Now I have to be honest and admit that I don’t love to cook, but that is mostly because I don’t often have the time to spend in the kitchen, or the patience for following lengthy, ingredient intensive recipes. This is one of the reasons that when I do get the urge (and the time) to cook, I like making hearty, one-pot meals and soups. This type of all day slow cooking and simmering is the kind that makes your mouth water and your home smell simply delicious.
Since my family was home all together after New Year’s day and it was a rainy, chilly day, I decided that was the perfect day to make an Italian Sausage Creamy Tortellini Soup.
Even though the soup took about 5 hours to cook, it was so nice to not have to stand around and watch it since it was all done in the slow cooker. After the soup was finished cooking I served it right away into my fun polka dot bowls alongside of a crusty garlic bread, which my son was a fan of dipping into the soup. This was a meal that my whole family, including my 6-year-old daughter enjoyed (she can be a tough audience at times). There was even plenty enough soup left over for lunch the next day, which my husband was definitely a big fan of.
I think that this Italian Sausage Creamy Tortellini Soup will be a go to meal for my family and I this winter as it is easy to create, creamy without being too heavy, has lots of delicious flavors, and is definitely hearty enough to serve as stand alone meal.
Let me know what you think if you decide to warm up on a chilly winter day by making this soup.
