Creamy Tortellini Soup Recipe

Creamy Tortellini Soup Recipe

I love making soup for my family, especially during the colder months of the year. Soup is easy to make and warms me up. I especially like making soup in my slow cooker, which allows me to keep the soup warm all day from lunch to dinner. I recently saw a recipe for creamy slow cooker tortellini soup in my Facebook feed. I modified the recipe to suit the tastes of my family and came up with a creamy and delicious soup recipe that was a hit with the whole family!
