4. Crock Pot Chicken Tortellini Soup

This soup is an upgrade from traditional chicken noodle soup and packed with flavor and texture! It’s a fast and convenient crock pot meal that will please the whole family.

This hearty Italian soup is packed with Italian sausage, onions, garlic and beef broth for added flavor and nutrients! Serve it over tortellini, tomatoes, green peppers and zucchini or top it off with some spinach leaves for extra color and nutrients!

In a large soup pot over medium heat, saute the onion, garlic and Italian seasoning until softened. Stir in diced tomatoes and broth once liquid begins to boil; reduce heat and cover pot to keep everything warm.

Once the liquid has reduced and the soup has turned a light pink, remove from heat. To thicken, whisk together flour and cream in a small bowl before pouring this mixture into your crockpot along with frozen or fresh tortellini.

For a fiery Italian-flavored soup, use hot Italian sausage instead of mild or regular pork sausage. Additionally, you can add more vegetables like sun-dried tomatoes and bell peppers for additional flavor.

For a lighter version of this soup, swap half and half for the heavy cream. You may also add a dash of water to thin it out if desired.

When storing this soup in the fridge, use airtight containers. You may also freeze it using freezer zipper bags; however, keep in mind that pre-cooked tortellini does not freeze well and will absorb a lot of the soup’s moisture.

Reheated soup is easy: just place the tortellini and other ingredients back into a crockpot and heat on low for 25-30 minutes until heated through. Serve hot with breadsticks and cheese for extra flavor!
