It’s still winter, so all I want on these cold nights is a big bowl of something hot, filling and comforting. Tomato soup is a classic. BUT, I wanted to give it some extra “umph!” and amp it up! Cooking it in the slow cooker for hours makes it super easy to just throw together and forget about it all day.

Adding the bold flavor of goat cheese and the heartiness of cheese tortellini. makes it perfect for a weeknight dinner or easily reheated for lunches during the week! When I finally tasted this yummy concoction, I went nuts! This is by far the best soup I have ever made!!

Slow Cooker Tomato Soup with Tortellini and Goat Cheese, a filling creamy soup slow cooked for hours and full of flavor!
Ingredients
  • 1 28 oz can peeled tomatoes (I suggest getting the San Marzano tomatoes when possible!)
  • 14 oz crushed tomatoes
  • 2 Tbls Italian Herb Paste (The kind in the grocery section, or fresh basil)
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 4 clove garlic, smashed
  • 4 Cups (32 oz box) chicken stock
  • 2 Cups half and half, divided
  • 3 Tbls butter
  • ¼ Cup all purpose flour
  • 2 oz goat cheese, plus more for garnish
  • 9 oz fresh tortellini (I used cheese, use what you like!)
Instructions
  1. Place the first six ingredients, through to the chicken stock in your slow cooker. Add 1 Cup of the half and half. Stir to combine, place on lid and turn on high heat for 2-4 hours (4-8 hours on low). If you are home while this is cooking, stir every 30 minutes or so.
  2. to 45 minutes before serving, use an immersion blender, blend until smooth.
  3. In a medium sized skillet, melt the butter over medium heat and add in the flour. Whisk until there are no lumps and continue to cook while whisking for 2 minutes. Slowly, pour in the remaining half and half while whisking. Let come to a simmer while continuing to whisk. Place into the slow cooker and stir to combine. Add in the goat cheese and tortellini, stir to combine and cook for an additional 30 minutes, until the tortellini are cooked through and the cheese has melted.
  4. Serve with more goat cheese as a garnish if desired, enjoy!

    This sounds so good for a cold night. Especially the next several nights with temps in the negatives. Thanks for sharing over at the Snickerdoodle Sunday.
