Aunt Petunia’s Soup (Easy Tomato Tortellini Soup)


  • 15 ounce canned tomato sauce or crushed tomatoes
  • 2 cups half-and-half
  • 2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • ½ cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 9 ounce package cheese tortellini

Cook tortellini according to package instructions.  In a large pot, combine tomato sauce, half-and-half, broth, spices and cheese.  Heat thoroughly.  When tortellini is done cooking, drain the water and add the tortellini to the hot soup.  Serve with extra Parmesan Cheese.

Hagrid’s Bath Buns were hard and inedible, but we will be changing that by making a savory and soft roll.


  • 1 tube Pillsbury refrigerated crescent rolls

Bake according to package instructions.
