Minute Tomato Soup with Tortellini
This is a “doctored” version of your basic canned tomato soup. Some dried herbs and half a package of frozen tortellini transform the simplest lunchtime fare into something, well, almost sophisticated. Great for a last-minute dinner party.
2 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed tomato soup
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried parsley
3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
4-1/2 ounces cheese tortellini
Prepare soup in a medium saucepan according to package directions. Add the oregano, basil, parsley and ground black pepper, stirring well, over medium heat. Simmer for 5 minutes, reduce heat to low and add the tortellini. Continue to simmer for 5 more minutes, or until tortellini is cooked.
