I love Sausage Tortellini Soup. I have an instant pot recipe for this as well, but I wanted to use up some sausage I had cooked and use my new crockpot, so I threw this one together. This is an easy recipe, as most crockpot recipes are. You know the usual, dump in and go about your day, come back and enjoy. Below I have steps on how I made this deliciously easy soup and the full recipe will be at the bottom.
List of Ingredients
- Ground Sausage
- Vegetable Broth
- Oregano Leaves
- Tortellini Noodles
- Grated Parmesan
How Do I Make This?
Leave it to the crockpot to do most of the work for you. However, the instant pot is handy in this sense because you can brown your meat and if you wanted, your vegetables as well. But because this is a crockpot recipe, you will have to brown your meat in a separate pan and than add into your crockpot once browned.
While your meat is browning, dice up your onions and tomatoes. You could cheat and use canned tomatoes, but I truly prefer fresh soups so I use fresh tomatoes. Add those into your crockpot along with your browned sausage. Add in a dollop of minced garlic and your seasonings, and lastly, add in your vegetable broth.
Set your crockpot on low for 6 hours. Once the 6 hours is up, come back and than finish up by adding the remaining ingredients. Such as your milk, spinach. grated parmesan and tortellini. Now I cheated and boiled my tortellini but I believe you could add these in within the last hour – to half hour of your cook time and they should cook just fine. I didn’t have time, so I boiled mine and added them in last.
Serve up yourself a fine bowl of this delicious soup. This is definitely one of those soups that everyone raves about and loves. There are plenty of different ways to make this soup, but this is how I make mine.
