Food Friday - Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup

Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup
adapted from Key Ingredient

I've had this recipe pinned for awhile and decided to finally make it.  It was simple and had basic ingredients I knew we would like.  It really is just a glorified Tomato Soup with Tortellini but it would make a great "company" soup because it looks fancy but it super easy to make.  One change I will make next time is to not use as much Italian Seasoning - I would probably cut it in half :-)  I served some simple ham sandwiches with this soup - Hawaiian Rolls with a Ham Steak that I had fried up in a pan and cut into small pieces.  It was very good! 


2 whole large Cloves Of Garlic Minced
2 Tbl Olive Oil
2 10¾ oz Cans of Condensed Tomato Soup
¼ cup Sun Dried Tomatoes, chopped or 2 Tbl Of Sun Dried Tomato Paste
2 cups Half-and-half
2 cups Chicken Stock
1 tsp Onion Powder
1 Tbl Italian Seasoning
½ tsp Salt
½ tsp Pepper
1 whole 9 Oz Package Of Cheese Filled Tortellini
½ cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese, for garnish



Saute garlic with the olive oil in a large stock pot over medium heat until golden brown. Be sure to keep an eye on it so it doesn’t get too brown or burnt. When the garlic is done, add tomato soup, tomatoes, half and half, chicken stock and spices. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, drop tortellini into the soup. Cook according to the package directions. After tortellini are cooked, ladle soup into bowls and top with parmesan cheese
