I do not love tomato soup. I’ve never really even liked it. But when it comes to grilled cheese, having tomato soup kind of seemed like a classic idea. Plus, Jacob loves tomato soup and grilled cheese. So, with this in mind, I set out to find a tomato soup recipe that wasn’t just a can of condensed soup and water. I succeeded. My only advice for this recipe is not to substitute ravioli like we did. The raviolis are just a little to big for a soup. Tortellinis would be nice and bit sized.
You won’t even need that many ingredients!
- 2 (10 oz) cans of condensed tomato soup
- 4 cups of heavy cream
- 2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 bag of frozen tortellini
- salt & pepper to taste
Mix your cans of tomato soup, heavy cream, and minced garlic together in a big pot. Stir it while it heats up so that you get it nice and smooth. Once you bring it to a boil, turn down the temperature and add the tortellini. Cook the tortellini according to package directions. While the tortellini was cooking I made our grilled cheese sandwiches, but since there is pasta in this soup, you really could eat it without the sandwich. I got full before I finished my whole bowl!
So, I found a tomato soup that I actually like. I’m definitely going to make this again. It was great for a dreary and chilly fall day.
