Homemade tomato soup is quite possibly one of the best comfort foods you can have.  It’s rich and creamy, smooth in texture, and keeps you warm on a crisp fall day or cold winter night.  I want to share a recipe with a slight twist on traditional tomato soup because it includes 3 cheese tortellini.  This is a one pot meal that won’t disappoint.

The recipe can be found here, and this is how you make it:

Start by gathering all your ingredients and measuring out quantities.  I think this really helps assemble the soup because ingredients are ready to pour in when the necessary step is reached.

Heat oil in the bottom of a large pot.  Add the garlic and sauté until the garlic turns a golden-brown color.

Next add the tomato soup, sun dried tomatoes, milk, half and half, chicken stock, and spices.  Stir to combine and bring to a simmer.

Once simmering, add the tortellini.  This is what makes this a one pot meal.  You don’t have to cook the tortellini in a separate pot and combine with the soup later.  The simmering soup will heat the tortellini.  Allow the tortellini to cook for about 8 minutes, or according to the back of the package.

Once cooked, ladle into soup bowls and top with parmesan cheese.

I made grilled cheese sandwiches as a side dish.  Once grilled to perfection I cut into strips, so they could be dipped in the soup.  Super simple and one of the best combinations to eat together!

You can substitute any kind of tortellini – plain, spinach, multi-colored, you name it!  You can also skip the tortellini all together and simply have a bowl of soup.  Don’t want grilled cheese?  Serve with a sliced baguette for dipping or side salad.  Make a meal that you want to enjoy and be creative!

Once again, the recipe can be found here.

Happy Cooking!
