Ingredients for Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup
Simple ingredients, but big on flavor. Using shortcuts from the condensed soup to sun dried tomatoes will deliver exquisite complex tomato flavor without the extra work. Everything is easy to find at your local store. Look for the tortellini in the refrigerated section with other pastas, and meats. You can use frozen too. Just follow the directions for cooking.
- Cheese Tortellini: I used refrigerated but frozen can work too.
- Condensed Tomato Soup: Gives intense tomato flavor which is amazing.
- Vegetable Broth: Can be substituted for chicken broth
- Milk: Helps create that creaminess with less fat.
- Half and Half: Because you want a good amount of creaminess.
- Oil Packed Sun-Dried Tomatoes: Adds flavor and spices.
- Onion and Garlic Powder: Flavor and depth.
- Dried Basil: Basil just goes with tomatoes
- Salt: Just to taste
- Parmesan Cheese: A beautiful complimentary flavor.

Tips and Variations for Tomato Tortellini Soup
Creamy tomato soup is such a classic. I love the added cheese tortellini to this soup. It gives it such great texture and taste. There are so many little variations you can do with this to make it your own. How ever you make it, just make it!
- Heartier: Add some protein to make it a bit meatier. Ground beef or even better ground Italian sausage for a hit of spice too.
- Veggies: Sneak in some veggies by pureeing cooked diced carrots, cauliflower, celery or squash.
- Spinach: Add chopped spinach about 5 min before serving to give it color and flavor
- Crunch: Serve with croutons to go on top for a bit of a crunch.
- Tortellini: Both frozen and fresh tortellini can be used in this recipe with great success. Take note that with leftovers, the tortellini will continue to absorb liquid and become large. The great thing about tortellini, however is that the structure keeps it from getting overly soggy. You can also substitute cheese ravioli for the tortellini.
- Speaking of Leftovers: This will keep wonderfully in the fridge for about 3 days.
Can I freeze this Soup
Yes you can freeze this! Just don’t put in the cream or the tortellini. Cook the soup as directed leaving the tortellini and cream out. Let the soup cool completely. Place the soup in either a freezer safe container that you can take out all the air. Or I like to use freezer bags. I can get most of the air out of them and I can freeze the soup laying it flat in the freezer for easy stacking. This will keep for 3-4 months. When ready to use thaw the soup overnight in the fridge. I like to heat it best over the stove on medium heat. While it heats cook and drain the tortellini according to the package directions. Stir in the tortellini and cream and heat thoroughly.
Make it in the Slow Cooker
This can easily be adapted for a slow cooker. Which is even better on super busy days.
- Cook and drain the tortellini according to package directions and set aside.
- Add all the ingredients except the tortellini and cheese to the slow cooker and cook on low for 4-6 or high for 2-3 hours.
- 15 min before serving stir in the tortellini and parmesan cheese.
