Tortellini Vegetable Soup

Jump to Recipe

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:)

  1. These look like the perfect fall meal! I love soup, but dread the cold weather, it was cold this weekend! Great recipes!

  2. perfect for the fall!! I love that it is cooling down finally. This is my favorite Utah weather, even though it only tends to last a week!

  3. 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.

  4. 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?

  5. 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:)

  6. 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…

  7. 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!

  8. 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.

  9. This is perfect maria for cooler weather in the fall. Very colourful and something I would like to make for my family 🙂 Lovely bruschetta too!

  10. 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!

  11. 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.

  12. 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!

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

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

  15. What a simple and delicious recipe! It has gotten a little colder here in LA too so great time to make some comforting soup. I can't wait to try this one!
