Suggestions for the Best Tortellini Soup
- I love using pasta in this soup! It gives it such a good texture and makes it more filling. Sometimes using soup as a main dish doesn’t fill me up, but with the sausage and pasta, this soup definitely does.
- Make sure that you drain the sausage really well, as the soup will turn out greasy if you don’t.
- For a vegetarian variation, use mushrooms instead of sausage and substitute vegetable stock for chicken broth.
- If you like your food spicy, add a few shakes of red pepper flakes to the crock pot before cooking.
- Use turkey sausage and non or low fat cream cheese for an even healthier option. Just a warning though: Neufchatel (1/3 fat of cream cheese) it doesn’t melt as well and leaves little curds.
- This soup pairs well with a green salad and toasted bread that you can dip in the soup.
