This Sun dried Tomato Soup with tortellini is creamy, delicious and is the perfect thing to warm up with on a cold day.
When you get stuck inside for two days because of snow and ice and you have to cancel your birthday plans guess what you do!? You make soup. More specifically, you make creamy, rich, real comfort food soup. This Sun dried Tomato Tortellini Soup fits the description perfectly.
Portland winter weather has been a little crazy this year. We are on our third snow storm of the season which is highly unusual. We usually get one every 3-4 years or so. And when the snow then turns to freezing rain that is another animal all together. When that happens, you stay home! Our cul de sac was pretty much an ice skating rink.
Fortunately, I made a last minute run to the grocery store. I could made this yummy soup to keep us warm and fed while we stayed inside our house for a few days.
How to Make Sun Dried Tomato Soup
The base of this soup is a combination of sun dried tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, onion, carrots and chicken stock.
Blend ingredients together and add in some cheese tortellini and cream. Then all that is left is to top it off with some freshly grated Parmesan cheese and basil.
Top with fresh basil if available. Because we were snowed in I used dried basil instead of fresh.
It’s the perfect way to warm up on a cold winter’s night and celebrate your birthday!
