

Add 4 cups Chicken Stock and heat until simmering. Add Fresh Tortellini and cook for 3 minutes or as package recommends.

I find Costco has a really good quality product and one of our local grocery stores carries a locally made tortellini that passes the quality test. This is just my opinion and I received no compensation for saying that.. Just a little fyi.

  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 whole Medium Sized Onion, Chopped
  • 3 whole Carrots, Chopped Fine
  • 3 stalks Celery, Diced
  • 4 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1 pinch Red Pepper
