I’m such a soup person that I spend hours thinking about soup. Okay, maybe not hours each day, but I do spend a lot of time planning what soup I am going to make or eat next.

My 3 ingredient black bean soup has been so popular that I decided I needed to test out another 3 ingredient soup recipe.

My new recipe, this recipe, is just as easy… and may even taste better.

Tomato Tortellini Soup

You need only three ingredients, a soup pot, and an immersion blender to make this 3-ingredient tomato tortellini soup recipe.

My immersion blender is used daily over here and I would be LOST without it. I highly suggest you purchase one asap.

Anyway, back to the soup. I highly suggest chicken stock over chicken broth but you can substitute broth if that is what you have on hand.

The fire-roasted tomatoes, on the other hand, are a big part of the flavor of this soup. They add an extra layer of flavor that plain diced tomatoes just don’t carry.

I usually just season to taste with some salt and crushed black pepper but we have also garnished with a little crushed red pepper, parmesan, and oregano.

Sound like something used for pizza? Well, we ordered pizza and had leftover toppings and I found them a home.

What kind of tortellini should I use?

For the tortellini, use any flavor – we have made it with cheese tortellini, prosciutto tortellini and mushroom tortellini. All ways were fabulous.

Tomato tortellini soup variations

As with many recipes with few ingredients, you are going to start imagining what you can add to it. They kind of became a canvass for your tummy. Brings a whole new meaning to palette when it pertains to food, right?

I’ve taken the guesswork out of it for you – here are 3 easy variations for my 3-ingredient tomato tortellini soup recipe:

  • Cream of Tomato Tortellini Soup – Add ½ cup heavy cream or milk after cooking the tortellini. Stir well.
  • Fiesta Tomato Tortellini Soup – Add ¼ cup cilantro with the chicken stock and tomatoes. Squeeze the juice of one lime into the soup.
  • Tomato Basil Tortellini Soup – Add ¼ cup basil with the chicken stock and tomatoes.

You can use a tradition blender instead - just puree in small quantities!

This looks delish! I know you said the fire roasted tomatoes really make the taste, but would they work for a younger child? I always just buy plain ones, so not sure how the heat is in fire roasted for a more delicate palate. Any suggestions?

Hi Amanda! The fire roasted tomatoes add a smokiness to the soup - if you wanted to use plain tomatoes, you definitely could. You may find the flavor a little bland - if you do, I would add a little oregano or pepper.
