Slow Cooker Pizza Soup!

Thursday, September 26, 2013

I have absolutely no Italian heritage to speak of in my family but with the way I love pizza I still think I have to have a family member somewhere down the line who is 100% Italian. So it's no surprise, that when I saw a recipe on Pinterest for pizza soup, I jumped at the chance to make it for my Six Soups September series! So, without further ado, I present you with: Pizza Soup!

Slow Cooker Pizza Soup Recipe from It's Always Ruetten

This spicy soup can be made to suit the taste buds of any pizza lover!

3 hot (or mild) Italian sausages, removed from the casing (no need to pre-cook)
1 package pepperoni
3 bell peppers (whatever colors are the least expensive), chopped into one inch chunks
1 small can sliced black olives, drained
2 jars of pasta sauce (I used the big cans of Hunt's in garlic and traditional flavors)
2 cans of fat-free, low sodium chicken broth
1 large can of crushed tomatoes (or canned whole tomatoes that you crush)
2 tablespoons dried Italian seasoning
5 cloves garlic, chopped
Salt and pepper
1 package tortellini, cooked according to the directions on the package
Mozzarella cheese, shredded 

1. Prepare all of your ingredients, except the tortellini and mozzarella cheese, and dump them (carefully) into a slow cooker.
2. Cook on low 7-8 hours.
3. In the last 30 minutes, prepare the tortellini and drain.

To Serve:
Spoon tortellini's into the bottom of a bowl, top with a ladle (or two) of the soup, sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. I had mine with garlic bread and it was fantastic!
