More About This Recipe
  • Cheesy, creamy tortellini soup will keep you warm on even the coldest winter weeknight. This is a terrific comfort soup that's fuss-free and easy to make. The end result: soup with a great flavor and perfect texture. Many creamy slow cooker soups turn out kind of yucky-looking because the dairy (milk, cream, cream cheese, etc.) curdles. The key here is adding these ingredients last. That way you’ll have a perfectly smooth and velvety texture. The base of this soup is simmered for a while first, creating a delicious foundation of flavor for the other ingredients. The fire-roasted tomatoes add a hint of smokiness, the spinach adds color, texture and nutrition, and those cheesy tortellini... well, they speak for themselves!
