Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup

Sunday, June 1, 2014
An easy to make soup at the end of a busy day. Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup is bound to be a family favorite that's done in under 30 minutes.

Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup recipe is easy to make creamy tangy tomato soup with cheese filled tortellini for an easy to make hearty dinner or lunch from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

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.


In a large pot over medium-high heat add olive oil and 1 medium sized onion, chopped.
 Sauté until onion starts to caramelize. 


Add 3 carrots, 3 celery stalks and 4 cloves garlic, mined. 


Add a pinch of red pepper.

Sauté until veggies start to soften and garlic becomes fragrant.

Add 60 ounces of canned tomatoes plus juice, 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning, 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper and stir until well combined.


Add 1 tablespoon honey and stir well.

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.

Remove from heat.

 Add 1 cup half & half or milk and 1/2 cup chopped basil, stir until well combined.

Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup is an easy meal done in under 30 minutes.

Serve Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup with crusty bread and fresh parmesan.

Now go get yo soup on!
