Cheesy Tortellini Crockpot Soup

Cheesy Tortellini Crockpot Soup Ingredients

This recipe Cheesy Tortellini Crockpot Soup caught my eye on Pinterest. The pinner said this was “the BEST crockpot meal I’ve tried yet.”  That was enough to perk my ears up!

I’ve wanted an easy, go-to, just “throw it all together” vegetarian crockpot recipe, and this was just the thing. I was unable to find the original source of the recipe on Pinterest, but if I could I would thank the person who shared this awesome recipe.

I’ve made it twice in a few months, and it was a hit with my family. The flavor is really nice and the soup is filling and delicious.

Tortellini Crockpot Soup Closeup With Spoon

Even though it is not the lowest calorie meal, I take comfort in knowing it has a bunch of greens in it and a good bit of tomatoes. If I’m going to treat my family to a creamy & cheesy meal, I like to balance with a bunch of vegetables. I serve this with a big green salad and crunchy cracker sticks for dipping.

    trying it tonight, it looks great!! I’m also making a double batch. I only had regular petite diced tomatoes, so I added some Italian seasoning to the pot. I use the crock pot liners whenever I use my crockpot, I love them!! Just pick it up and through it out, no big mess to soak. I think I use my crockpot more now that I have fallen in love with these. To me they are worth the dollar or so they end up costing. If you haven’t tried them do so! I will check my soup soon and season it up as needed for our tastes. Thanks for the recipe, can’t wait to try it with added sausage or fire roasted tomatoes!

      I have made this several times and frozen the leftovers. (I usually double the recipe since I like to have it to thaw out for a quick meal after a long day). It froze, thawed, and reheated very nicely.

      I bought a timer (like you use for lights) and use that to start the recipes later. I have tried this recipe before and it is great. I put the fresh pasta in when I get home as I like it firmer.

      • nicole
        February 3, 2015 at 10:14 am

        People always suggest that to me but this suggestion leaves your food out at room temp until timer turns on. Not a good idea unless there is a crock pot that keeps food cold until timer goes on.

          You could use a Frozen ingredient or two and they would work like ice packs on the other ingredients until the timer kicks on.

      I used half chicken broth (all I had at the time) and 2 cups roasted red pepper and tomato soup from trader Joe’s and it came out DIVINE!!!

      I think adding some tomato soup instead would make it more robust if you didn’t want to use broth.

    • AmyNewNostalgia
      January 15, 2015 at 9:21 am

      Yes, I would think so. If you need the chicken to cook faster, cut it smaller.

    • Amy
      July 28, 2015 at 4:51 pm

      I have made this dish with chicken. To cut back on the bacteria by adding raw chicken in the crockpot with other ingredients, I cooked my chicken in a skillet with olive oil and seasoned with salt, pepper and parsley. Once it was just about fully cooked I added it to the crockpot and let everything cook together except the pasta. That was added the last 30 mins of cooking time.

    I do this recipe on the stove in a Dutch oven. When the tortellini are cooked the meal is ready. But I always add 2 things of ground regular cooked sausage. My family believes we always should have meat with a meal so I incorporate it in the same pot. I also sauté an onion in the sausage and add baby ports Bella mushrooms. My family loves this meal.

    Was a HIT!! I made this for a soup party yesterday. Party started at 3pm I started soup at 9 am. I used 2 boxes of veg broth (8 cups) I stired soup a lot to help soften cream cheese which does look flakey for awhile so after 3 hrs I switched slow cooker to high, after 2 hrs on high cream cheese started to get creamier looking. For the last hour I put in a 1lb and a half of tortellini and switched slow cooker back to low. I kept all other ingredients the same as listed. Everyone enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing!!

    Delish! I used fat free cream cheese and it blended well. No white chunks. This dish sort of reminds me of a creamy tomato soup with tortellini. Id recommend adding crumbled bacon on top if you have a meat and potatos man like I have.

  • Anonymous

    • AmyNewNostalgia

    I made this last week was really good I added some sausage to it . It was on the sweeter side with all the cream cheess so the sausage help ballence it out in my option . It made a lot so I froze about half of it to have again this week and yes I would defiantly recomend adding thre pasta at the end .

      November 12, 2014 at 2:44 pm

      i made this successfully before and it was so good it was requested again, so im making it tomorrow. i used a regular block of cream cheese and stirred the heck out of it before serving. beforehand it was lumpy. afterward it mostly all integrated into the soup. is your crockpot newer? maybe its not getting hot enough? try letting the cream cheese get to room temp and putting it in in smaller bits. definitely not a fail recipe though!

  • Katie

Yes, if you like your tortellini more defined,then put it in the last hour or so along with the fresh spinach and cooked chicken strips but you can also use spicy sausage!!!! I serve it with thick garlic bread and it is always a hit!!!

I used my hand blender to blend the tomatoes garlic and cc halfway through the day. 4. Added chopped spinach and 1 bag meat 1 bag cheese tortellini one hour at the end. Very yummy

    • Maria H
      February 16, 2015 at 5:51 pm

    I am making this now (an hour left to go – just threw the tortellini in) and it doesn’t look anything like the picture. The cream cheese kind of separated so the broth looks like it has white flakes floating it instead of all mixed in and creamy. Did I do something wrong??

    • AmyNewNostalgia
      September 28, 2014 at 5:10 pm

      Hmm..try using a whisk to stir in the what specks. Is the soup hot enough? It should melt in. I wonder if cream cheese brand has anything to do with it. I’m sure some add different ingredients to their cream cheese. I hope it turns out!

    • Kelley
      September 30, 2014 at 10:42 am

      If you use low-fat or fat free cream cheese, it tends to not melt as well and incorporate into broth.

        September 30, 2014 at 7:26 pm

        Thanks guys! Once the tortellini cooked and I mixed it all up it blended a lot better. It was DELICIOUS! Though I feel like next time I will use chicken broth instead in veggie. I ended up adding more salt and garlic to it so it all worked out. Made great left overs too. Oh, and I used meat torts instead of cheese. =)

    I made this tonight and added half of a medium size bag of baby spinach and cut it up some before adding it in. I also added Italian sausage raw, 1/2 tsp of garlic salt, a couple light shakes of crushed red pepper, and added the tortellini at the end on low for an hour. I love this recipe and will definitely be making it again.

    Looks yummy but I have two questions:
    First, love the idea of adding sausage. Would you put it in cooked or raw?
    Second, my husband isn’t a huge fan of creamy sauces. Do you think we could do this without the cream cheese and have it be more of a tomato based broth?

    • ELiza
      October 21, 2014 at 8:51 pm

      I just made this. Since my roommate does not like tomatoes, I used tomato puree and I added some Italian sausage (cooked). I also used 5 cups of chicken broth and added some garlic.

      I left it on high for 4 hrs and it was perfect.

      Next time I will wait to add the tortellini, it was a bit soft for my taste.

    Very delicious! My only suggestion would be to wait to put in the tortellini. Mine got very mushy. Next time I make it, I’m going to put all ingredients in crockpot and not put tortellini in until there’s 1 hour left. I like my tortellini al dente.
    Thanks for the recipe!

    Do you drain the tomatoes first? Or, do you all the while can, liquid and all?

      No, don’t drain. Add entire contents of can.

    I’d love to add chicken. What do you think? Should I brown it first or just do raw chunks?

      Adding chunks of chicken breast would be fine,just let it cook through.

    I, like Meghan above, would love to know if this can be prepared and frozen ahead of time?

      I’m not sure. The tortellini are pretty fragile, I’m afraid freezing and defrosting would make them mush. Let me know if you try it!

    I like my soup thicker so I added tomato paste but after tasting it soon before it was done, it was rather bland for my taste. I had to add seasoning salt, garlic and onion powder.

    I made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious! My only complaint is that the Tortellini was a little on the mushy side. Has anyone else had this problem? If so is there anything I can do different to prevent this? otherwise we really love this recipe and would love to continue to making it. Thanks!

      I’m going to put the tortellinis in the last hour so they don’t get mushy.

        I think this is a great idea. Thanks for the suggestion.

      Amy, try adding the tortellini an hour after the rest of the ingredients, just as you would with veggies that cook more quickly. Hope this helps!

      another reader suggested adding the tortellini during the last bit of cooking. I’m going to try that. I found different brands of tortellini cook differently, so this is a great suggestion to avoid any mush.

    do you think i could use another pasta? its hard to find gluten free tortellini.

      Yes. Use whatever you have. The sauce has enough flavor that you won’t miss the cheese in the tortellini

    I made this last week and it was delicious! Rave reviews from my family (especially my 5 year old). The only thing I did different was add sweet Italian turkey sausage (I cut the sausages in chunks) right into the crockpot. Next time I’ll spray the sides of the crockpot with nonstick cooking spray because some of the tortellini did stick to the side. Great recipe, thanks for sharing!

    How many people is this serving? Trying it tonight but thinking a double batch might be what I need.

      I just made this tonight, and I doubled mine…my crockpot was FULL! I would say a single batch would serve 4-6.
