"A rich creamy tomato soup with some tortellini to fill your tummy. Serve with some hot garlic bread! I just combined a few of my favorites from other recipes and added some parmesan it was a hit. Hope you enjoy it too!"

"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 delicious! Followed as written. Very yummy, got 7 serves. Thanks for sharing!"
"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!"
"Very hearty and filling and packed with flavor . Also, it couldn't be easier! I will definitely make this often!"
"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."
"I'll give it a 5 like everyone else. Wish I had followed the instructions to a "t", because really it was about a 4 as I made substitutions with what I had. I used Tomatoe Bisque soup instead of regular, and I only had 1 can of fire-roasted tomatoes so I used a regular can for the 2nd. So I wish it had just a tiny tad more "kick" to it than it did--but otherwise the flavor was outstanding. Served with a hearty toasted loaf of bread, and it was a lovely Sunday evening dinner."
"Yum yum yum! What a great recipe this is....we loved it and so darn easy...
I did use my hand blender in it to make it smooth...It tasted like I slaved all day over the pot!
If you like good tomato bisque soup, give this reicipe a try... I used fat free half and half, fat free milk and the healthy request tomato soups...you sure could not tell that it was on the light side."
"This was outstanding. We all went crazy for it! I used skim milk and fat free half and half and it was GREAT.....we didn't miss the fat at all. I was concerned it would be sweet because of the tomato soup, but it wasn't sweet at all. We will definitely make this a regular menu item."
"Amazing! Served it for guests and they loved. The little 7 year even asked for seconds! Can't wait till I have fresh basil this summer to make this with!"
"This soup offers great results for such little effort! I love the creaminess in the texture. I did not have the "fire roasted" tomatoes so used stewed tomatoes and added 1/2 tsp of house seasoning too. I used frozen tortellini which I precooked as the directions didn't state whether to use fresh or frozen. Really excellent and I will make this again! Thx Diane."
"Excellent! Made this for Chistmas soup lunch along with a couple other soups and pulled pork sandwiches. This was easy and is a new family favorite. I used tomato bisque soup from Campbell's rather than regular, think it added to the creaminess. I also used whipping cream rather than half and half and upped to about a cup. Top with shredded parmesan and it tastes just like Grisantis!"
"EXCELLENT! Super easy and tastes like it's straight from the restaurant kitchen!"
"This is great! Wife and even the kids loved it! I couldn't find fire roasted tomato's so I used a can of diced (regular) and a can of spicy (Brushetta type) and it had a really nice kick to it. Restraunt quality soup for sure!"
"omg.....this is so easy & super good...took to work everyone loved it.....didnt change a thing...thanks 4 a great easy recipe:)"
"Absolutely delish! Five stars for the simplicity and the flavor. The only tweaking was adding a dash of cayenne pepper to the bowl after it was served."
