Slow cooker soups are kind of my jam. I’m already busting out the crockpot three to four times a week and soups literally sound good to me every single day – year round. When official soup season rolls around I go a little crazy.

This is a little twist on my favorite slow cooker tomato basil parmesan soup which normally doesn’t call for tortellini, but I’ve been on a pasta-in-soup kick for a bit now and this was bound to happen. Thank heaven it did because this soup….. seriously no words.

It is creamy and cheesy and tomato-y, and has the perfect broth-to-pasta ratio. On top of all that, it’s in the slow cooker and your house will be smelling like a soup n’ sandwich shop by the end of the day. If they made a candle that could make my house smell this heavenly I would absolutely buy ten of them, but until they come out with an Autumn Creamy Tomato Basil Soup scented candle I’ll be making this deliciousness on the weekly to get my fix.

Ingredients

  • 2 15-ounce cans diced tomatoes
  • 1 10-ounce can tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 medium white onion, diced
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 2 cups shredded parmesan cheese

Roux

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 cup heavy cream OR half & half
  • 3 cups frozen tortellini (thawed)

Instructions

  • Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, and next 7 ingredients (through broth) to a slow cooker/crockpot. Cover and cook for 2 hours on high or 4-8 hours on low. (If you are home, give it a stir every now and then and scrape down the sides)
  • About 30-40 minutes before serving transfer soup to a blender or food processor and puree until smooth, then return to crock pot.

I don’t have a slow cooker/fast pot. is there anything in the menu that needs to be changed? can I just use a large pot. what about the timing of it all?

    Simmer it all for about 30 minutes, stir in tortellini the last 5 minutes!

      Thanks! Recently retired and looking forward to trying more of your meals. I made your chicken with sundried tomatoes which was very good.

Just made this. Yum! Its officially our new favorite soup for fall. You were absolutely right about it being the perfect broth to pasta ratio. I cant get enough.

    Great job, Nita! Thanks for your feedback!

Hi! is it really a tabLespoon of salt, and Not a teaspoon? That seems like a lot?
