Tomato Tortellini Soup

Tomato soup is my daughter’s absolute favorite meal and I mean, what’s not to love?  It’s delicious and the perfect lunch or dinner…  and ready in just minutes! We love adding things like fresh croutons, a dash of cream, bacon, or of course, tortellini! It’s great served with grilled cheese roll ups or a fresh caesar salad.

How To Store This Soup

The tortellini in this soup can get soggy if you have leftovers so we leave it on the side and always combine just before serving.

If you’d like to freeze this soup, add the cream once heated and defrosted (and freeze the tortellini separately). Serve this easy recipe with 30 Minute Dinner Rolls or crusty bread for dipping and a big fresh Easy Italian Salad.

  1. Can I substitute crushed tomatoes for the diced tomatoes? I don’t have a hand mixer to blend the soup mixture.

    1. Hi Jessica,
      I have only made this as written, but I believe this will be a fine substitution.

  2. I am pinning this recipe. This is great. It combines 2 of my kids favorite things, tomato soup and tortellini, so I know it’s something they will actually eat. And it’s quick enough for those busy activity nights. Coming up with new things to make on those super busy nights is hard.

  3. Love how you enhanced canned tomato soup with this recipe! Sounds and looks amazing! And love how easy it is to make! :)

      1. I couldn’t find fresh tortellini, can I substitute dried tortellini and if so how much would I need to cook?

      2. Yes Cheree, you can use dry tortellini instead. In step 2 you can cook the tortellini according to the package directions, then follow recipe as directed. You would use the same amount. I hope that helps!

  4. Love it when kids request something again! That means it’s a for-sure menu item! Especially when it’s ready in 15 minutes!
