How to Make Tomato Soup

On a chilly winter day knowing how to make tomato soup from scratch can be vital. This recipe is sure to warm you right up and homemade always tastes better than the canned version.

Directions
1. 
In a large saucepan cook onion in hot oil until tender. Add tomatoes, broth, water, tomato sauce, sage, salt, and pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover; simmer for 30 minutes. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
2. 
Meanwhile, cook tortellini according to package directions; drain. Press tomato mixture through a food mill. (Or, place one-third to one-half of the mixture at a time in a blender container or food processor bowl. Cover and blend or process until smooth.)
3. 
Return mixture to pan. Add drained tortellini; heat through. To serve, ladle into soup bowls; sprinkle with cheese. If desired, garnish with sage. Makes 6 side-dish or 4 main-dish servings.
