Creamy Tomato, Basil, & Garlic Cheese Tortellini Soup

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by CookyCookie

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

Wonderful tasting, quick and simple recipe. I followed the recipe pretty much except for adding some salt and pepper and an extra package of tortellini (I used herbed chicken tortellini from Aldi). I then added more broth, tomato juice and cream until it was a consistency I was satisfied with. Everyone in my family of six thought it was great- definitely a keeper!
