One Pot Beefy Tomato Tortellini Soup is bursting with rich tomato flavor, hearty and flavorful ground beef, and cheese filled tortellini! This is the one pot meal that you will want over and over.
Isn’t it interesting how seasonal food can be? I know that during the summers I love lighter fare, bold flavors, and freshness. But when the weather starts to turn, and pumpkin everything starts populating the internet, I find myself craving beef, pasta, and recipes that are cheesy and classically comfort foods!
This one pot beefy tortellini tomato soup hits all the check boxes in the comfort food department, and is also an extremely easy and convenient meal. With only one pot, I get to enjoy exactly what I want with very little clean up.
Let’s talk about ingredients for a minute. To get a good final product, you have to start with good ingredients
I use a higher fat content ground beef for this One Pot Beefy Tomato Tortellini Soup recipe. I go with a 80/20 ground beef because I want all that flavor that comes from the fat. Then I simply drain the grease off before I add the other ingredients. I cooked the ground beef with an Italian Sausage too, as this is going to mean even more awesome flavor. And I can drain off all the grease.
By doing this I don’t get a greasy soup, but what I do get is rich, comforting, and flavorful ground beef and sausage mix, which acts as a great base and makes this soup hearty and filling.
I use the NEW Hunt’s Recipe Ready “Pre-measure 2TBS” Paste Pouches. These pouches are awesome. They are so convenient as they are already measured out, and prevent wasting a can of paste when it doesn’t all get used. I hate trying to store paste for future recipes. And really hate wasting anything Hunt’s as they truly have the best tasting tomato products. I think it has something to do with their flash steaming. So anyway, these new pouches are recipe ready, and easy to find on the tomato aisle at Walmart. Anyway, after I cook the beef and sausage, I brown some onion and garlic, then add the beef mixture back to the pan and mix it with the tomato paste. Again, we are locking in flavors so the soup is rich, hearty, and has layers of flavor.
In addition to the recipe ready paste, I love adding Hunt’s Diced Tomatoes. Because the tomatoes are flash steamed, they retain a lot more flavor, and your soup will require a lot less salt to be flavorful and delicious. Of course, you can use fresh if you have them, but the petite diced are awesome.
Then we have the cheese tortellini. I do not use the dried kind here, I get the kind you can find in the deli section or refrigerator section of the grocery store. They only need to be boiled for a couple minutes to soften, and you can cook them right in the soup, making them extra flavorful as well.
Because I want this to be a one pot meal, I start by cooking the Italian Sausage and ground beef, and strain it. So technically we might need to call this a one pot, one strainer meal! Either way, it is delicious and you are going to love it.
I love making One Pot Beefy Tomato Tortellini Soup in my Staub Dutch Oven. It’s a big pot and is perfect for my recipes.
One thing to keep in mind with this recipe is that it is not one that is great for leftovers. Usually I love soup as leftovers, but because of the tortellini, if you let this sit too long, it will resemble more of a pasta casserole with huge soggy noodles, then a soup. Make and serve it right away. If you want to be able to prepare it in advance you may want to pre-cook all the various components, and just assemble 15-20 minutes before serving.
