Italian Meatball Tortellini Soup

Tammy T


This is so easy, so Italian and SO good! I made this to go with paninis. Makes a great lunch, brunch or dinner! My picky husband loves it. Crockpot cooking is great, makes my day so much easier. This recipe is wonderful because you don't have to start it early in the morning. Takes only a little over 2 hrs.

Note: I have used grated parmesan and shredded but I prefer the shaved in this soup. Best if you use Italian meatballs too. Enjoy!
