Tortellini Soup

Tortellini Soup- Printable Version

Ingredients:

1/2 onion (diced)
1 carrot (diced)
1 tbsp. olive oil
1/4 cup fresh basil (chopped)
5 cups chicken stock
1/2 cup skim milk
3/4 cup half and half
1 jar marinara sauce
1 can diced tomatoes
salt and pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder
16 ounces tortellini
parmesan cheese

Directions:

  1. Chop your onion and carrot. Saute in olive oil over medium heat (in a dutch oven or large pan).
  2. Add basil, chicken stock, milk, half and half, marinara sauce, and diced tomatoes. Stir well.
  3. Add salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Simmer for about 20 minutes.
  4. Add tortellini to the mixture and simmer for another 15 minutes.
  5. Serve with warm bread and top with parmesan cheese.

Great toppings: freshly grated parmesan cheese

Notes:

The fresh basil is a MUST for this recipe! The flavor is incredible!

The milk and half and half add a creamy and rich element to this soup. You can always cut the milk in half or leave it out all-together for a stronger tomato taste.

You could even make this a heartier soup by adding meat (I would go with ground beef) and more veggies if you’d like!
