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

  • 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

  • Start with room temperature 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.
  • Mix until the cream cheese dissolves.

Third Step: Add Sausage Tortellini Soup Mix to Slow Cooker

  • 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.
  • Most importantly, DO NOT add the tortellini and spinach.

  1. I am having the same issue. This link just takes me to this page with the comments but no recipe. Please help. My son can’t have tomatoes and it looks like your soup isn’t full of tomatoes like most of the tortellini sausage soups. Thanks!

  2. 4 stars
    “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.

  3. 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?

    Thanks!

    • 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.
      Blessings,

      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…

  4. 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

  5. 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.
      Blessings,
      Diane

      • 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!

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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

  9. 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
