Tomato Tortellini soup. Two of my family's favorites (tomato soup and tortellini) in one dish. Sounds like a winner.
I really was hesitant to use the canned condensed tomato soup for this recipe only because I have a really, really great tomato soup that I love to make from scratch that isn't difficult at all. But I was decided against it because it was planned for dinner on a night when we are usually crazy busy and I figured it would be a good time saver. Condensed tomato soup isn't the worst short cut to feed my family.
I had to work tonight so I needed a recipe that was easy to toss together and travels and reheats well. Soups usually fit that bill. I started the pasta boiling and mixed together all the other ingredients.
Less than 30 minutes later, I was ladling up my to-go bowl of soup.
Total cost: around $10 for a big pot of soup--easily 8-10 servings
Total time: 20 minutes
Final verdict: My husband and I really enjoyed it. I was surprised at how filling it was--I guess it is all that cream and milk in it. This one will definitely go in the rotation. It is a really easy, fast, busy-weeknight type dinner. I just may have to try tortellini in my own tomato soup and see if it is as good.
