Slow Cooker Sausage Tortellini Soup

 Updated pictures October 2014.

I have made this Slow Cooker Sausage Tortellini Soup three times in the past two weeksThat is how much we have enjoy this soup.

After the first bite of this Crock-Pot Sausage Tortellini Soup, we all looked at each other and said “this is the best soup I have ever had”.  I still enjoy my Chicken Tortilla Soup, Chicken Pot Pie Soup, Turkey & Wild Rice Soup, Chicken Noodle Soup, Cheeseburger Soup, Chili, and more, but I think this Slow Cooker Sausage Tortellini Soup is everyone’s new favorite.   I added sausage, spinach, carrots, condensed tomato soup, Ms. Dash Tomato Basil, and Garlic, to make a Cheese Tortellini soup recipe a little more hardy and tasty.  The original recipe was basic with chicken broth, cream cheese, Italian seasoning, and Cheese Tortellini.  After making this soup several times, I learned that it is best to add the Cheese Tortellini the last hour of cooking.  I hope you will try this soup and let me know what you think.

Ingredients for the Crock-Pot Sausage Tortellini Soup.

Crock-Pot Sausage Tortellini Soup

Cook this Crock-Pot Sausage Tortellini Soup on high for 3 & 1/2 hours. Add the torellini the last hour of cooking.   The soup still taste great if you cook everything together like you see here in the picture but the Tortellini holds together better if you add it the last hour of cooking.

    Diane , I just discovered your blog and saw the recipe for the Sausage Tortellini Soup. Had everything in the pantry but the sausage so went to the store and picked up some Italian Sausage. The soup was absolutely delicious!!

    Tomorrow is going to be a rainy day here in Central Ohio so guess what will be on the menu tomorrow night. Went to store & bought the sausage today. Yum!

    BTW, love you site.

    Blessings, Connie

    Diane, I look forward to buying a new camera- mine is starting to have some issues, but I need to save up for a nice camera :) Sometimes I think it’s easier for someone who isn’t an expert to instruct others on a subject, simply because they just say, “This is what I do, this works for me,” without all the jargon and stuff. But that’s just my thoughts. I think it would be awesome if you wrote that post!

  • dianeroark January 12, 2014, 5:06 PM


    Thank you for your comment. I got a new camera this year and I am slowly replacing all the older pictures. It is a slow process. I was thinking this weekend I would like to do a post about the light when taking a picture. It is truly all about light. I was going to take pictures of where I take my pictures and explain how to do it. I have never done a post like that before because I am NO expert. I do not think I know much at all BUT I am slowly learning. Thanks for encouraging me. Maybe soon, I will write a post.

  • Jamie @ Coffee With Us 3 January 12, 2014, 3:37 PM

    Diane, I would love to get some tips from you some time on how you take such amazing food pictures! Seriously, every post of yours makes me hungry- they look incredible! So glad to be co-hosting Saturday Dishes with you!

    I noticed this a couple of days ago. I had someone helping me make a couple of changes on my blog and I am afraid she may have removed them. Hopefully, she can fix it soon. I have had a couple of people this morning notice my buttons are gone.

    My Pinterest name is diane_roark.
    Blessings and I hope you are making a lot of progress with your pictures and everything you needed to get done.

    Hey, Diane, what’s happened to your “follow me on Pinterest” or “follow me on “twitter” or “follow me on facebook” buttons? I noticed you don’t have the pin it button over each picture in the post anymore either?

    I was trying to find your pinterest boards and couldn’t locate them.

    It really is delicious! It is truly my family favorite soup now!

    Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment.
    Blessings and have a great night.

    This Sausage Tortellini Soup is definitely my favorite soup. It is full of flavor. We love it!!

  • Andrea Kelly December 5, 2013, 7:06 PM

    Yum! This looks delicious! Will definitely have to try this out on Captain America one of these warm winter nights. I’ve been in a soup “mood” lately, but so many of them are just not hearty enough to keep you full, usually when we do soup we’re both back in the kitchen an hour later rummaging for something more to fill us up!

  • Irene S December 5, 2013, 6:53 PM

    This soup looks so yummy I have to make it. Thanks for the recipe.

    I lived on the North shore of New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina. We did not have power for over 4 weeks. This weather should not be NOTHING like that but the temperature was not in the 20’s during Katrina. HOPEFULLY, nothing will happen.
    Thanks for your prayers!!!
    Have a great weekend,
    Diane Roark

  • Janine Huldie December 5, 2013, 7:01 AM

    Diane, praying you don’t lose power. We lost for 2 days last year with Hurricane Sandy (and we were the lucky ones, because some were out for over 2 weeks!). So, I know how frustrating, annoying and even scary it can be. Just got my fingers crossed that doesn’t happen and that you guys get spared.

  • dianeroark December 5, 2013, 6:59 AM


    An Italian sausage would be great! I have never had chicken sausage but I would definitely try it. This soup has a wonderful flavor.

    I will be preparing for your kind of weather. We are expecting an inch of ice and other winter mix tomorrow and maybe more on Sunday. They are saying we could loose power for up to a week. Hopefully, nothing will happen but I will definitely prepare. If you do not hear from me, you will know why.

    Blessings, Diane Roark

  • Janine Huldie December 5, 2013, 6:37 AM

    Not a huge sausage fan here and wonder if I could even substitute chicken sausage (which I prefer better). I made tortellini just last night, but made my own homemade Alfredo sauce to go with it, but was trying to come up with soup ideas, so this gave me a bit of inspiration for when I make it again. Thanks Diane!! :)
