Mom's Creamy Tortellini Tomato Soup

Rated as 4.39 out of 5 Stars

"This is a creamy, rich, delicious soup. Most of the people I cook for are very picky and this one turned out to be a crowd pleaser. Serve with fresh Italian bread on a cold winter's night! This soup would be great with either chicken or even meatballs instead of sausage; that just happened to be what I had on hand that particular day."

  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat; cook and stir sausage and garlic until sausage is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink. Drain and discard any excess grease.
  2. Melt butter in a large stock pot over medium heat; whisk in flour, salt, and black pepper until smooth. Gradually whisk in chicken broth and red wine. Stir in tomatoes and onion soup mix. Simmer until thickened and flavors have blended, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in cooked sausage and basil. Continue to simmer for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Stir tortellini into soup; simmer until tortellini are tender, about 15 minutes. Add half-and-half, stirring until soup is hot, about 5 minutes more. Serve in large bowls and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

Yum! Very good soup. It turns out like a rich tomato bisque, actually, with tortellini. I did make a few changes based on what we had on hand. I don't have or use half and half because I'm l...

We really loved this. Only added 1/2 cup of the flour but added a handful or parm at the end to the soup. Also threw in the left over stock from the box, probably 1/2 cup. I also added 1/2 tsp ...

This is so delicious! The only change I would make is instead of making it as a soup, I'd pour it over tortellini (more like a sauce) instead of adding the tortellini to the soup. As a soup, i...

I'm giving it 4 stars. This recipe is such a great jump start recipe to add your own twist. I used chicken which was awesome. I didn't add the onion soup mix, instead used a onion blend I had fr...

As others did, I reduced the flour and added 2 more cups of broth. I also did half skim milk with half cream, and substituted turkey sausage in. Reduced the calories a bit, but still full of fla...
