    Something I whipped up from a combination of recipes -- really hearty and filling. Great for canned or fresh tomatoes, especially during the summer season!

      This recipe is so yummy. I usually make two batches at once because everyone loves it so much. The only changes I make is I double the amount of tortellinis and add some italian sausage.

      My family can't get enough of this recipe! We have it at least every other week. Even my picky 4 year old eater loves it. I've shared it with a few people and they all rave about it. I don't normally like tomatoes or tomato soup but this is fantastic! We use an entire bag of frozen tortellini though and make it extra pasta-y. We think it's even better the second (or third) day! I wish it wasn't so thick though the next day and I'm considering using just cream instead of heavy cream.

      Personally, I loved this soup but my husband said he wished it were creamier so I took both opinions into consideration when rating this. No question this was a great soup though!
