Crock Pot Tortellini and Spinach Soup - little prep time and an amazing result! { } A hearty soup filled with cheese tortellini, spinach, tomatoes, and lots of spices!!

It’s still Soup Weather, and I’m loving it!! I’m not a huge fan of really cold weather, but fortunately things haven’t been to bad here in Texas. When it’s even slightly cold we’re busting out the slippers and heavy jackets and officially declaring it soup season. πŸ˜‰

Because this cold weather doesn’t usually tend to stay long in Houston, you better believe we’re having soup at least once a week. We usually have the hubby’s favorites (chicken chili, potato, etc.) but this past week I decided to try a new recipe for Crock Pot Tortellini and Spinach Soup. It sounded amazing and any recipe that can be done in the Slow Cooker is automatically a good one for me. I don’t often have tons of time and like the recipes that can be dumped into the crock pot and tasting AMAZING 4 hours later.

You know what I’m saying?? πŸ˜‰


This recipe has to be one of the most flavorful and simple soup recipes I’ve ever tried. It is hearty and filled with cheesy tortellini, spinach, tomatoes and a wonderful blend of spices making it oh-so-delicious.

Hers is the easy recipe for you to try yourself…

Wow, this soup looks so wonderful. I’d love a cup right now! πŸ™‚

    Lil' Luna

    You’ll have to let me know if you give it a try. It is so simple and tasty! πŸ˜‰

I love this soup and the fact the you added spinach. Looks delicious!


What a delicious soup! Thanks for the recipe!!


This looks simple but yet I can see it being so good – printed it out and it is on my must try list! Thanks for sharing.

Kim {Pinspired Home}

This looks great, and I love how easy it is! One question: does the tortellini get mushy being in the crock so long? I make a similar recipe on the stove and the tortellini only cooks about 6 minutes total.


    I was gonna ask the same thing…I’m making this on the stove as we speak….I don’t have frozen Tortellini…have to use fresh and not real comfy with letting em cook for 4 hours.

      Lil' Luna

      So sorry – just now seeing this. How did it turn out? If it’s on the stove and you used fresh tortellini, I would probably only cook it for 45 – 60 minutes on medium heat. πŸ˜‰


    My tortellini was mushy putting it in the crock pot that long. πŸ™ I came to the comments to see if this soup is better prepared over the stove? Spinach doesn’t need that long to cook in either.


I’m looking for make-ahead meals that I can prep, freeze, then defrost overnight and dump in the crock pot. Do you think I could do that with this recipe? It looks delicious!

    Lil' Luna

    I have yet to try it with this recipe but if I do I’ll let you know. πŸ˜‰


This is very good. I made it today for supper. The only change I made was the addition of about a pound of cubed boneless chicken tenders. This is almost as easy as boiling water…lol

    Lil' Luna

    Isn’t is SO simple?! Glad you guys liked it, and thanks for stopping by!!


Can u use frozen spinach?

    Lil' Luna

    I definitely recommend fresh spinach but frozen works too. πŸ˜‰

Jenetta Penner

Oh, this looks perfect for the cold days. I can almost imagine myself curling up in bed with this hot soup and a good book.

    Lil' Luna

    It really is delicious… although I admit I’m a sucker for all Cheese Tortellini recipes. πŸ˜‰


What size crock-pot is this recipe for? I have a small 2 qt crock-pot and I want to make this soup this weekend!

    Lil' Luna

    Mine is a 6 quart… don’t think it would all fit in a 2 quart so you may want to half the recipe.


Thanks for the recipe – I love to keep the cheese tortellini stocked because it is such a quick easy meal – I like that this is a new variation for me on how to serve it.

    Lil' Luna

    I keep cheese tortellini in stock too!! I hope you like the soup. πŸ™‚


I made this soup today but my cream cheese did not melt and now I have lumps of cream cheese.. help any suggestions.


    I made this last week and it was a huge hit. Everyone wanted the recipe. I was having the same problem thinking the cheese was not melting all the way. So I cooked it a little longer and it all ended up melting just fine.


can I cook this with fresh garlic and cracked pepper?! I don’t have the dried mixture. Half teaspoon of each?!


Can the tortellini soup be frozen?


I made this soup for my boyfriend Joe and he loved it I also put mild sausage it and it was amazing
I’m deffentaly going to make this again!!!


One word – Delicious

Sarah Hogan

Can you make this with a fresh tomato? I hate to use canned tomatoes because of the sodium in it, but wasn’t sure if you needed the liquid and juices that come from canned tomatoes. I’ve made this recipe before and it’s delicious! Just trying to keep my sodium in check πŸ™‚

    Lil' Luna

    I haven’t tried that, but I’m sure that’d be fine. You may not have the same taste, since the ones in the recipe are the Italian diced ones, but maybe you could add a pinch of dried basil? I’d love to know how it tastes!


I add chicken to mine! I’ve had it without chicken, but I definitely like to eat meat! Also, I wait until the last hour of cooking to add the spinach so it doesn’t get too mushy! Such a good recipe, and very easy to make! It’s in my crock pot right now! πŸ™‚

    Lil' Luna

    Good ideas!! Chicken probably makes it more hearty! Thanks for sharing!

Miss Millie

This is an outstanding soup! The Church Ladies raved about it at a luncheon this past Saturday. Lil Luna, this one is a keeper. Many thanks for posting it.
Hugs….Miss Millie ^jj^

Sapan jahan

This sound fabulous!

    Lil' Luna

    It is!! Hope you give it a try!! Let me know what you think πŸ™‚ Thanks!


Oh love this soup . I am making this on Monday.

    Lil' Luna

    I love it too!! Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy!!


The flavor of this soup is amazing. Really tasty! I made mine on the stove top… was afraid the tortellini and the spinach would be mush after hours in the crock pot. Very easy and quick on the stove. Mix all the liquids and spices, add diced cheese, and simmer until the cheese is melted. About 30 minutes? I wanted to give all the spices time to blend in as well. (I also added a few cloves of minced garlic, because I put garlic in everything!) I used refrigerated tortellini, so they only took about 5 minutes in the boiling water. Added spinach and tortellini at the same time, and in 5 minutes, had a glorious soup my husband and I both enjoyed. This will be a frequent meal at our house!

    Lil' Luna

    I’m so happy that you like it. Thanks for giving it a try and letting me know!


    Thanks for posting this! I’ll be trying to do it on the stove with some Italian sausage.


I just got back from a potluck luncheon and this soup was a hit! I had requests for the recipe and was unsure whether I should share it because it made me look like a rock star and it’s so easy! πŸ˜‰

    Lil' Luna

    Haha…that makes me so happy!! Thank you for letting me know!


For Italian diced tomatoes, would you use the ones with basil and oregano?


I made this last night in crockpot. After 3 hours on high I stirred and cooled it a bit and put in fridge.(made ahead for next day) I had for lunch today and we will have for dinner tonight. I’m in love with this soup. I could eat it every day. Just the right amount of tomato and cheesy taste. So delicious and so easy. I literally just dumped everything in the crock pot and stirred a few times. I will definitely make this again and again. I noticed my frozen bag of tortellini was 19 oz rather than 16 oz. (which worked out super).

    Lil' Luna

    Isn’t it great!? We love it! Thank you for letting me know and for giving it a try! Makes me happy to hear!

Mindy L

Do you think adding mushrooms to this would change the flavor a whole lot?

    Lil' Luna

    It shouldn’t!! I just personally don’t like mushrooms, but I bet others would love it in there!! Let me know what you think!


I’m so excited to make this, it looks delicious and perfect for rainy weather! Do you know how many servings this makes?

    Lil' Luna

    It is perfect for a cold night!! I can’t say an exact serving, but it feeds our family of 7. Most of them are kids, so the servings aren’t big, so it just depends on how much you put in each bowl. Hope that helps!! Thank you and hope you like!

Carolyn Vinson

I made this tonight and it was wonderful! I only needed to cook it for 3 hours, though instead of the 4. The entire house smelled delightful while it was cooking. It tasted great too! Will be trying this again, most definitely!

    Lil' Luna

    Yay! Love to hear that! Thank you so much for giving it a try πŸ™‚


      How much dry spinach does it take? (5 or 10 oz.) Thanks.

        Lil' Luna

        It just depends on how much you like. I can’t think of the ounces off the top of my head, but the smaller bag would do. It really depends on your tastes. Hope that helps! Thank you!

Toni-Marie Bryan

The recipe looks wonderful! Is there anything you could recommend as a substitute for cream cheese?

    Lil' Luna

    You could try plain yogurt, cottage cheese, ricotta cheese, or half & half. Hope those help πŸ™‚ Good luck!!

Lisa M

I just wanted to add a comment and say – I have made this at least 15 times, even in the summer. We LOVE it. I have it bookmarked….. Im making it today

It really does make for a great meal that is very filling.

    Lil' Luna

    Thank you so much Lisa!!! We love it, too!! I’m so glad you like it and thank you for letting me know!


My son loved this soup and it helped him recover after he had the flu. Thanks for sharing this delicious soup and hope to follow others on your site.

Scott Williams

This spinach soup saved my sons life when he has the flu. He loved the taste and it helped him recover which is amazing because he is picky. Thanks for sharing and hope to try others here soon.

    Lil' Luna

    So, glad it helped him! I hope others try it too πŸ™‚ You won’t be disappointed! Thank you!


I am a big fan of spinach so I am definitely trying this soon.

    Lil' Luna

    I hope you do!! This recipe is so good! I’d love to know what you think!

Sandra Cobain

Wow, this one seems really delicious. I’ll definitely try preparing this for my kids. πŸ™‚


Why don’t you put the number of servings. That would be helpful.


Lovely recipe Kristyn,
keep going with the good work πŸ™‚

Looks incredible!


In crock now! I used kale instead of spinach because it likely will not get mushy. Also added diced onion, fresh garlic and mushrooms!! Not going to add the tortellini until last hour! Ill keep u posted

Rebecca Fishow

Looks great! DO you drain the tomatoes?


Looks like an easy and tasty recipe – pair it with a grilled cheese sandwich and that is perfect cold weather comfort food!

    Kristyn Merkley

    Totally!!! Can’t wait for those cooler temps! Thanks so much!

      Nancy Murphy

      I couldn’t get the cream cheese to melt enough so it would blend in. I added some water and cornstarch to see if that would help, I wonder if half and half might be better. Some tender onions and carrot would be a good addition. I think I would put the tortellini later. They started falling apart.

        Kristyn Merkley

        Thanks for giving it a try πŸ™‚ Yes, you could add anything you like. I am sorry about the cream cheese.


Is there a recommended serving size for this soup? I’m trying to figure out the calories:/ thank you.

Lil Petey

I’m looking forward to trying these beautiful soups. I have physical limitations but using my crockpot gives us nutritious meals and a minimal amount of prep.

    Kristyn Merkley

    Aren’t crock pots great!? I hope you get to try this one soon…it really is so yummy! Thank you so much!

Melissa Jackson

I have a silly question. In your recipe it states “1 bag of spinach” just how much is that in cups?

    Kristyn Merkley

    I can’t remember how many ounces it is. It really depends on how much you like spinach. There isn’t a wrong amount. It can be anywhere from 1-3 cups or more, if you want more πŸ™‚
