This quick and easy one pot creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup Recipe is loaded with flavor and is made with simple every day ingredients - fresh herbs and spices, onion, garlic, tomatoes, cream, and cheese tortellini. It's a classic tomato soup recipe, taken to the next level with the addition of a fresh cheese stuffed pasta. 


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt, more to taste
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • (2) 28-ounce cans crushed tomatoes
  • 3 cups chicken stock or vegetable stock
  • 20 ounces cheese tortellini
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • ¼ chopped cup fresh basil


  1. To a large dutch oven over medium heat, add the olive oil and onion. Cook until the onions are translucent, about 5 minutes.  Add in the garlic and cook for an additional 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Stir in the Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, crushed tomatoes, and chicken stock.
  3. Bring the soup to a boil, and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Allow it to simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. 
  4. Stir in the tortellini, cream, and parmesan cheese, allow it to cook for 6 to 7 minutes until the tortellini is cooked through. 
  5. Garnish with basil and serve. 


  • Storage: Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
  • Reheating: I like to reheat this soup on the stovetop with a little extra chicken stock added to thin it out. It thickens up in once put in the refrigerator. 
  • Top it with croutons: This tomato tortellini soup is excellent with a nice crunchy element. I like to top this tomato soup with some of my Garlic Parmesan Croutons.
  • Make it dairy free: To make this a dairy free tomato soup, omit the heavy cream and buy a dairy free tortellini.
