Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup

Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup-we love this simple and delicious soup! 

Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup Recipe on Love this easy and delicious soup!

Yesterday Josh asked me if I wanted to go out to dinner on Valentine’s Day. I think he knew the answer before he even asked. I occasionally like going out to dinner with my husband but NOT on Valentine’s Day. I would rather stay home in my pj’s. I know Josh would rather stay home too, so it was sweet of him to ask. It’s the thought that counts:)

Instead of going out for Valentine’s Day, we are going to enjoy dinner at home, as a family. Josh offered to make dinner…and I will let him do that:) He suggested Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup and Caprese Garlic Bread. He knows I am all about carbs these day so his menu sounded perfect! And I know Caleb will approve too. He loves our Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup.

Tomato soup has always been my favorite. You can’t go wrong with a classic.

We kicked the classic tomato soup up a notch by adding cheese tortellini! We love tortellini soup and the cheese tortellini goes perfectly with the creamy tomato soup!

Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup Recipe on So easy and SO good!

You will think this soup is loaded with heavy cream because it is so creamy and so good, but Greek yogurt is the secret ingredient. The Greek yogurt makes the soup super creamy without adding all of the fat and calories!

Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup Recipe on Our family LOVES this soup!

I like to add fresh basil and shredded Parmesan cheese to my bowl of warm soup! They are the perfect finishing touches to this delicious soup!

This Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup is super simple to make and a hit with our entire family. I am craving this soup now, I don’t know if I can wait until Valentine’s Day! Hurry up Friday!

Our Valentine’s Day won’t be fancy, but we will enjoy our special dinner at home as a family! And there will be dessert involved too. I am trying to decide if I want my favorite Chocolate Sour Cream Bundt Cake or Flourless Chocolate Cookies. Decisions, decisions:)

If you are having a Valentine’s dinner at home, make Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup. You will be glad you stayed home!

Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup

Yield: Serves 6-8

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Creamy tomato soup with cheese tortellini! You will think this soup is made with heavy cream, but the secret is Greek yogurt! We love this simple soup!


1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 bay leaves
Dash of crushed red pepper flakes
2 (28 oz) cans diced tomatoes
1 (32 oz) container vegetable broth
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
2 (9 oz) packages fresh or frozen cheese tortellini (we use Buitoni)
Grated Parmesan cheese and fresh basil, for garnish, optional


1. In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the bay leaves and crushed red pepper flakes.

2. Add the diced tomatoes and vegetable broth. Stir in fresh basil and season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Simmer on low for 15 minutes.

3. Remove the bay leaves from the pot. Use a hand immersion blender to blend the soup (or carefully transfer soup to a blender to blend and return to the pot). Stir in the Greek yogurt until well combined. Stir in the cheese tortellini and cook on medium-low until tortellini is cooked, about 7-8 minutes. Serve warm.

    Your soup is gorgeous, Maria! I love the color, the flavors, the wood board, sooo so pretty!

    Btw I got my leggings and some for my daughter. We Love them!! THANKS for the rec!

    I actually have a similar soup on the meal plan tonight, but I may try yours instead. I love the addition of yogurt to give it a little creaminess! :)

  3. annie @ chase that i love — February 12, 2014 @ 7:13 am

    Never thought of using greek yogurt as a soup thickener. What a smart idea!
    The temps just dropped dramatically here, looks like such a wonderful cozy soup to warm up with.

  4. Jannrn — February 12, 2014 @ 7:44 am

    I can’t wait to try this…but wouldn’t it be easier and SAFER if you don’t have an immersion blender, just to blend the tomatoes first?…..Personally I love chunky onions and garlic! I bet this would also be amazing with Herbs de Provence! I am not a huge fan of Basil…but I guess for a few minutes it wouldn’t be bad at all. I hope I can get home this weekend and try this! I am in the Southeast!

  5. Trishtr — February 12, 2014 @ 8:04 am

    Yummy….could go for a bowl of that right now. Looks delicious!

  6. Jan — February 12, 2014 @ 8:33 am

    Maria, I’m relatively new to Two Peas and Their Pod, and I love starting my day with your newest recipe and post! In fact, I’ve got most of my co-workers hooked now. :) Not only the recipes, which are fabulous….but the photos! You and Josh are awesome photographers. The photos bring the recipes to life! Congratulations on your upcoming big event, when baby makes 4.

    Nothing like a warm bowl of tomato soup! Tortellini too?! Win!

  8. Megan — February 12, 2014 @ 8:59 am

    Staying home with this soup definitely sounds way better than dealing with being out at a restaurant on Valentine’s Day! I like to use special occasions like New Year’s Eve and Valentine’s Day to make something special at home. I did duck for NYE, and I think I may do rib eye for Valentine’s Day.

  9. Erica — February 12, 2014 @ 9:05 am

    LOVE the idea of greek yogurt in there. My Josh doesn’t like tomato soup…I wish he did- its one of my favorites!

  10. Lori @ RecipeGirl — February 12, 2014 @ 9:20 am

    Looks great- I’m with you– let’s stay home on Valentine’s Day!

  11. Kevin @ Closet Cooking — February 12, 2014 @ 9:29 am

    I could so use a bowl of this right now! Perfect for these cold winter days!

  12. María [mesa para cuatro] — February 12, 2014 @ 9:35 am

    Wow, this soup looks really awesome. I’ll have to try out the recipe and see for myself 😉

    Thanks for sharing!

  13. Heather Christo — February 12, 2014 @ 9:57 am

    this is just what the Doctor ordered- I would LOVE a big bowl right now!

  14. Lauren — February 12, 2014 @ 10:22 am

    Would this soup freeze well? I’m in my third trimester and I’m on the look out for yummy meals to freeze!

    • Two Peas replied: — February 12th, 2014 @ 3:49 pm

      It should freeze just fine! The tortellini might fall apart a little after defrosting, but not much.

  15. We do the same thing! PJ’s are where it’s at! And this soup, love!

  16. Sandy @ ReluctantEntertainer — February 12, 2014 @ 10:31 am

    Looks so cozy and perfect for our rainy, gloomy day in Oregon. Thank you, Maria!

  17. Sommer @ASpicyPerspective — February 12, 2014 @ 10:56 am

    This is a perfect soup for a winter day meal! I can’t way to try this very soon!

  18. Paula – bell’alimento — February 12, 2014 @ 11:00 am

  19. Julie @ Table for Two — February 12, 2014 @ 11:10 am

    This is making me so hungry!! I love tortellini!

  20. Sherried — February 12, 2014 @ 11:11 am

    How would this freeze? Since I am single, I like to make soups that will freeze well for lunch/supper later.

      It should freeze just fine.

  21. Melanie @ Carmel Moments — February 12, 2014 @ 11:11 am

    Whoa! So yum. Pinning this to my tomato soup recipes board. They’re so many awesome ones to try. I love the tortellini that’s added!

    • Two Peas replied: — February 12th, 2014 @ 3:47 pm

      Thank you!

  22. Marie @ Little Kitchie — February 12, 2014 @ 11:17 am

    I love that this is made with Greek yogurt! Can’t wait to give this one a try!

  23. Jess @ What The Efff — February 12, 2014 @ 11:22 am

    This sounds incredible! I think I know what’s on our menu for Friday! I’m with you – take me out to dinner whenever you want, but never on Valentine’s Day!

  24. Kelli @ The Corner Kitchen — February 12, 2014 @ 11:24 am

    This soup is pure winter comfort perfection….I love it, Maria! The Greek yogurt addition is awesome!

  25. Katrina @ WVS — February 12, 2014 @ 11:33 am

    This looks fantastic Maria! I’m with you, I’d rather stay in on Valentine’s Day and escape the madness! :)

  28. Jessica @ A Kitchen Addiction — February 12, 2014 @ 12:07 pm

    Perfect comfort food for these frigid evenings! Love the Greek yogurt addition!

  29. Susan — February 12, 2014 @ 2:12 pm

    This sounds delicious! and since it is virtuous calorie-wise you could really splurge on a yummy dessert!!!! I think we might just do this for our Happy Hearts Day too!

  30. katie — February 12, 2014 @ 2:40 pm

    mmm this soup sounds divine. We normally stay in for Valentine’s Day as well but since this is our last kid free Valentine’s day I insisted we go out!

  31. Jenn — February 12, 2014 @ 3:32 pm

    Is Greek yogurt a good/ok substitute when soups call for heaving whipping cream? This looks amazing!

    • Two Peas replied: — February 12th, 2014 @ 3:45 pm

      I’ve used it a few times in soup recipes and it’s worked great for me! It might not work in every soup though.

  32. Laura (Tutti Dolci) — February 12, 2014 @ 3:42 pm

    I love tortellini soup, this looks so tasty!

  33. Gaby — February 12, 2014 @ 5:49 pm

    This is the perfect stay at home dinner! Love the tortellini!

  34. Holly Waterfall — February 12, 2014 @ 6:01 pm

    Huh! How come I never thought to put Greek Yogurt in soup instead of heavy cream?? Genius, you are!

  35. Martha in KS — February 12, 2014 @ 6:17 pm

    I’m making this as soon as I buy some Greek yogurt.

  36. ashley M. | Our Full Table — February 12, 2014 @ 10:25 pm

    I never thought of adding greek yogurt what a great idea! I may have to make this too! Yummy!

  37. Mercedes — February 13, 2014 @ 11:25 am

    How delicious and easy! I would rather stay home for Valentine’s dinner too and this looks like the perfect thing to make!

  38. Lisa P in MD — February 13, 2014 @ 1:24 pm

    Wow! Just made this for our lunch today (snow day!) and what a hit!

  39. Georgia @ The Comfort of Cooking — February 13, 2014 @ 6:31 pm

    I’ve always cooked tortellini soups in broth and wondered how I could make them better. This is it! Saving to try soon. I know it will be a big hit!

  40. Lana @ Never Enough Thyme — February 13, 2014 @ 7:09 pm

    What a beautiful, delicious soup. It would be perfect for this snowy weather we’re having.
