i caved

i'm so weak. i totally caved and joined 'pinterest.' it is actually quite useful; i've found some wonderful things and am no longer jamming up the bookmarks folder on my computer. the thing i use it most for is food & recipes. i found a recipe for tomato tortellini soup last week and decided to try it this weekend. it started getting colder this weekend, and that always makes me want to curl up with a bowl of soup and a book. (and that's just what i did!)

here's the recipe! its super easy and delicious. i mean, really, it has cream in it. yum.

  • 1 package (9 ounces) refrigerated cheese tortellini
  • 2 cans (10-3/4 ounces each) reduced-sodium condensed tomato soup, undiluted
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 cups 2% milk
  • 2 cups half-and-half cream
  • 1/2 cup chopped oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Additional shredded Parmesan cheese, optional
  • Cook tortellini according to package directions.
  • Meanwhile, in a Dutch oven, combine the soup, broth, milk, cream, tomatoes and seasonings. Heat through, stirring frequently. Drain tortellini; carefully add to soup. Stir in cheese. Sprinkle each serving with additional cheese if desired.

  1. OK, I don't even particularly like tomato soup, but that looks super yummy!

  2. Dang. I thought you were going to say you caved and found out the gender of your baby! haha!

  3. I thought the same thing as Ashley. But the soup sounds good too!
