A filling, creamy soup slow cooked for hours with tortellini and goat cheese, this is by far The Best Tomato Soup Recipe you’ll ever try!

Bowl of tomato soup topped with cheese

It’s in the midst of winter, so all I can think about is a big bowl of something hot, filling and comforting. That is what always cheers me up on cool winter days.

 

Tomato soup is a classic. BUT, I wanted to give it some extra “umph!” and amp it up! I mean you know me, you know my style I can’t just have something boring now can I?

I love tomato soup so this recipe really warms me to my soul, and it is super easy to whip up with not a lot of effort, and those recipes are some of my favorites.

The flavors in this soup are beyond your normal tomato soup which I said really amps up up and gives it a delicious flavor that I can’t resist!

Some of my other favorite soup recipes we have on our site include Rotisserie Chicken Noodle Soup, French Onion Soup and this Vegetable Tortellini Soup!

WHY THIS RECIPE WORKS?

  • Cooking it in the slow cooker for hours makes it super easy to just throw together and forget about it all day.
  • The soup itself is super flavorful and creamy.
  • I added tortellini to make it nice and hearty, perfect for any meal!
  • The addition of goat cheese gives it an unexpected flavor that cannot be beaten!

Adding the bold flavor of goat cheese and the heartiness of cheese tortellini, makes it perfect for a weeknight dinner or easily reheated for lunches during the week!

When I finally tasted this yummy concoction, I went nuts! This is by far the best soup I have ever made!! And we have been making it over and over again ever since!

Tools used to make the Best Tomato Soup Recipe

Overhead of soup with cheese and bread

I ate this for lunches during the week with crusty bread and I couldn’t have been happier! It really does make a good leftover meal to bring places like work or for a quick lunch on the go.

It is something we do a lot, if you have a nice thermos or something to store it in where it can either stay warm or be reheated easily.

HOW TO TO MAKE THE BEST TOMATO SOUP RECIPE:

  1. Place the tomatoes, herb paste, salt, garlic, chicken stock, and 1 cup of the half and half into the slow cooker. Stir to combine, place on the lid and cook on high heat for 2-4 hours (4-8 hours on low). If you are home while this is cooking, stir every 30 minutes or so. 45 minutes before serving, use an immersion blender, blend until smooth.
  2. In a medium-sized skillet, melt the butter over medium heat and add in the flour. Whisk until there are no lumps and continue to cook while whisking for 2 minutes.
  3. Slowly, pour in the remaining half and half while whisking. Let come to a simmer while continuing to whisk.
  4. Place into the slow cooker and stir to combine. Add in the goat cheese and tortellini, stir to combine and cook for an additional 30 minutes, until the tortellini are cooked through and the cheese has melted.
  5. Serve with more goat cheese as a garnish if desired, enjoy!

See I can’t stress enough how easy this is to make, you can just tell by those instructions that there is simplicity in The Best Tomato Soup Recipe for sure!

HOW TO STORE:

This soup is best stored in the refrigerator, it should be kept in an airtight container such as a Tupperware container. It should last for up to 3 days.

To reheat just place in a saucepan over the store and heat to temperature and then serve.

I don’t recommend freezing this recipe as freezing pasta like tortellini in recipes degrades the pasta and when reheating will make it mushy.

TIPS AND TRICKS:

  • If you don’t own an immersion blender, you can dump the soup into a blender and blend that way and the place back into the slow cooker.
  • Adding the pasta the last 30 minutes of cooking ensures that your pasta is still semi firm and is not mushy.
  • If you are not a fan of goat cheese, you can replace it with another kind of soft cheese that you enjoy.
  • We like to enjoy dipping crispy bread into this so a baguette would be a nice side for this soup.
  • If you like meat added to your tomato soup you can replace the cheese tortellini with meat if you can find it.

    This looks like something you’d find on Panera Bread’s menu! And I love that you make it in a slow cooker. Perfect for these snowy winter days we’re having!

    Sounds wonderful! But is there a chicken stock substitution for Lent?

    Mouth watering delicious. Thank you for sharing. Aussie winter coming along down here, so it will be soup n a chunk of bread weather.

    Jaques Pepin made a “Red Soup” like this with red peppers added. It was delicious, then I lost the recipe. He recently recommended using water rather than chicken stock which may overpower the tomato flavor.
