Today is National Tortellini Day, hooray! I love a day to celebrate pasta, and such a versatile one at that. Since I didn’t find out about this until I was at work for a couple of hours, I was thankful for the pinner who said of today’s recipe “apparently the best soup in the WORLD!” Challenge accepted. Let’s get cooking.

This was the original pin on my board. It originated from Krysten’s blog, Mrs. Schwartz’s Kitchen.

I did have to stop at the store after work to pick up a few ingredients, but nothing was out of the ordinary.

Tomato Tortellini Soup Ingredients

I sauteed the minced garlic in olive oil until it was sweating and just starting to brown,

then I added the rest of the ingredients except the tortellini and Parmesan cheese.

Combine everything except the cheese and tortellini

Let it come to a simmer then add the tortellini.

WARNING: your house is going to start smelling really amazing right about now. Do not give in to the urge to dive face first into the soup.

Add the tortelliniCook for 8 minutes until the pasta is done, but not mushy. Stir frequently so the tortellini will cook evenly.

The Tomato Tortellini Soup rated as follows:

Overall Rating: 5 Pins

5 Pins Overall - LARGE

Accuracy: The recipe had a rich flavor reminiscent of something you would find in a nice Italian restaurant. My husband commented that the chopped sun-dried tomatoes gave an almost meaty texture, adding flavor but not acidity. Note: The recipe mentioned pepper, but none was listed in the ingredients, thus the 4 pins.

Rated 4 Pins - SMALL

Difficulty: The hardest part of the recipe was chopping the oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes. Messy, but easy.

Rated 5 Pins - SMALL

Time: This is a good weeknight recipe. If you have everything on hand, you can have this on the table in 30 minutes or so. This includes the mincing, chopping and grating.

Rated 5 Pins - SMALL

Cost: I didn’t have all of the ingredients, but the grocery had everything needed (and much was on sale!). The most expensive ingredients were the oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes ($4) and the tortellini ($3.50).

Rated 5 Pins - SMALL

Practicality: While we didn’t think it was “the best soup in the WORLD”, we did like it very much. It is good comfort food on a cold rainy day.
