Creamy Tortellini Soup

It is soup season! Is there anything in the world that smells better slow cooking in your kitchen all day than a creamy soup? This Creamy Tortellini Soup smelled absolutely delicious while it cooked and it tasted even better. It is a breeze to make and it can easily be turned into a vegetarian soup. Omit the sausage from the recipe and cook the onion and garlic in 3 tablespoons of olive oil instead. The sausage, though. THE SAUSAGE. Goodness gracious, you would not even believe the flavor it adds to this already-dreamy soup.

How do you make creamy tortellini soup?

This recipe calls for 1 cup of heavy cream, but it doesn’t get added until the soup has done the majority of its cooking. That cup of cream turns the soup into a creamy delight! You may replace the heavy cream with half and half or even milk (preferably whole), if desired.
