A crockpot lasagna soup made with cheese-filled tortellini. This soup is simple to make, tastes just like lasagna in soup form, and is a sure crowd pleaser!
This soup though. Best soup I’ve ever had – hands down. I guess I have to amend that statement just a bit though…because if you are looking for a super healthy and light soup, this sweet potato + quinoa one is one of my favorites. But as far as a complete comfort meal, easy to make, super cheesy, and totally flavorful soup goes – this is the soup.
Not that this soup is necessarily unhealthy, just the amounts of cheese I stir in mine may just be a little unhealthy. Although, I’m sure I put more cheese in my soup than the average

Other than that, you’ve got lots and lots of tomatoes and tomato-ey sauces, some beef broth, lots of spices. You know, these are all good for you! And for the actual beef, I used extra lean ground beef, but I’m sure ground turkey would be great in this too. However, ground beef just screams lasagna to me since I always put that in our lasagna. BUT — the best part of this soup in my opinion? It’s the tortellini. Tortellini is one of the greatest foods ever made, I’m convinced. And in this soup it is divine. It cooks perfectly in the slow cooker and it’s like having an ultra chees-y lasagna in every bite. Because the cheese is IN the pasta. Genius.
And then I mix lots of extra cheese in the soup. You know, just for good measure.
