Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup

Pinterest… Oh, Pinterest….

There are so many tasty looking foods on Pinterest these days… over and over, I find myself pinning recipes that I’m dying to make.  Considering that my fellow pinners are sharing tons of these recipes with me daily, it’s really hard to keep up.

I’ve even started a separate Pinterest board for the recipes that I try… click here to see.  I’ve started including my reviews too, so pin if you wish, but check the comments to see if it comes NTTC recommended.

When I found this one, I think it took me TWO days to get the ingredients together and to make it.  I had some fat-free half and half in my fridge from my previous Bolognese sauce recipe that I had made, so it was a great way to leverage what I had!

Yeah, that creamy, amazing soup you see above was made by little ol’ me.  Oh, and let me surprise you by telling you it clocks in at LESS THAN 300 calories!

I will make this dish again and again and again… it even got the red alert text to all my closest chefs:  You have to make this!  Consider this YOUR text!

Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup

From Taste of Home

Serves 5

INGREDIENTS

1/2 package (4.5 ounces) refrigerated cheese tortellini
1 can (10-3/4 ounces each) reduced-sodium condensed tomato soup, undiluted
1 cup vegetable broth
1 cup skim milk
1 cup fat free half-and-half cream
1/4 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. dried basil
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 cup reduced fat grated Parmesan cheese

INSTRUCTIONS

1.  Cook tortellini according to package directions, minus 2 minutes.  Note:  I cooked mine about 2 minutes less, so that my tortellini wouldn’t get to soggy.  I thought they were PERFECTION.

2.  Meanwhile, in a Dutch oven, combine the soup, broth, milk, cream, tomatoes and seasonings.  Heat through, stirring frequently.

3.  Drain tortellini; carefully add to soup.

4.  Stir in cheese.

5. Sprinkle each serving with additional cheese if desired. 

6.  Grab a spoon and clean that bowl!

    Looks delicious. When I eat pasta, I get hungry again soon after. Would you consider using full fat dairy products? I’m thinking perhaps they would help to delay hunger for a few hours, thus canceling the effects of the extra calories. What do you think?

      You definitely could, although I found this recipe to be very filling!

    You had me at Creamy. That looks SO good! And I love that it has sun dried tomatoes in it. So making this before it gets too warm out.
