Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup

We all loved this! It’s from Taste of Home. I was going to add just 4 cups of milk instead of the 2 cups of half and half but the calories were relatively low with it, so I added it for extra flavor. The store was out of fat free half and half.  We’ll try that next time.

1 package (9 ounces) refrigerated cheese tortellini (I used prob 2/3 of a 19 oz bag of frozen)
2 cans (10-3/4 ounces each) reduced-sodium condensed tomato soup, undiluted
2 cups vegetable broth
2 cups 2% milk
2 cups half-and-half
1/2 cup chopped oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions
Cook tortellini according to package directions.
Meanwhile, in a Dutch oven, combine the soup, broth, milk, cream, tomatoes and seasonings. Heat through, stirring frequently. Drain tortellini; carefully add to soup.  Yield: 10 servings (2-1/2 quarts).
