One-Pot Tomato Tortellini Soup
If you’re looking for an easy soup recipe to make, this is the perfect meal for you! It’s requires minimal ingredients and comes together in just 30 minutes. Some other easy favorites are chicken noodle soup, taco soup, pasta e fagioli and corn chowder.
With colder weather on the way, all I’ve wanted to eat for dinner lately is soup! Do you get that way? There’s just something about a warm bowl of soup with homemade cornbread or fresh rolls.
This tomato tortellini soup is the perfect meal on a cold fall or winter day. It’s smooth, creamy and also very filling. You could lighten it up with low fat milk…but I have to say that the half and half just makes it absolutely delicious!
The best part about this recipe is it only takes about 30 minutes to make. It doesn’t get better than that! This dish is perfect for those busy week nights where the last thing you want to worry about is dinner. Plus my whole family loved it!
What’s In It?
What makes this recipe so simple is how few ingredients it calls for. You can always add in extras like baby spinach, parmesan and chopped fresh basil.
- Tomato soup (2 cans)
- Half and half
- Italian seasoning
- Garlic powder
- Cheese tortellini
- S&P to taste
How to Make Tomato Tortellini Soup
- Simmer and season. Warm the tomato soup, water and half and half over medium-heat in a large pot or skillet. Next add in all of the seasonings and simmer on low heat for 10 minutes.
- Add tortellini and cook until tender. Then add in tortellini and simmer another 10 minutes, or until cooked and tender. If adding spinach, stir in and allow to cook for one minute.
- Add toppings and serve! Ladle into bowls and add parmesan cheese and basil if desired. Enjoy while warm!
- Fresh tortellini cooks faster, but frozen will work too. You may need to cook the frozen tortellini a little longer to get it tender.
- I use a 9 ounce package of spinach cheese tortellini. If you prefer more tortellini to soup, add a 16 ounce package. If you prefer more soup, then add in 1/2 cup more water.
- Can sub milk for half and half to lighten it up a bit.
- For an even creamier consistency, add in another 1/2 cup half and half or 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese.
- If adding spinach, mix it in right before serving. It only needs a minute or so to wilt.

This recipe is GREAT for toddlers!! I made it as written and my picky 26 month old grandson gobbled it up. His grandpa and I enjoyed it as well. This recipe will definitely be made frequently. It’s easy to prepare, economical, and simple to clean up. Thank you for sharing.
This makes us so happy to hear, Sandra! Glad it was a success with your family :)
This is great. I usually use Progresso’s Creamy Basil Tomato soup. I warm that while the tortellini is cooking and then add it all together. It’s ready in 10 minutes tops. I don’t add cream or anything to it. The spinach is a nice touch though. I’ll add that next time.
Sounds delicious! Happy to hear you enjoyed the recipe, Cara :)
What is half & half?
Hi Wendy! Half-and-half is half whole milk and half cream. You can find it in the dairy section of the grocery store.
Hi Jamielyn, not if you live in New Zealand. Would it be a cup of milk and a cup of cream mixed together?
Your photos show tomato’s? Did you add diced tomatoes as well?
Hi Valeri! Yes, I occasionally add in diced tomatoes!
