This easy recipe for Crock-Pot Sausage And Cheese Tortellini Soup is quick to make and toss together in the slow cooker. The addition of cream cheese thickens up the soup slightly and creates a creaminess that just soothes the soul.
I used just regular pork sausage to make this recipe kid friendly. However you can spice it up by using a spicy Italian sausage. Or even change the flavor profile with any type of sausage you like.
The cooking time on this recipe is pretty important. Anything over the 6 hours in the recipe and your tortellini will get mushy.
Unless of course you like mushy pasta, then by all means cook it longer!
Serve this soup with a nice crisp green salad and some crusty bread for a delicious dinner.
