This tomato tortellini soup is quick, easy to make, and comforting. This tasty family dinner is ready in just over half an hour.
Add the olive oil and butter to a soup pot over medium-high heat. Once the butter has melted, add the onion and sauté it for 5-7 minutes.
Stir in the garlic and flour, and cook it for about a minute.
Stir (or whisk) in the chicken broth until the flour has dissolved.
Add the canned tomatoes, Italian seasoning, sugar, and cream to the pot. Increase the heat to high and bring it to a gentle boil.
Once the soup is boiling, add the tortellini and reduce the heat to a simmer. Let it cook for 8 minutes. Season with salt & pepper as needed. If using the fresh basil, add it in a few minutes prior to serving. Serve soup with freshly grated parmesan over top if desired.
