This was very good. I added quite a bit of black pepper and it was very flavorful. It made a complete meal. I will be making this again. It did take a little extra time to get it ready to eat. Took me about 25 minutes to get this in the crockpot, and another 15 minutes to cut up the zucchini and boil the tortellini and add to the soup before we ate it. It took about 45 minutes for the zucchini to cook in the soup also. Great recipe.

This recipe is an exact recipe from Donna-Marie Pyes published book from "The best family slow cooker recipes". I agree it is excellent but credit should be given to the cook.

This is fabulous and so simple. I used two chorizo sausages which I zapped in my food processor. Doubled the mushrooms to four cups and in place of the tomato sauce I used a whole tin of tomato soup. Also used beef stock and 'Ubaldi' Mersey Valley Vintage Club Cheddar Cheese filled ravioli. Very filling soup and a keeper for us.
