Slow Cooker Tortellini and Sausage Soup

 Continuing with this week’s theme of “I Just Don’t Have Enough Time in the Day, so Let’s Make Something Easy”, I offer you this crazy good, super simple Crock Pot meal.  It’s another Pinterest find, and the original recipe is over at the blog Little Fellows.  I’ve tweaked the recipe just a bit, but didn’t touch how simple it is.  My family loved it, and I hope yours does too.

I started by browning up a pound of Italian turkey sausage.  You could use whatever sausage sounds good to you.  I went with turkey to try and lighten things up a bit.

As the turkey was browning, I got together the rest of my ingredients.

Once the turkey sausage was browned, I drained it and added it to my slow cooker, along with all of the other ingredients.

I gave it a good stir, set the cooker to LOW, and let it cook for about five hours.

I stirred it a couple of times during the cooking process, but other than that, it was hands off.  When it was time for dinner, I had a huge pot of delicious, hearty soup in front of me.

 I served it up with some crusty bread and a salad, and we were good to go!

How’s that for easy?
