Tortellini Tomato Bisque

"Another scrap of paper found in my "when I get 'round to it" box. Torn from the June 2006 issue of BHG magazine. When searching Zaar, I found lots of tortellini & tomato soup recipes but none that included cream cheese."

  1. Very tasty and simple to make! It is especially nice on a cold day when you are in a hurry for some comfort food.
  2. Very nice tortellini soup! I used cheese & spinach tortellini and really enjoyed it. It did need some serious pepper for our tastes, as well as some chilli flakes - lovely weeknight dinner with garlic bread, thanks for posting!
  3. Very rich and filling. I used an 8.5 oz. bag of Barilla brand ricotta and spinach tortelloni.
  4. Made this as directed using a homemade mushroom tortollini. Although the tortollini fell apart (my fault) this was delicious. I used laughing cow garlic and herb cheese (4 wedges). This is a thick, creamy and filling soup. No need for grilled cheese sandwiches with this soup!


<p>Hello from suburban Fort Worth, Texas! <br /> <br /><br /> <br />______________________________________________ <br /> <br /> <br />*My rating system defined* <br /> <br />Very few recipes really knock my socks off - I love to cook but am not a gourmet. <br />This said: <br /> <br />***** - met all my expectations in taste &amp; appearance; directions were clear &amp; easy to follow. <br /> <br />**** - fell slightly short of my expectations in taste or appearance or directions were faulty or not completely clear. <br /> <br />*** - mediocre taste and/or appearance; most likely a recipe that I would not use again without much modification. <br /> <br />** - taste and/or appearance was not to my liking; a recipe that I would not attempt to modify or use again. <br /> <br />* - taste was absolutely not to my liking (I can't imagine ever using this rating as I can generally tell by the ingredients if I will enjoy the finished product or not) <br /> <br /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br />&nbsp;<br />&nbsp;<br /><img src= alt= /> <br />&nbsp;<br /><br />&nbsp;</p>
