This easy vegetarian tortellini soup is like comfort food in a bowl! Packaged tortellini helps this soup come together in minutes!



  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small white onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 (16oz) jar of marinara sauce
  • 1 (14oz) can of Italian style diced tomatoes
  • 10 oz package cheese tortellini (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 oz Romano cheese (or Parmesan)


  1. In a large pot, heat the olive oil and add in the diced onion and minced garlic.
  2. Cook over medium heat for 3-4 minutes, or until the onions begin to soften.
  3. Add in the vegetable broth, marinara sauce, and diced tomatoes.
  4. Cook for 10-12 minutes over low heat.
  5. Just before serving, add in the frozen tortellini and cook for 4-5 minutes, or until the pasta is tender. Scoop into bowls and, grate a little Romano cheese on top.
  6. You may need to add a little salt and pepper, depending on your marinara sauce.


Rao’s tomato basil is my personal favorite marinara sauce!
