Crock Pot Creamy Tomato and Tortellini Soup
Posted January 12, 2014 by Prairie Wife -
I was inspired to make this recipe last year when I was looking on Pinterest for a vegetarian meal to make for a friend. The original recipe was full of ingredients that I didn’t have in my pantry, or didn’t like. So, I made up my own and it turned out wonderful. Frankly I was surprised that it was such a hit around here, because it doesn’t have any meat! It’s rich, flavorful and filling. I especially love that I can throw it in the crock pot in the morning (it just takes two seconds) and be greeted by the warm zesty smell of soup when I get home from getting the kids from school. Let me know what you add to the recipe to make it your own!
