This Grilled Cheese Tomato Tortellini Soup is super tasty and simple to make. If you like grilled cheese sandwiches then your going to love this soup!
I grew up eating grilled cheese sandwiches, I have no idea how many I have eaten in my adolescent years. But I’m guessing hundreds if not… dare i say thousands.
I mean what kid doesn’t like a grilled cheese sandwich? Now that I am grown, I like to experiment with lets say, more sophisticated recipes. You know so that my family thinks my tastes have evolved.
This soup really satisfies my craving for a grilled cheese sandwich, which i admit comes on now and again. If you have kids, I can only imagine how much they would love this soup!
Also keep in mind, as with all my recipes. If you want to make more or less of this soup, simple adjust the serving size in the ingredients section above and the servings will automatically adjust for you. This soup can store in the fridge for up to 3 days and or freeze for up to 3 months.
Over the years I have made this soup a few different ways and found this recipe to sure hit the spot. Actually the day I discovered “Passata Sauce” is the day I started experimenting with homemade tomato soups.
So what is Passata Sauce?
Passata Sauce is the base for all Italian tomato sauces, it is uncooked tomato puree without seeds or skins. Essentially, it is tomato sauce in its rawest form. Of course you can always use fresh tomatoes by blending them into a puree in the blender as well. Totally up to you!
Then to add a bit more of a tomato base, I will use a can of tomato paste which blends out well when added to the vegetable stock.
Serve this alongside a grilled cheese sandwich and you will be in HEAVEN!
And without further adieu the secret ingredient is Philadelphia Cream Cheese!
