20-MINUTE TOMATO TORTELLINI SOUP
Raise your hand if you love soup season too! I totally do! When the temperatures fall into a wear-three-layers-of-clothes level, all I want is a big bowl of belly-warming soup, like my Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup or my Roasted Tomato Soup. Best if it’s full of flavor but quick and easy to make. One of the easiest ways to add flavor to a simple soup like this is to toast the seasoning in butter, along with garlic and onion. They become fragrant and you can actually taste them. I highly recommend trying it!
This 20-Minute Tomato Tortellini Soup is a family favorite around here. I love how quick and easy it is to whip up and my kids love the cheese filled pasta with their favorite soup. Lunch ready in 20 minutes! Done and done.
HOW TO MAKE TOMATO TORTELLINI SOUP?
- Start with sauteing garlic and onion in butter or olive oil. Add Italian seasoning when the onion is just translucent. Stirring often, saute for 2 minutes.
- Add all the liquids and simmer the soup for about 5 minutes. Add tortellini ( I used cheese-filled tortelloni which is just a little bit bigger than tortellini but you can use any kind you like ) and cook until done about 7 minutes.
- Remove from heat. Stir in half and half or heavy cream if desired. Garnish with chopped parsley or fresh basil and serve.
To make it creamy, add 1/4 cup of heavy cream or half and half to keep it light. I also love adding spinach to the simmering soup and garnish it with grated mozzarella soup.
