Tortellini Soup in the crockpot is an easy dinner that is full of flavor. Store-bought tortellini simmers with sausage, tomatoes, and spinach in a delicious broth thickened with cream cheese. It’s hearty and filling, especially with some crusty bread on the side.

The crockpot makes cooking so much easier, and one of my favorites things to make in it is homemade soup. The recipe I’m sharing today is a really simple sausage tortellini soup that is easy to prep, and then you just leave it to simmer.

We love this slow cooker tortellini soup on chilly days. It’s comforting and filling all on its own, or you can serve it with a salad and bread on the side.

How to Make Tortellini Soup with Chicken Broth

Place the cooked sausage, garlic, tomatoes, Italian seasoning, chicken broth, and cream cheese in the crockpot. Cook on low for four to five hours. 

One an hour, whisk the soup to the cream cheese melts evenly into the broth.

When there are 30 minutes of cooking time left, add the frozen tortellini and spinach and stir. Cover the crockpot and let the soup simmer for the rest of the time.

When the cooking time is up, stir the soup and give it a taste. Add salt and pepper to taste, and then stir again before serving. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over each serving.

Recipe FAQs

What kind of tortellini can you use? You can use any flavor you like – we like cheese tortellini, but other types would be good, too. Just make sure to use frozen tortellini and not the refrigerated kind.

Can you use frozen spinach? Yes, but you will only need to use about a quarter of a box or approximately 2 to 3 ounces. 

How long does spinach tortellini soup last? It will last for a few days in the fridge, but the pasta will absorb the broth, so it won’t be very soupy. Because of this, I think it’s best the day it’s made.

What to Serve with Tortellini Soup

To make it a complete meal, try adding some of these sides:

  • Try our easy Garlic Knots – they are great for dunking in the soup.
  • Add a salad like our Spinach Salad, Caesar Salad, or Greek Salad.
  • Keep it simple, and just add slices of Italian or French Bread.

The next time you’re craving a hearty soup with pasta, you should give this crockpot tortellini soup a try. It’s so easy and has the best creamy broth – we love the flavors and hope you do, too!
