Slow Cooker Creamy Tortellini Soup

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

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.  You make this simple soup 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 soup base surrounding the cheese filled tortellini, spinach, mushrooms, and sausage. Another bonus is the soup only takes 7 ingredients to make.  Hardest part is of making this slow cooker creamy tortellini soup is browning the sausage. You can even use a combination of ground beef and sausage if you’d like. I wouldn’t do all ground beef though. That sausage adds flavor to the soup.

Notes

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.

  1. 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!!

  2. 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?

  3. 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
