Why I developed this Sausage Tortellini Soup Recipe?

Over thirteen years ago, we adopted our youngest daughter when she was four.  She did not speak English but, I quickly learned how much she loved pasta, especially Tortellini.  After adopting our two children, we ate pasta several times a week.  I wanted my daughter got something she would eat, but make sure she was getting some vegetables too. I spent the year developing pasta recipes full of vegetables everyone would love. You cannot get any healthier than spinach.  This Soup is so flavorful that you cannot even taste the spinach.  

Starfish Story

Have you ever heard the starfish story?  Where a man was walking on a beach tossing one starfish at a time back into the ocean trying to save them. A man approached the man picking up starfish and throwing them back into the sea.  He said, “You must be crazy.”  There were thousands of miles of beach with starfish on them.  How could you possibly make a difference?  The man picking up the starfish bent over and picked up another starfish and toss it into the ocean.  He said, “it sure made a difference in the life of that ONE.” 

My husband and I

Like the man who made a difference in the one starfish, my husband, Jerry, and I wanted to make a difference with adoption. After having three biological children, we adopted two kids over 13 years ago.  I remind myself on difficult days if my husband and I had not adopted our kids they might not have ever had a loving family to make a difference in their lives.  I know with lots of prayers and tears we are making a small difference through adoption.  

We are NOT all called to adopt but we are all called to look after orphans.

If I can encourage others to adopt or give money to help parents who cannot afford to adopt but want to, one more child’s life could change.  One more child could have a loving family, plus have a chance to know God loves them.

Show Hope Is Making A Huge Difference In Orphan Care

 Supporting ShowHope is an excellent way to look after orphans. 

SHOWHOPE and MARY Beth Chapman

In 2003, Mary Beth and Steven Curtis Chapman founded Show Hope after having their own eyes and hearts opened to the global orphan crisis.

Since then, Show Hope has worked to holistically approach orphan care, helping children in four key areas:

  • Adoption Aid
  • Care Centers
  • Pre+Post Adoption Support
  • Student Initiatives

We attended Show Hope Fellowship Weekend this past weekend. We got to witness some amazing families sharing their adoption stories. ShowHope had a part in bringing these orphans together with their forever families.

ShowHope Was Started By Steven Curtis And Mary Beth Chapman

If you know anything about Christian music, you have already heard of the Chapmans.  You could not even count all the awards he has won for his music.  Being a fan of Steven is how I found ShowHope.  I am so very thankful I did.  Steven and Mary Beth Chapman are the most fun, friendly down to earth people you will ever meet. Plus, they have the BIGGEST heart when it comes to helping orphans.  

The Chapman’s are not only fun but they dedicate their lives to making a difference in the lives of orphans. 

As you can see in the picture below of me taking a picture with Emily Champman Richards, Executive Director of ShowHope, and the picture being photobombed by Steven Curtis Champman that they are lots of fun. I had no idea he was behind us.

NOW, On To The Fabulous Slow Cooker Sausage Tortellini Soup

First Step: Sausage Tortellini Soup Crockpot

  • Brown and drain the sausage. Keep the browned sausage in the skillet.
  • Be sure to use Italian sausage.  If you like your food a little spicy like my family does, try Italian Hot sausage for even more flavor. 

Second Step: Cream Cheese

  • Add the cream cheese plus a half cup of chicken broth to the skillet of sausage and mix until creamy.
  • Consequently, If the cream cheese is not super soft, you may need to add additional chicken broth.

Third Step: Add Sausage Tortellini Soup Mix to Crockpot

  • Add the brown sausage and melted cream cheese to the slow cooker.
  • Add the chicken broth, tomato sauce, grated carrots, Italian seasoning, Mrs. Dash Basil, and granulated garlic.

SOUP TIPS

1. With soup, it is easy to “Cook Once, Eat Twice” (or three times!). Soup is the perfect freezer food, which means leftovers won’t go to waste. Soup will keep in the freezer for a couple of months, so don’t hesitate to whip up extra-large batches to enjoy now – and later.

2. Freeze leftover soup in muffin tins for easy-to-transport single-serve lunch portions.

3. Allow soup to cool overnight in the refrigerator before freezing. Putting hot soup into your freezer can briefly increase the internal temperature of your freezer, which could negatively impact your already frozen items.

4. Don’t add cold milk or cream straight from the refrigerator to your soups while cooking. To prevent curdling, warm the milk and cream up before adding to the simmering soup.

5. Mirepoix is a combination of diced carrots, celery and onion used to add flavor to soups, stocks and broths. The smaller the pieces are cut, the faster they will release their flavor.

6. When making soup, “sweat” aromatics, like onions or garlic, first. Simply sauté these ingredients in a little olive oil or butter until they are soft. This will release their flavors and enhance the final taste of your recipe.

7. Give your soup a chance to cool a bit before adding final seasoning. When soup is boiling hot, it is difficult to tell whether or not it actually needs more salt or other seasonings.

This flavorful Italian Sausage Tortellini Soup includes ground Italian sausage, spinach, carrots, condensed tomato soup, chicken broth, cream cheese, Ms. Dash Tomato Basil, Italian seasoning, granulated garlic, plus Cheese Tortellini.
