Remember how last week is was really hot and in the 90’s and I wished that fall weather would come? Well it came yesterday and got down to 54 degrees. The heater even kicked on last night. We have this cold that is going through our family and now I am the one that has it. So now I am not too sure I am quite ready for this cold weather. 😉

One thing that I love about fall though is soup! Even though I could eat soup all year long, I get even more excited to make it when the cold weather starts to come. And all I felt like this week was a comforting bowl of soup. Since this Slow Cooker Chicken Tortellini Soup went crazy last year, I knew that a creamy version had to make its debut!

I know that your family is going to love this delicious and creamy soup just as much as we did!

    There were no tortellini anywhere on island, so I rinsed the pasta sauce off a can of mini ravioli. Used 3 boneless chicken thighs and cut them up at the beginning. Also a bit of parmesan to the cream/flour mix.

  2. Just tried this soup. I didn’t have the time to slow cook it but I wanted to try it anyway. I pressure cooked the chicken in the broth then cooked the carrots while shredding the chicken. It all turned out very nicely. Delicious soup! Thanks again for another fantastic recipe.

  3. To make as a make ahead freezer meal can I freeze”part one” separate from “part two” and doyou think that freezing the milk/cream/flour together is possible?

  4. I have the same question as Cheryl. What kind of tortellini do I use in this? It looks delicious! I feel like the refrigerated would fall apart?

      1. I only have frozen tortellini. How would I do those? Thaw in the fridge 1st? Or put in the crockpot early?

  5. Hi, Alyssa! This looks yummy. Perfect for the colder weather, when it comes back to stay. Question about the tortellini: dry? refrigerated? frozen? Thanks!
