If you’re short on time, make this tomato tortellini soup! It only takes 15 minutes from start to finish and is full of flavor. Plus, 3 easy variations!
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.
