Quick and Super Easy Tomato Tortellini Soup

Quick and Super Easy Tomato Tortellini Soup
This is great for when you are short on time and don’t want to order out.  This recipe is like comfort food for your tummy and soul.

2 (10.75 oz cans condensed tomato soup)
1 tbsp dried oregano
1 tbsp dried basil
1 tsp dried parsley
3/4 tsp ground black pepper
4 1/2 oz fresh tortellini pasta
Directions: Prepare soup in a medium saucepan according to package directions (if you want it to be even more creamy you can add milk (I suggest almond milk) instead of water.  Add the oregano, basil, parsley and ground black pepper.  Simmer for about 5 minutes over medium heat, stirring often.  Reduce heat to low and add the tortellini.  Continue to simmer for 5 more minutes, or until tortellini is cooked.  Serve warm.  This is delicious with a little grated parmesan cheese sprinkled on top with a side salad and homemade cornbread or crescent rolls if you’re feeling like indulging a little.  Makes 4 servings.
