Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup

The Christmas tree is up and it smells so good! The fire is roaring in the fireplace and I’m sitting here all nice and cozy on the couch as I write this.
I just love this time of year. All the lights, the Christmas spirit, spending time with loved ones, baking Christmas goodies, it’s all so magical.
What else is magical? How about a big pot of this Creamy Tomato Tortellini Soup simmering away on your stove top!?
