Slow Cooker Recipes: Tortellini Sausage Soup

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure policy here.

A year or so ago I got this recipe from my cute, sassy friend Becca from Blue Cricket Designs.  I wasn’t sure how my family would take to it because it’s a) soup (I loooove soup but my boys? Not so much) and b) tortellini and sausage…. I just didn’t know if it would fly.  On one particular cold, rainy day I decided it was worth a shot.  They LOVED it so so much!  It’s now my go to for chilly days.   And I’m all about slow cooker recipes.  They make my life so much easier if I can get my act together ahead of time. Delicious Slow Cooker Tortellini Sausage Soup - perfect chilly day meal

When my Dad passed away a few weeks ago, a few ladies from church brought over a big, huge bowl full of this soup.  It was the perfect comfort food.  Their recipe called for zucchini and carrot- a little different from this one.   I think next time I’ll add some and see if the rest of my family is still on board.

    I made the tortellini sausage soup tonight for dinner and my whole family loved it! It was so good! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

      You don’t have to cook the sausage first. Because it’s in there all day long, it cooks. I put it on the bottom of the crockpot and stir every once in awhile when I think about it. (but I have just left it before and it’s been fine)

    These all look so good! I need to try some new things in the crock pot, love tortellini, hopefully the kids will like this!
