Slow Cooker Creamy Tortellini Soup

by Laura

I have kind of been on a pasta kick lately.  I have been making all kinds of recipes using frozen ravioli and tortellini. This Slow Cooker Creamy Tortellini Soup is one of my latest discoveries and is one of my favorites.  This simple soup is made in your slow cooker.  I love it when I can let my slow cooker do most of the work for my dinner. Isn’t it the best?

I also love the combination of the creamy tomato base surrounding the tortellini, spinach, mushrooms, and sausage. Another bonus – it only takes 7 ingredients to make.  Hardest part is of making this slow cooker creamy tortellini soup is browning the sausage.

FYI, for you locals I will be appearing today on Fresh Living at 1 pm on channel 2, so check out what I will be sharing in their kitchen.

Slow Cooker Creamy Tortellini Soup


  • 1 lb Italian sausage, browned (you can also do 1/2 ground beef and 1/2 sausage)
  • 1 (24 oz) jar marinara sauce
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 (8 oz) pkg regular cream cheese, cut into 1 inch chunks
  • 1 (8 oz) pkg sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/2 bag (4.5 oz) fresh spinach leaves
  • 1 (16-19 oz) pkg frozen cheese tortellini
  • shredded parmesan cheese, optional for topping


  1. Add sausage, marinara sauce, chicken broth, cream cheese, mushrooms, and spinach to your slow cooker. Cook on low for 6 hours, on high for 2-3.
  2. Then add frozen tortellini and cook on high for 15 minutes or until tender and hot.
  3. Serve topped with parmesan cheese if desired.


It is best to use full fat cream cheese in this recipe to get it to blend in well. Reduced fat or fat free and curdle.

I love this recipe! But the cream cheese never seems to blend all the way.
Any tips?

Last night my friends and I had a Girls Night where we got together and made Italian dishes and I made your Creamy Tortellini Soup and it was a big hit. So simple to make. Will definitely be making this again. Thank you!!

Do you just brown the sausage a little and let it finish cooking in the crockpot or completely cook and brown the sausage before placing it in the crockpot?

My BFF used italian style diced tomatoes instead of marina, a diced carrot, and a diced yellow onion.
She made a double batch and it was even better the 2nd day. YUMMMMMM
