Creamy Sun Dried Tomato Tortellini Soup

This Creamy Sun Dried Tomato Tortellini Soup is pure comfort food in a creamy and hearty soup! This uses a pre-made cream starter which is perfect for making easy creamy soups and is filled with sun dried tomatoes, tortellini, and spinach!


I don’t know about where you live, but we have had a major change in weather here in Minnesota.  Helloooo winter!  With the chilly evenings, I’m naturally craving comfort food – soups, stews, casseroles, you name it.

Today I’m sharing with you a soup that is pure comfort food and not only that but is incredibly quick and easy to make. As in… get-home-from-work-starving quick and easy. We’re talking 30 minutes from hangry to sitting down for dinner. Crisis averted.

First, you start by sautéing up an onion. Then you throw in some sundried tomato pesto. Have you ever had this stuff? Oh my it’s delicious…

If you can’t find it in your grocery store, you could also use jarred sundried tomatoes that are packed in oil. Just be sure to run them through the food processor first to get them pureed.

After you add the sundried tomato pesto then comes the fun part – the Swanson Cream StarterTM, which is a lightly seasoned cream based broth to help move along the cooking process. So no roux making. No adding cornstarch for it to thicken. You simply add the Cream Starter, and there you go – creamy sundried tomato tortellini soup.

Once I added the Cream Starter, I added a touch of milk to thin it out a bit, along with cooked tortellini and spinach. Then that’s it… time to sit down and eat sundried tomato tortellini soup!

While simple, the soup gets a TON of flavor from the sundried tomatoes. I loved the cheesy tortellini throughout the creamy soup, and the spinach made me feel better about eating it with a side of bread instead of a salad. Moderation, you know?

  1. In my mind tortellini soup is just the kind of dish that midwesterners invented to get them through these ridiculous winter months. Michigan got dumped on yesterday too, and this looks like the perfect antidote 🙂

  2. I saw you guys had quite the winter system move through! We had just a couple inches, but more is on the way tomorrow. Gah! I love tomato soup, and this version looks like a winner. And hangry to sitting at the table in 30 is always a good thing!

  3. I like how you’ve used the tomato pesto and baby spinach in this beautiful soup. NEED that cream starter…what a great idea!
