Tomato Basil Tortellini Soup

Tomato Basil Tortellini Soup

  •     2 tablespoons olive oil
  •     1 medium onion, chopped
  •     3 medium carrots, chopped
  •     5 garlic cloves, minced
  •     3 cans (28 ounces each) crushed tomatoes, undrained
  •     1 carton (32 ounces) vegetable broth
  •     1 tablespoon sugar
  •     1 teaspoon dried basil
  •     1 bay leaf
  •     3 packages (9 ounces each) refrigerated cheese tortellini
  •     3/4 cup half-and-half cream
  •     Shredded Parmesan cheese and minced fresh basil

  1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and carrot; cook and stir until crisp-tender, 5-6 minutes. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Transfer to a 6- or 7-qt. slow cooker. Add the tomatoes, broth, sugar, basil and bay leaf. Cook, covered, on low until vegetables are tender, 6-7 hours.
  2. Stir in tortellini. Cook, covered, on high 15 minutes. Reduce heat to low; stir in cream until heated through. Discard bay leaf. Serve with Parmesan cheese and basil.
  3. Freeze option: Before stirring in sour cream, cool soup and freeze in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a saucepan, stirring occasionally, adding sour cream as directed.

Test Kitchen tip
If you're cooking for a smaller group, make just one-third of the recipe in a small slow cooker and decrease the cooking time slightly.
