Tips and FAQ’s

  • Freeze the soup by letting it cool completely and ladle into freezer safe baggies. Lay flat in the freezer on a baking sheet.
  • This recipe has not been tested in the slow cooker (so sorry!)
  • If you want a creamier soup, use an immersion blender to blend the soup before adding in the tortellini. (or food processor or blender).
  • This soup is versatile! Stir in hearty greens like kale or spinach at the end, add in mushrooms or carrots when sautéing the onions, stir in cooked Italian sausage if desired, and even use a different pasta shape if preferred.
  • If using frozen tortellini, cook them separately according to package directions and then stir into the soup.
  • When reheating leftovers, you may need to add more broth to thin out the soup.
  • Can use olive oil in place of butter if preferred.

Delicious. This is by far best tomato based soup I’ve made. Nice and smooth and not a overwhelming tangy flavor like all other tomato bases.


I have to say with a long ingredient list I did not believe this would be quick nor easy to make and it was! It was delicious on top of that. So excited to add to the cold weather dinner rotation!

This soup looks so delicious and comforting. I’m a fan of sun-dried tomatoes. Love that you use them in this recipe!

Thank you so much for this recipe! We wiped out the bowl clean..

My garden is still giving me tons of cherry tomatoes, so I was looking for a way to use them up. I blended up fresh tomatoes in place of the canned diced. Absolutely delicious. I’ll be making again. Thank you.


Tomato soup and tortellini! This is a big win for me and so perfect for the cold weather that we are starting to have.


Wonderful combination of cheesy and tomato-y!
