Creamy Tortellini Soup

This Creamy Tortellini Soup is one of the most hearty, warm filling dishes ever! There’s nothing better than gathering the family around the table with bowls of comforting, nourishing soup and warm bread.  During the winter months it seems we linger at the table a little longer, filling bowl after bowl of this rich soup and catch up on conversation and good times. This is one of our family’s favorite soup recipes. Hearty pasta, sausage and spinach give the meal extra bulk, while the creamy tomato base warms your insides and your soul. Plus, the whole thing can be made ahead of time in the slow cooker so dinner is done by the time you get home!

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 (⅓ 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.

  1. 5 stars
    So easy to make and so delicious!!! I can see this as a frequent meal in my household. Followed the recipe exactly and it was perfection.

    1. I wouldn’t use my Instant Pot for this recipe. If you want a quicker cooking method, just put everything in a pot on the stove top and simmer for at least 30 minutes.
