A few notes before you get started on your Crockpot Sausage & Tortellini Soup:
- Once the soup is cooked, be sure to turn off the crockpot instead of leaving it set to warm. The tortellini will continue to cook if you leave it on, which could mean your soup gets overcooked.
- You don’t have to use frozen tortellini, but if you choose to use a refrigerated option know that the soup will cook a little bit faster.
- If you like your soup a little spicy, I recommend adding 2 tablespoons of red pepper flakes with the other seasonings at the beginning!
