I love my crockpot / slow cooker! These babies sure come in handy and this recipe is my take on crockpot tortellini soup.
This isn’t a difficult recipe but I had my mishaps with it. Pureeing this in my blender was a lot of fun. (insert sarcasm here) Apparently I didn’t lock the lid or push it down far enough on my blender and it blew off along with a good portion of soup that splattered all over the wall and countertop. I wasn’t laughing at the time when it happened, but like all little mishaps in life, they become funnier the further away they get.
After all was said and done I had one bowl left. Left-overs don’t last long at my house. I thought I’d have some for the next day but my son got up in the middle of the night and inhaled it. His dad wasn’t very happy since I was saving that last bowl for him. You snooze, you lose.
This recipe was taste-tested by my crew (my family and neighbors) and it got a thumbs up so I’m sharing it with you.
Just a little helpful hint: You’re missing out on adding some yummy depth to your soups if you’re not saving those Parmesan or Romano cheese rinds. They freeze well. We just toss ours in a Ziplock® bag and into the freezer till we need them.
