I whipped this delicious soup up on a chilly day when a friend and I both craved our favorite cold weather combo, grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup. Although it only takes a minute to throw together, this soup tastes anything but ordinary. Enjoy! The tortellini is actually half of a 9 ounce package.

This got a 4 because it was so easy but I did have to make modifications to this recipe. I altered the recipe to my own tastes/servings as follows: 1 10 0z can tomato soup 1 14 oz can diced tomatoes 1 1/2 soup cans of chicken broth kept seasonings same but added garlic powder and onion powder 1/2 pkg cheese tortellini this was so good. chicken broth i think makes a difference - also using tomatoes in it gives it more texture.

I would leave out the herbs and just add tortellini to the soup. Herbs in the tomato soup just didn't mesh well at all. Tasted like a very watered down flavorless tomato sauce. Read More

This was a very good soup. I'm not much of a tomato soup eater but this didn't taste anything like I was expecting. It was more of an italian tasting soup with all of the spices that you put in. My fiance & I topped this off with some grated parmesean cheese and it was a very nice addition. Very yummy & super quick & easy to make. Read More

I thoroughly enjoy this soup and make it often! I use the dry tortellini by Barilla which is inexpensive, tasty and doesn't expire quickly like the refrigerated kind. I have had better luck boiling the tortellini as directed on the package and then adding it to the soup when it's cooked. I also enjoy it with some fresh grated cheese on top. Thanks so much for this recipe! Read More

This was one of the fastest easiest and tastiest recipies I've used in a while. If the tortellini isn't left in for too long it tastes wonderful. If you aren't big on spices it also tastes fine without. I cooked this for about 35 people in my hall for lunch and everyone loved it and someone else made it another day too. I highly reccommend this. Read More

This is now my favorite thing to cook. My mom asks me to cook this about once a month. It's quickly become "my signature dish." Thanks so much! I refer everyone to this site. Read More

This recipe is delicious and freezes well. The spices really make it taste homemade. I used Barilla tortelloni which I'm not hot about - I love Buitoni Mushrooms and Cheese Tortelloni and will try that next time instead. I also cooked the tortellini separately then added it in afterwards. I have a sneaking suspicion that if you use some chicken broth instead of water that this could totally taste homemade. But everything worked well. I put everything into single serving containers then froze it for later. Fabulous! Read More

The kids loved this! It was very easy and actually pretty good. I used dried tortellini and boiled it in water for about 8 minutes before adding to the soup. Read More

Great soup and easy! I did make some changes though. I used a family size can of tomato soup plus a can of Campbell's Pepper Jack soup. Instead of water I used a can of Beef Broth and milk. I used 1 t. each of the oregano basil and parsley which I thought was plenty. I also added a can of diced tomatoes extra tortellini & about 1/2 C. grated parmesan. The Pepper Jack soup made it a bit spicy but just right for our family! Read More
