Sometimes I think it’s still soup season, and then the weather decides it was to be on the warmer side again when I make a pot of soup. It’s so hard to predict how it’s going to be because mother nature is constantly changing. Ugh!
Oh well. My hubby is still going to enjoy this one pot creamy tomato tortellini soup! Even though I would like to face plant into a bowl of this soup, I am going to have to pass because I am dieting. My willpower is starting to get stronger each and every day. I would LOVE a big bowl of this soup with a buttered and toasted slice of bread! I did taste it now and then when I was making it, so I know it’s delicious.
Love tomato soup? Dislike condensed cans of soup? Me too! Skip the canned condensed tomato soup, please for me! You can create this flavorful tomato soup in no time.
If you love one-pot soups, you are going to LOVE one-pot tomato and basil tortellini soup or my one-pot creamy sausage and potato soup!
I immediately know what ingredients I wanted to use to resemble a condensed tomato soup: springs of fresh rosemary, fresh basil, dried oregano, and dried thyme. Yep. Those are your typical Italian soup and sauce basic. Not to worry if you do not have fresh rosemary or basil, you can find the measurements for dried.
Every soup or pasta dish I make I love to use my dutch oven. If you do not own one, it is my most used kitchen pot. It keeps things an even cooking temperature since it is made out of cast iron and perfect for throwing into the oven. Hands down…the BEST!!
If you do not make your chicken stock from scratch, I highly recommend this brand of chicken stock. I always like to get the unsalted kind because I like to add salt to my taste.
