A creamy and rich tomato bisque with kale and tortellini, made in only 15 minutes! Pure comfort food in no time!
For many years, if tomato soup was on a restaurant menu, it was a good bet that I would be ordering it. More times than not, I left disappointed with the watered down, under seasoned, life less bowl that is supposed to resemble tomato soup.
To solve the little delima, I have resorted to making my own for the past few years. I have been through my fair share of tomato soups, ranging from using fresh tomatoes to a roasted tomato bisque. While the roasted tomatoes are a good competition, there is no beating 15 minutes to pure bliss.
One pan, loads of flavor and only 15 minutes make for one happy lady.
The base starts with a can of tomato puree, diced tomatoes and crushed tomatoes. I suggest using a reputable brand with good flavor as it is the star in this dish! Tender kale is allowed to soften first, then the three cans of tomatoes are added, along with fresh tortellini.
How amazing is fresh pasta? All the flavor of homemade pasta but without the hours and a flour destroyed kitchen? I am game. In today’s recipe, the pasta cooks in the tomato mixture, eliminating the need for an additional pan.
This soup is slightly sweet from the tomatoes, savory from the tender cheese tortellini and completely wholesome. Not much else I could ask for from a perfect restaurant rendition!
