Spinach + Tortellini = Win!

It’s still Soup Weather, and I’m loving it!!

We love to have soup especially on a cold day and always have our cheesy potato soup, white chicken chili or tomato basil on rotation.

Recently though, we tried a tortellini soup that has become a new favorite!

Best part is that you literally dump everything in the slow cooker and you’re set!! I don’t often have tons of time and like the recipes that can be dumped into the slow cooker and taste AMAZING 4 hours later.

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.

How to Make Spinach Tortellini Soup

This recipe is as easy as they come!!

COMBINE + COOK. Place all ingredients, minus the tortellini, in the slow cooker. Make sure cream cheese is cut up in 1 inch cubes before placing in crock pot. Cook on HIGH for 2-3 hours stirring occasionally.

TORTELLINI. Add tortellini and continue cooking on HIGH for an additional hour! That’s it!! In fact, some times we just add the tortellini when we add all the ingredients at the beginning (especially if it’s frozen) which makes it even easier.

Note: If your tortellini is frozen you may need to throw it in the slow cooker sooner.

Tips + Storing Info

We used three cheese tortellini for this recipe, but you could also use cheese & spinach tortellini or cheese & mushroom tortellini. Each will give a slightly different flavor to the soup. You can also use tri colored tortellini for a visual variation.

Add protein such as chicken, sausage or ground beef (already cooked).

For stove top directions:

  1. Add tomatoes, broth, spinach, and seasonings to a cooking pot. Over medium low heat bring it to a light bubble stirring occasionally. This will take about 10 minutes. If the soup reaches a rolling boil, then reduce the heat. 
  2. Reduce the soup to a simmer and add the tortellini. Place the softened cream cheese in 1 inch pieces over the top of the soup.
  3. Allow the tortellini to cook through while the cream cheese melts. Frozen tortellini will take a bit longer.
  4. Once tortellini is cooked and cream cheese has melted stir the soup to combine.

STORE leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. Be aware that the pasta may continue to absorb the liquid. REHEAT in the microwave or the stovetop. I do not recommend freezing leftovers.

    We love this soup in our house, easy to make and doesn’t take too long to put together. I usually have all the ingredients in the house too, which makes it great to throw together for a weeknight meal!

      This is really tasty. I had ravioli to use up so I used those in place of tortellini. I also added some green beans just to up the veggie count. I did have trouble getting the cream cheese to completely blend in. Most of it did but the soup was left with a residue of tiny cream cheese balls. So I carefully scooped those and some broth out and blended it to get a smoother consistency. My kids both liked it so I guess it stays on the list!

      1. Thanks for sharing what you did. Glad to hear that the soup was a hit for your family!

    This soup is outstanding!!! Oh man, I made this last night and invited my friend over to eat. And she brought her husband, and this did not disappoint…DELICIOUS!!!! Will definitely be making this again!!!

    1. Yay! Thank you so much for your kind words. I’m so glad you (and your friends) enjoyed the soup!

    2. In the video you put the tortellini in the beginning with everything, but In the recepie it says to wait and put them in the last hour. Which is correct? Also can I sub some of the chicken broth, maybe 2 cups, with heavy cream?

      1. Either one! Some times we just add the tortellini when we add all the ingredients at the beginning (especially if it’s frozen) which makes it even easier. If you are using frozen tortellini, you may want to do that. If using fresh, then you could do either. And yes, you could use heavy cream for 2 cups of the broth. It would just make it more of a creamy soup!

    3. I am not sure what went wrong but I found this to be bland and off-putting. I tried to salvage it with parm, italian spices, better than bullion and it went straight into the trash.

    Made this during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend for family from out of town. They loved it!!! It was an easy delicious meal for a crowd!

    This soup was delicious. However it didn’t look like the one pictured above. I cut the cream cheese into cubes and put them in the crock pot in the order of the ingredients listed, but it did not melt. I had to smash it against the side of the pot as I stirred the soup. It just doesn’t look very appealing.
    But it was delicious!
    Thank you.

    1. I’m so sorry the recipe didn’t look as expected. Thanks so much for trying it though and I’m glad it was delicious!

  9. 3 stars
    Makes about 10 servings. Found the color off-putting, the spinach slimy, the cream cheese never fully dissolves, and the spice amounts way too small.

    1. I’m so sorry the recipe didn’t turn out as you would have liked. Thanks so much for trying it though!

    I’m made this for the second time tonight. It’s absolutely delicious! I typically don’t like cooked tomatoes OR spinach, but it’s just fantastic in this soup. My picky fiancée loved it as well so this is going to be a go-to dinner for sure! The only problem was that both times my cream cheese didn’t melt down completely, so there were still some little clumps in there after trying to break it down as much as possible. Any advice on how to get it smoother for next time?

    1. Yay!! I’m so happy to hear you both enjoyed the soup. I always cut my cream cheese up into 1 inch cubes. You could also make sure that it is softened before adding it to the pot as well. Once the soup is cooked, you could also use a whisk to combine it well with the rest of the soup.
