Tortellini Vegetable Soup

Tortellini Vegetable Soup

The weather is finally cooler here in Utah. We had a good rainstorm over the weekend that brought cooler temperatures and it looks like they are here to stay. I am not a fan of the cold, but I don’t mind the fall’s chilly, brisk air. I love wearing jeans, sweatshirts/sweaters, and wrapping up in blankets.

I also like making foods that warm the soul and this soup certainly does that. I just made this recipe up on the spot. I used the veggies we had at home, added in some broth, canned tomatoes, fresh rosemary, and cheese tortellini. It turned out really great. It is Josh’s new favorite! He ate it all and is begging for more:)

Tortellini Vegetable Soup

Yield: Seres 6

Vegetable soup with cheese tortellini-one of our favorite soups!


2 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
Red pepper flakes, just a dash
1 medium zucchini, chopped
1 medium yellow squash, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
3-4 fresh tomatoes, chopped
1 14.5 ounce can of diced tomatoes (low sodium)
2 cans (14 oz.) vegetable broth (fat free, low sodium)
2 cups water
3 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary
12 ounces cheese filled tortellini, fresh or frozen (I like the tri colored kind)
2-3 cups chopped fresh spinach
Salt and Pepper to taste


1. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium/high heat. Add onion and garlic. Cook until tender. Stir in red pepper flakes. Add in zucchini, squash, red pepper and cook until soft. Add in chopped fresh tomatoes. Cook briefly.
2. Stir in canned tomatoes, broth, and water.
3. Add in rosemary. Let simmer for 10-15 minutes.
4. Stir in tortellini and spinach. Cook until the tortellini is soft and cooked all the way through.
5. Season with salt and pepper. Enjoy!

    Yum! Now I have to make soup tonight.

  13. Allie — October 7, 2008 @ 7:56 am

    Send some cooler weather my way! Looks like another wonderful meal. Maybe I can crank down the ac and make some soup for now while waiting on the cooler weather outside.

  14. Cathy — October 7, 2008 @ 8:06 am

    So funny — we are going on a family trip to the lake this weekend, and I just bought everything I need to make your black bean soup to bring up with us. And now I see this recipe, and I am thinking that I should make this instead!! Oh well, let’s see if I have time to make both before we leave — you can never have too much soup, right?

  15. Maria — October 7, 2008 @ 8:17 am

    This soup is the perfect fall meal! Thanks for the nice comments everyone!

    Cathy-the black bean soup is a favorite too! I think whatever one you choose will be a hit..or make them both if you have time:)

    Oh good! I was just going to ask everyone if they knew some good soup recipes. Ben’s decided he wants to cook huge batches on the weekend and eat them during the week…

  17. Kathy Seed — October 7, 2008 @ 8:43 am

    Maria, this soup looks so good! Can’t wait to try it. Thanks again for the great ideas!

  18. Flourchild — October 7, 2008 @ 9:11 am

    Yum…a wonderful fall meal..I think we get the same weather as you do here in Idaho. I am so loving putting on my jeans and sweaters! I love the soup..thanks for the recipe!

  19. Sharon — October 7, 2008 @ 9:17 am

    Looks like a good, comforting soup. I love making bruschetta as a starter though I usually get so full because I can’t stop. Eating it with soup is the perfect solution.

  20. SweetBites — October 7, 2008 @ 9:30 am

    maria, the soup looks utterly hearty & delicious. luv ur beautiful soup bowl too.

  21. Rosie — October 7, 2008 @ 9:57 am

  26. Satisfying my Sweet Tooth — October 7, 2008 @ 12:05 pm

    The only thing I like about winter in Utah is eating good soup. Can’t wait to try this one. Your pumpkin rolls look amazing too. I’m going to try that one as well!

  27. Vera — October 7, 2008 @ 1:46 pm

    What can be better during rainy day than a bowl of hot soup like this! It looks delicious!

  28. nicole — October 7, 2008 @ 3:14 pm

    I love the time when it comes to make soups and stews. It looks great!

  29. Prudy — October 7, 2008 @ 4:02 pm

    I love a nice veggie soup on a fall day. I just made one really similar this last week with butterfly pasta. I wish I would have had some tortellini.

  30. ~Priscilla~ — October 7, 2008 @ 4:03 pm

    what a perfect meal for fall – i think soups spell out FALL and WINTER! and that bruchetta looks so yummy!

  31. Leslie — October 7, 2008 @ 5:46 pm

    What a nice hearty heart warming soup!!

  32. Cathy — October 7, 2008 @ 8:43 pm

    I just had to jump back to let you know that I made the black bean soup this afternoon — OMG, it is AMAZING!!!! Far and away the best black bean soup I’ve had. It is going to be a huge hit at the lake this weekend! If this tortellini soup is even half as good as your black bean soup, I just can’t wait to make it!

  33. Katerina — October 7, 2008 @ 9:23 pm

    I love impromptu soups! I bet the rosemary just makes it.

  34. hot garlic — October 7, 2008 @ 11:47 pm

    Even though it is not fall here, I would gladly eat this!

  35. Katherine Aucoin — October 8, 2008 @ 5:12 am

    A good vegetable soup on a cool fall day is so comforting.

  36. Dawn — October 8, 2008 @ 2:13 pm

    I love how thick this is. Really hearty.

  37. Grace — October 8, 2008 @ 3:00 pm

    this sounds healthy and soothing and marvelous, and that’s all there is to it. :)

  38. Melanie Anne — October 9, 2008 @ 8:15 am

    This looks really good!! I have all these ingredients right now. I think I will make it for dinner tonight! Thanks!

  39. Andrea — October 9, 2008 @ 8:30 pm

    Yea!! Now I know what else to do with the supersize pack of tortellini I bought at Costco. Thanks for the recipe. : )
