Simple and delicious, wish we could post photos in the comments of this as my 10 mo old thoroughly enjoyed eating this with her hands. In response to one of the comments above I didn't put the full amount of gf ravioli in and the ratio was on the hearty soup side.

It's really not a soup. The pasta to liquid ratio really just makes this a pasta dish with a soupy sauce. I enjoyed the flavor and it was not bad at all, but don't go in expecting "soup" unless you make modifications.

I used an immersion blender to purée the soup before I added the tortellini. Adults and kids loved it!

Very different from my usual tomato soup. I liked the difference! I guess this will become a staple.
