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!

This soup was a hit! I snuck in some spinach and my son didn't even notice because he was too busy devouring his bowl. Hubby went back for seconds. I doubled the recipe so we will happily be eating leftovers tonight!

Everything is perfect as listed. Will definitely make again and again and the serving amounts are correct. 3 adults eating this just as dinner went through most of it (~75%) because there wasn't bread or anything on the side. But because I didn't pur

This is great soup and very easy to make. We loved it and I can imagine making it with other small noodles or none at all. Thanks for posting!

Really good! I didn't have any Italian tomato paste so I added a pinch of italain seasoning. My DH love it! It needed some ummmph for me but would definitely make it again. Thanks!

WOW What a wonderful recipe. I made half a recipe but used homemade frozen ravioli. We loved this and will have it many times again. I did add more fresh basil that stated but was great. I used a hand blender before adding the ravioli. Served with french bread, butter and parmesan, broiled for 30-45 sec.
