{Recipe Files}: One Pot Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup

I know some of you are intrigued already just by the two words "one pot" and you should be, because this soup is SO SO SO SO SO SO good. Did I emphasize enough how good it is? Because it is!! And since it's officially Fall (nevermind the fact that we have two 78 degree days ahead this week), this is the perfect time to try out a new, delicious soup recipe!
What You Need:
~1/2 of a large onion, diced
~1.5 tsp minced garlic (or 3 fresh, chopped)
~1 tsp olive oil
~1/2 tsp dried rosemary
~28 oz can diced tomatoes
~15 oz can tomato sauce (does not have to be pasta sauce)
~1/2 tsp dried oregano
~1/2 tsp dried basil
~1/2 tsp salt
~1/4 tsp pepper
~4 Cups chicken stock
~1/2 C heavy cream
~20 oz cheese tortellini
~shredded Parmesan cheese

The recipe list looks a bit long, but the majority of it is spices. 
Helpful hint for your wallet: buy all of the canned goods, chicken stock and the tortellini at Target. It's usually cheaper than at a regular grocery store by a few dollars and it's the exact same thing! In fact, minus the spices, I got everything else for this meal at Target.

What You Do:
1. Using a large soup pot, add in the onion, garlic, rosemary and olive oil and saute over medium heat for about 5 minutes (until the onion is translucent).

2. Add in the diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, oregano, basil, salt, pepper, chicken stock and heavy cream. Stir to combine and simmer for about 20 minutes.
3. Add the tortellini to the pot and cook for about 12-15 minutes, until the tortellini are cooked through. 
4. When it's done, garnish with Parmesan cheese (and extra basil if you'd like). And get ready for the most mouth-wateringly delicious soup that took very minimal effort to prepare!
This recipe made 5-6 servings for us, so plenty of leftovers (and the leftovers were GREAT the next day!)
Happy Eating!


  1. Yum, this sounds really good, and so easy!

  2. Yum! {And I'm totally laughing because 78° IS our fall. Ha!}

  3. I've never been a huge fan of tortellini, but I bet you could use just about anything in this! Maybe ravioli...
    The soup base sounds super tasty.

  4. This looks absolutely delicious! One pot meals are the best, especially on a weeknight when you don't have a million hours to prep/cook/clean up dinner.

  5. Looks scrumptious!! I usually make grilled cheese with regular tomato soup but with this.....everything is right there with the tortellini!! Yum!!

  6. i think i need to make this and sub out the cream. my mouth is watering! SO good

  7. You had me at one pot! Mark was just asking me the other day when I was going to start making soup. Definitely making this recipe this weekend!

  8. We make this same soup but throw in sausage (mostly for my husband lol)! It's so good and LOVE that it's only one pot!

  9. Yummy. I can't wait to have my kitchen back and make this soup!!!

  10. OMG ever since you snapped this, my mouth has been seriously watering! I am so so so writing this recipe down for a rainy (and hopefully cold) day to make this! Totally seems easy enough to do and I love getting most of my groceries at Target so I'll just snag this stuff at my next trip there!

  11. Making this recipe ASAP!! Looks so delicious! Making me hungry already! :) xoxo, R

  12. oh man. pinning this RIGHT NOW! And I love Katie's addition of the sausage - i'd definitely use spicy though!

  13. We make something just like this and add sausage - so delicious! I love hearty meals like this during the fall!

  14. YAAAASSSS! Anything with tortellini and you can sign me up! This sounds so delicious! It's perfect for winter. If the weather ever gets cold here, that is.

  15. If I had everything for this recipe I would make it tonight! Also if I didn't already have dinner planned haha! This looks so yummy and how easy!! Love it can't wait to try it!

  16. Yum! This soup is perfect for those chilly fall nights, if they ever decide to get here!

  17. making this ASAP! seriously my mouth is watering!

  18. I will definitely be making this! I think it would be especially good with a sausage-filled tortellini that I like. Target's prices for groceries are not bad. I also buy a fair amount of stuff at dollar stores.

  19. Oh my goodness I need to make this! It looks yummy and filling too. Great recipe!

  20. This looks SO good. I'm adding it to my "to make" list right now! I'm in Charlotte, NC and we are in the 80's still :( :( We've had a few "cooler" days but then right back up! I'm ready for soup weather!

  21. This looks so delicious! I told Ryan the other day that we need to get a dutch oven/soup pot thing solely so I can make soup this winter.

  22. Ok so I saw this post on Tuesday and decided to make it last night! You're right, it was DELICIOUS!! I loved everything about it. I can't wait to eat it for lunch today and tomorrow and probably again on Sunday night! Best part was I pretty much had everything I needed and just had to buy the chicken stock and tortellini. I can't wait to make it again when it gets really cold out! (Which at this rate will be never)

  23. haha You totally had me sold at one pot, but tortellini too?! Pinning it!!


I LOVE hearing your thoughts and comments--so, make my day and leave me some lovin'!
