Creamy Tortellini Soup without the Cream

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 to this creamy tortellini soup. The Greek yogurt makes the soup super creamy without adding all of the fat and calories!

Make sure your Greek yogurt is at room temperature before adding it to the soup so it will melt right in. If you don’t have Greek yogurt, you can use sour cream, but we love using Greek yogurt in this soup.

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

  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt, at room temperature
  • 18 oz fresh or frozen cheese tortellini

    I just made the soup for dinner and it was delicious and perfect for a cozy fall night! I am going to freeze half of it since it’s a lot of soup for just two of us. Thank you for posting this recipe! 

  2. 4 stars
    Made this soup and it very good. Although the Greek yogurt has less calories, I think I would have preferred heavy cream. Go big or go home right?! Otherwise, it was perfect on a cold afternoon! Thanks for the recipe!

    This soup is so good . I made it several times ,didn’t have fresh basil so I used 1/8 cup dried. The second time I only put one package of tortellini as I found that with two it absorbed too much of the liduid. 
    Definetly a keeper !!!

  4. Would I be able to use sour cream instead? I want to make this tonight, but do not have Greek yogurt in the house.

      Family loved it. I didn’t have fresh onions or garlic, so I used onion powder and garlic powder instead. I blended the yogurt in with the blender because it didn’t stir in well. Those were the only changes I made. The kids said we should have it everyday! And they think they don’t like tomatoes!!

  5. First time I made this is was so delicious, this time it seems very acidic for some reason. Any ideas how to cut down the acidic taste?

    1. Chicken broth is a must for all my tomato soups and for most of other soup recipes I highly recommend it. I’m making this soup right now and added a cup of shredded cooked chicken.

    Made this today. Had to use chicken broth as going to the grocery store for one item not an option in a pandemic. It is delicious. A keeper. Only side note is the amount of tortellini I used. Canada package is 700 grams. Too much, more of a side dish then a soup. Still delicious

    This recipe is amazing! I’ve made it so many times that I don’t need to follow the instructions or anything anymore because it’s that easy (: The first time I made it was in college and roommate and I were hooked! It’s one of those recipes that also tastes good slightly cold or reheated.

    I do like to add more greek yogurt and red pepper than the recipe calls for but those changes all come down to personal preference. I can’t recommend this enough.

  8. 5 stars
    I was afraid Greek yogurt would give it a too strong sour taste, but it was perfect in this soup. Everything about this recipe is perfect! How wonderful to have during the first cool crisp rainy/ snowy days of fall in the mountains.

  9. 5 stars
    This soup was incredible! I did use my homemade chicken stock that really “souped” up the flavor! Made little grainy grilled tomato and cheese sandwiches for dipping! Fantastic!

    This was really great! I didn’t have great yogurt so added some ricotta and added some ground turkey to up the protein. Definitely will make again!
