    Easy & yummy for the whole family!

    Christina Ward from Lakewood, OH

    We have a 13 mo old who absolutely LOVED this dish. EXTREMELY easy to make. YUM!

    This is a meal on its own with a few additions!

    Virna from San Diego CA

    I've been making this soup for years and it's always a big hit in our family. My kids actually ask for it when the weather starts getting cold. I've made it exactly by the recipe and it turns out just fine, no complaints. It's really good, just the way it is. However, we did start playing around with it when we were missing ingredients and I think it's even better with the adjustments... - We use 1/2-n-1/2 instead of milk. It gives it a creamier, richer taste without using the heavy cream (sooo much fat!) . - We exchanged one can of soup for a can of tomato sauce. This gave the tomato flavor a big punch and made the soup a darker red color (the original recipe turns out sort of pinkish). - We add more basil because we love the basil. Also, it takes more to really taste it. If you're using fresh, wait until the soup is done to add it, or it just cooks away. Finally, we have used mini-ravioli's in here instead of tortellini, and they work just as well. We had a loaf

    I've made this for years

    stephaniec from Marion, IL

    After discovering this soup at a local restaurant I recreated it using frozen tortellini (beef or cheese), tomato soup (prepared with water), and a shake or two of Italian seasoning. This soup is great on a cold winter's day. It's quick and easy way to dress up plain tomato soup. Serve with grilled cheese or a nice salad.

    Easy and Filling

    Mom of 3 from

    I make this all the time in winter, and it is so easy to throw together. Sometime, I add chopped carrots and yellow squash to the soup, and cook til tender, before I add the tortelli (it cooks faster then the veggies.) My kids love it!

    Super easy and filling

    Amber McKinstry from Birmingham

    This makes a great light dinner. I added a pinch pf garlic powder and it was wonderfully creamy & yummy! This is great for a crisp fall evening with a light salad of greens with fruit and some bread. MMMMM!

    AWESOME!

    Joanne from MA

    I made this the other night for my b/f and I. We both loved it. Definitely use the recommended pasta, and the milk gave it a nice, creamy taste. I used more fresh basil than suggested, because we love basil. I also made grilled cheese sandwiches. A quick, satisfying fall meal.

    Don't Substitute Brands

    Susy W. from Davenport, Fla

    I used another brand of pasta in this recipe and didn't care for it. I made it again with the listed brand and it turned out better. The basil wasn't enough herb flavor for me so I added some oregano too.

    Good Soup!

    Maria M from Ottawa ON Canada

    I have made this soup many times now, but have stopped using milk, as I find it will sometimes curdle or become lumpy. I use water instead, and it still tastes very good.

    Seconds?!

    Leanne ™ from College Station/Killeen, TX

    Everyone in my family enjoyed this. I barely pre-cooked (warmed-up) the tortillini because I didn't want them to be soggy. Good warm light meal. I actually served this w/Dijon Honey Chicken. Recipe on this site. Both were winners.

    Easy and Tasty

    wende burton from

    This is one of our family favorites. I sometimes add carrots and cut up yellow squash, or other vegtables in the fridge for a change of pace. Put them in before you add the tortelli, as they sometimes take longer to cook. I also put fresh cracked black pepper on top. It is easy, hearty, and is great on a cold night. My kids love it too! Highly recommend!

    Yummy, yummy!

    Nina from Chicago, IL

    This soup was very delicious. I used heavy whipping cream instead of milk and about 3 teaspoons of chopped fresh basil. It was very creamy. I'll definitely make it again.

    Really, Really Good

    Britney from Pittsburgh, PA

    When I made this dish, everyone in my family loved it. The only thing I did different from the recipe was that I seasoned my chicken first (with season salt, poultry seasoning, onion powder, lemon-pepper seasoning). By seasoning the chicken first, it has much more flavor.

    Even Better when you get creative!

    Erin from Laguna Niguel, California

    I thought this was sooooo good! I was very impressed with the taste. Being a mother of 18 month old twins it is hard finding something so fast and so good. I loved it the first time I made it and I even screwed up. It says to add grated parmesan. well, I added the shredded parmesan as well to the breading and it made the chicken crunchier and the parmesan flavor come out 10 time more. I also thought the marinara sauce was a little on the weak side and I am not much for marinara. So, what I did was made spaghetti sauce and added a few different spices. Then I just made regular spaghetti noodles and had the chicken top that. I loved this meal! It is great and fast A+ on my side.

    Rich from Los Angeles

    I made this today and found it very flavorful and easy to make- only made the chicken though as i had leftover rice. Made my own breadcrumbs from leftover bread dried in the oven- added sum garlic powder too. Soaked the chicken in soy sauce for a few minutes before and it was TASTY. Made it for some workers who were at my house and they all wolfed it down.

    Quick, Easy and Delicious!

    Aileen from Brandon,FL

    I am a college student who has never cooked chicken in my life. I tried this recipe out one night when I cooked dinner for my boyfriend. I crossed my fingers and hoped that it would turn out okay. He loved it! It was great; better than my favorite Italian restaurant! I have made it several times since. My parents were amazed when they tried it. My advise is to double the batch so you have leftovers. The prep time is quick, the instructions are easy to follow and the result is delicious. Add a salad, pasta and some garlic bread and you'll have a full coarse italin meal in less than 30 minutes! Trust me, you can't screw it up.

    I made this dish last night for my husband and another couple. I must confess that I am not much of a cook. My husband said it was probably one of the best meals I have prepared, and he definitely wants me to make it again. All of the reviews were very helpful. I did use a zestier sauce and added more cheese. I was telling my mother about it, and she wanted the recipe. I said I would have her and my father over for dinner and fix it for them instead! This one's easy to make and a keeper.

    Pretty darn good

    Candace Avalos from Las Cruces New Mexico

    I've always wanted to try chicken parmesan but I have a hard time ordering something I'm not sure if I'll like so when I found this recipe I thought "Why not". (If I didn't like it I could always toss it and eat cereal) It was quick and pretty tasty and my husband and 4 kiddos loved it. I still prefer white sauces to red so tonight I'm gonna use an alfredo sauce instead. The best part is I can make the whole meal in minutes and still manage time to go over homework and play with the baby.

    I found this recipe in a magazine back in the 90's,it called for cutting the tomato bottoms off in the shape of stars which you bake beside the stuffed ones,since it's red and green it's perfect for Christmas!

    Fancy tomatoes

    PJ Janowitz from Hialeah, FL

    I have used this recipe to dress up a plain and simple dinner, as well as to embellish a fancy one. They are delicious, especially when tomatoes in the market are less than tasty. I agree, you need to lightly salt the inside of the tomatoes, then turn them upside down to drain out some of the liquid. Not only delicious but pretty as well.

  •  Star(s)

    SOOO YUMMY.

    melissa from new york, ny

    These are SO good. Just make sure you sprinkle some salt on the tomatoes to dry them out before stuffing them, or else it gets a little runny. I make a ton of these and snack on them throughout the week.

    Try This..IT's even better!

    Amanda Helton from Birmingham, AL

    Cook the spinach and the cheese together in a small bowl or casserole dish before filling the tomatoes. The after stuffing sprinkle a little cheese on top. It is a lot tastier and the tomatoes don't fall apart when trying to pick them up and eat them.

    Excellent

    caron brady from levittown, new york

    I have made these over a dozen times since first trying them. They are wonderful. Definately add parmesan to the mixture before filling the tomatoes. Bon Appetit.

    rachell barger from tokyo japan

    I liked this recipe. VERY EASY. The only trouble I had was the tomatoes getting mushy and falling over when they were cooking. I will make this again.!! Very good.

    Easy

    Lisa from Winchendon MA

    I made these last night. My husband thought they were very good. I did add a little more cheese into the mixture, also I added some bacon bits. This gave it a bit of texture and more flavor. I'll be making these again.

    Great Side Dish

    Jennifer from San Antonio, TX

    I made these for a side dish at Thanksgiving. They were great. Everybody loved them. I had so many compliments on the stuffed tomatoes. All of my family was happy to see something different as a side dish. I will be making these again, since they are so easy to make.

    Great Prensentation

    Nancy from Minneapolis

    These would work well with anything. I served these with a brown rice pilaf and some grilled halibut. It really did add some nice colour to the plate. It was a nice change to a dinner salad. I took the advice of the last review and mixed some extra parmesan cheese through the spinach before I spooned the mixture into the tomatoes. I actually think you could doctor these up even more if you wanted before filling the tomatoes. The only thing you have to be careful of is leaving them in too long as they will start to fall as the tomatoe softens up. I had one colapse because it was in a little too long. It didn't ruin the taste though...they were wonderful. I will definately be making these again!!

    Gimme More!!!!!!!

    Christi W from

    This side dish was soooooooooo good, I had to go back for more. I only used 4 tomatoes to one pkg. of spinach souffle, and topped it with fresh parm cheese. Next time though, I will mix some extra parmesan into the spinach, and on top. This one is a keeper.

      Lemon Perfection!

      Suzanne Sharpton from Beaumont, TX

      We ate this entire cake within 24 hours of making it! It is absolutely perfect and I made it exactly as the recipes specifies. I love that it's made with all natural lemon flavor - no artificial aftertaste. This recipe has a permanent place in my recipe collection.

      Delicious lemony flavor

      Patricia Bove from Saint Cloud, FL

      I made this cake to take to my husband's Aunt & Uncle's for Easter dinner. As there were to be an abundance of desserts, I baked it into 2 loaves and brought one. I followed the recipe, but added a teaspoon of lemon extract to the batter. Everyone loved the great lemon flavor of this cake. I served the other loaf when we had company later in the week, again to rave reviews! There were many requests for the recipe.

      It was good..not great...

      LISA LOMBARDO from Turnersville, NJ

      I thought the cake was moist and tasty, but it did NOT have the texture of a pound cake at all. I didn't care for the glaze that much. It was too tangy. I am not crazy about mixing lemon juice and powdered sugar to make a glaze. It needs something else to cut back on the acid of the lemons. I probably wouldn't make this again because I've had better lemon pound cakes.

      BEST LEMON POUND CAKE EVER!

      Joyce Miller from ,

      First, thank you for this fantastic recipe (an adjective I rarely use). My alterations: I baked the dough in two loaf pans, but for company on its way, I'd use the bundt pan. Next, I melted the morsels at 50% power--easy! Finally, I omitted the glaze. Instead, I brought to a simmer 1/2 c. lemon juice and 1/2 c. granualted sugar. As soon as the cakes were browned and tested done, I poked the tops with a thin-bladed knife. Then, I slowly spooned on the cooled glaze. When the cakes cooled in the pans on cooling racks, I had no problem removing them from the pans (I use parchment paper). I did have a problem resisting the wonderful crust and taste of this cake. Wonderful--a favorite now and forever! (And I've been a baker and saver of recipes for over 30 years.)
