A very good soup, perfectly seasoned using dried basil . I halved the recipe using only fired roasted tomatoes and no tomato paste, personal preference. I used gnocchi in place of tortellini. I blended until smooth with a stick blender. A great soup with a salad. Thanks for posting.
This was, simply put, divine. I was a little bit hesitant to try this because my husband and I are not fond of tomatoes, but I thought there might be enough other flavors in the dish to balance it out. I am SO glad I took the plunge! We halved the recipe (just the two of us) with no difficulty. We added plenty of extra Parmesan for garnish, but aside from that, this needed no tweaking at all. We served it with one of those grocery baguettes that you can buy pre-made but bake at home - it could not have been any better on a cold, rainy night! Thanks so much - I can't wait to have company over because I know they'll love it just as much as we did!
Excellent soup! Followed recipe to a "T". Even dh commented on how delicious and filling this soup was.
