With the holidays around the corner and my family’s schedule filling up, I’m all for easy dinners, even better if they include my favorite seasonal ingredient, butternut squash. While squash can sometimes be a pain to cook, preparing it in the crock makes it so painless. Set it to cook in the morning, and when you come home after your busy day, all you need to do is puree the soup, add the cheese and the tortellini. The resulting soup is beyond luscious—creamy, cheesy and filled with big fall flavors.
To start, add all the ingredients except the tortellini and cheese, to your slow cooker. (You’ll find the exact list of ingredients below!) Cover and cook on low for four to six hours or high for two to four hours.
