Are you looking for an extremely delicious soup?  I have made this Slow Cooker Sausage Tortellini Soup three times in the past two weeks. 

Today, I am going to teach you how to make it.  Be sure to see the video in this post. 


What is in this Slow Cooker Sausage Tortellini Soup?

I added sausage, spinach, carrots, condensed tomato soup, Ms. Dash Tomato Basil, and Garlic, to make a Cheese Tortellini soup recipe incredibly 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. I am not kidding when I say it is now our family’s favorite soup.


  • Cream cheese should be at room temperature.
  • Before adding the cream cheese to the soup, place it in a small bowl with a cup of the hot broth from the crockpot.
  • Mix until the cream cheese dissolves.  


After you brown the sausage, add the cream cheese to the skillet with the meat.  Adding the cream cheese to the hot skillet will melt the cream cheese and makes a creamier soup.

    • Ruth,

      Thank you for letting me know you were having trouble viewing the Sausage Tortellini soup recipe. I just check it and did not see anything wrong with it. I am not sure what happened. Here is a direct link: //

      Let me know if you have any more problems with anything on my blog. I am excited you are going to make this Sausage Tortellini Soup. It is my favorite soup. I use ground Italian sausage mixed with all the seasoning for a great flavor. TIP: When you are adding the cream cheese in the soup, make sure it is room temperature. Mix it up in a bowl with a little of the hot broth from the soup. It mixes into the soup better.

      Many blessings and thank you for all your support!

  1. “this is the best soup I have ever had” very close to being my favorite. Making something better from the original version is good achievement 🙂 thank you for bringing this out for us.

  2. Hi, I just finished grating the carrots for this recipe, but then I noticed that you are using shredded carrots. Was it supposed to say shredded? Will it matter?


    • Kristen,

      Thank you for stopping by and leaving me a comment. We love this slow cooker Sausage Tortellini Soup. I actually made it yesterday for Sunday Lunch. I use the Ms. Dash Tomato Basil for the basil seasoning. If you have some basil, use it instead. I hope this helps.
      Thanks you again for visiting Recipes for our Daily Bread.

    • I have actually made this soup 4 or 5 times since my comment last December. It has become part of our regular rotation of winter fare. And actually, I have a pot on the stove right now! Truly excellent! Thank you for sharing…


  3. 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

  4. 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!

    • Jamie,

      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.

      • 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!

  5. 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.

    • Teresa,

      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.

  6. 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,

      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.

  7. 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.

    • Janine,

      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

  8. 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!! 🙂

    • Janine,

      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
