Slow Cooker Tortellini Soup Recipe

About a month ago, my sweet friend Janine let me know that she was on a quest to discover the best of the best Crock Pot recipes and I was fortunate enough to share a favorite slow cooker recipe on her site a couple of weeks ago. Maybe you caught it?

Just in case you missed it, I thought I would share that recipe with you today.

This time of year warm, comfort food calls to me. I frequently pull out the slow cooker and it sits on the counter cooking up a storm for weeks. It’s perfect for busy holiday evenings too.

I have a few absolute favorite recipes that I cannot live without, like Slow Cooker Tortellini Soup.

Slow Cooker Tortellini Soup Recipe

Slow Cooker Tortellini Soup RecipeIt’s a mouthful of creamy-delicious heaven folks.

  • 2 cans diced tomatoes
  • 1 block cream cheese, cubed
  • 1 lb. sausage
  • 1 bag frozen tortellini
  • Fresh spinach

Slow Cooker Tortellini Soup RecipeDirections:

Writing the word “directions” when it comes to slow cooker recipes always makes me giggle just a little bit. I mean, really? Aren’t most slow cooker recipes pretty much dump and serve?!

Well, maybe not the complex sort you make, but the ones I make? They are EEEEEASY!

So here we go…

  • Brown sausage on stove top.
  • Turn slow cooker to high heat.
  • Pour chicken broth and diced tomatoes into slow cooker. I like to use spiced tomatoes. In the case of this recipe, I usually grab an Italian blend or something with rosemary and oregano in it.
  • Cube cream cheese and add to chicken broth and tomato mixture.
  • Add sausage.
  • Chop spinach into smaller pieces and add to soup mixture.
  • Cook for four hours.
  • About 20 minutes prior to serving the soup, add the bag of tortellini to the mix.
