Creamy Homemade Tortellini Soup

August 23, 2021

I am ushering in Fall with this delicious homemade creamy Tortellini soup recipe.

Having a pot of simmering soup on the cooktop appeals to my homemaking heart!

Tortellini soup is a timeless favorite in our home, especially when there is a whisper of Fall in the air.

This recipe is quite hearty and can be customized by adding your favorite protein and favorite tortellini.


I began making this soup many years ago when my family was all at home, it seemed like a good compromise between a pasta dinner and soup!

Plus I was able to sneak some vegetables in without anyone under the age of 10 noticing.


This recipe uses many of the vegetables still growing in my garden and most likely yours too.

Basic vegetables such as red and yellow peppers, jalapeno's, basil, tomatoes and onions provide a wonderful stock base for this rich, colorful and tasty Tortellini Soup.

About 20 years ago I fell madly in love with the jalapeno pepper, and I always grow them in my vegetable garden.

The gorgeous jalapeno pepper adds just the right amount of zing to most any main dish.


I am also a big fan of  Pacific Organic Vegetable Broth. It is a rich broth with robust flavor.

My favorite tortellini and ravioli is Giovanni Rana.

Good food without adding unnecessary fillers and preservatives.
