Pasta is a staple dinner in our home. It’s quick and easy and guaranteed to be a hit with everyone in the family. I’m always looking for different ways to serve it and since I am huge soup lover, I decided to incorporate it in a creamy tomato based soup. This recipe is incredibly easy to put together, and the best part is that’s it’s all made in the same pot! I served it with a side of garlic bread and it was a huge hit. The fresh basil and heavy cream make for a beautifully rich and flavorful broth that will have you going back for seconds.

For this recipe you will need to use fresh tortellini. I like to use cheese filled tortellini, but the meat filled ones would be equally as delicious.

A cup of heavy cream really takes this soup to the next level.

Adding fresh basil at the end adds a lovely subtle flavor and beautiful colors to the soup.

Serve it with a side of bread for dipping in the broth and you have an easy beautiful dinner ready in under 30 minutes!

This soup has all of the flavors of a classic spaghetti dish.

In my opinion this soup tastes even better the following day. I always look forward to eating it for lunch.
