Roasted Tomato Tortellini Soup

Roasted Tomato Tortellini Soup is the comfort soup you crave. A rich roasted tomato broth filled with tender three cheese tortellini, sauteed veggies, finished with spinach, parmesan and a pinch of red pepper flake. A big bowl of this delicious soup with a glass of wine and all your troubles will fade away.

The tomato broth may seem a little labor intensive, but I promise it’s quicker than you think and it goes way further than just some chicken stock and tomato paste. The flavor is rich and delicious. I love the way roasted tomatoes produce their own sugars when cooking and caramelize themselves. So yummy. Add in carrots, onions, garlic and herbs to boil into a beautiful tomato broth.

This is a quick soup dish that you could totally go low and slow with all day in your crock-pot. I used an assortment of tomatoes that I had but plum tomatoes and cherry tomatoes are prime for this broth. This is a cream-less and meat-less dish so it totally passes for vegetarian. If you’d like to add some shrimp or Italian sausage I definitely recommend it.

Fresh tortellini is typically found in the deli refrigerated section of your grocery store. Look for brands like Buitoni Tortellini or Giovanni Rana Tortellini. The best part about using fresh tortellini is no need to pre-cook them, just throw them in your soup towards the end and let the soup do the work.

Wine Pairing Recommendation: This is totally the job for a Chianti, but if I was being completely honest with what I drinking with this I would go with a Cote Du Rhone. Italian wine doesn’t always have to go with Italian inspired food.
