Tortellini and Turkey Meatballs Soup

Ack, it’s been cold! We love the snow, our warm breath creating whispy clouds as we exhale, and cuddling under blankets to watch a good movie with hot chocolate. We also love winter comfort foods, those delicious wholesome meals that warm us straight through with each toasty bite.

Soups are a favorite for me, and I love making turkey meatballs because they are lighter than traditional meatballs, a little leaner, and just as delicious. I’m sharing my favorite Tortellini and Turkey Meatballs Soup recipe, a favorite comfort food, for you to enjoy and stay toasty warm!


Tortellini and Turkey Meatballs Soup

This is an easy to make recipe, and I let my boys help me create the meatballs out of the mixture. Afterwards, we enjoy it together while watching movies, or have a family dinner when dad comes home from work.


1 lb lean ground turkey breast
1/2 small red onion, finely minced
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 teaspoon dried basil, crushed
1 clove garlic, minced
salt and pepper to taste

2 14 oz cans chicken broth
2 tablespoons Hunt’s Recipe Ready tomato paste
1 package cheese tortellini

(serves about 6)



1. Preheat oven to 350º F.

2. Combine the turkey, onion, parmesan cheese, the bread crumbs, basil, garlic, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl together with a wooden spoon until well mixed.

3. Roll the turkey mixture into 1 1/4 inch balls (your kids can help you do this!) and place in a baking dish at least an inch apart. Bake at 350º F for 25 minutes.

3. While turkey meatballs are cooking, heat the chicken broth in a pot over medium heat until boiling. Add in tortellini and cook to al dente (usually over medium heat for 4 minutes).

4. Lower heat to simmering and add in Hunt’s Recipe Ready tomato paste. Stir together and simmer for additional two minutes.

5. Add in meatballs and cook together for four minutes over medium heat until tortellini is tender and meatballs have absorbed chicken tomato juice.

6. Remove from heat, and ladle soup into the bowls. Serve and enjoy!


My family deserves the best I can give them

I only provide my family what I can feel good about, because I love them. I care just as much about my friends and guests- anyone I invite to my home. It’s important to me to offer them delicious meals that are made with ingredients I believe in.

Hunt’s Recipe Ready Paste is a 100% natural, non-GMO paste with no artificial preservatives. It comes in individual 2 tablespoon serving Tear-n-Toss pouches (which is perfect since most recipes, like my Tortellini and Turkey meatballs recipe, call for about two tablespoons of tomato paste). It saves money and time for me.


Hunt’s Recipe Ready Paste is the same great paste found in a Hunt’s can, made with tomatoes grown in California, and picked and canned at the peak of ripeness… just in an easy to open pouch. It is already measured for you so no mess or work! You can find Hunt’s Recipe Ready Paste near Hunt’s canned tomatoes at the market.
