Lasagna Tortellini Soup Recipe
Servings: 6 servings
1 pound extra lean ground beef
1/2 cup yellow onion chopped
2 cloves garlic minced
1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes
1 can (14.5 ounces) petite diced tomatoes
1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
1 can (10.75 ounces) tomato condensed soup
1 teaspoon white sugar
1 and 1/2 teaspoons dried basil
1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds optional
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 tablespoon salt adjust to preference
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3 cups beef broth
1 package (16 ounces) frozen cheese filled tortellini
4 tablespoons fresh parsley optional
Toppings: freshly grated Parmesan cheese, large spoonful of ricotta cheese
- In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef until cooked through. Add the onion and garlic in the last few minutes of the cooking. They don’t need to cook or get all the way tender, I just like them to have a little bit of that “skillet-cooked” flavor.
- While the beef is cooking, pour the crushed tomatoes, petite diced tomatoes, tomato paste, and tomato condensed soup in the slow cooker. No need to drain any of the cans!
- Add in the sugar and seasonings – the dried basil, fennel, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.
- I loved the amount of seasoning in this soup, but definitely adjust these seasonings to your personal preference. You can always start with less seasoning and add more. READ MORE
