Crockpot Tomato Basil Tortellini Soup

tomato basil with tortellini

One thing that I LOVE about using the crockpot is that I can set and forget it.  Even though most of the time that I use my crockpot I am home anyways, I just like using it as I can get some many things down around the house while it food is cooking in it.

While the soup was cooking in the crockpot, I was able to clean the whole house for a party that I’m having on Friday.  Later this week I’ll just have to do a quick sprucing up clean up.  The smell of the soup cooking was making me so hungry.  My roommate even commented on how she couldn’t wait to eat because it smelled so good.

I love the creaminess of the soup.  I normally make this soup without tortellini, but I decided to add them since I had them on hand.  I am very glad that I decided to try it out because I have fallen in love with the new version.
