Slow Cooker Creamy Tomato Basil Tortellini Soup

I'm trying to incorporate more slow cooker recipes into my repertoire. This is definitely one of those recipes where you get to set it, come back to it a couple hours later and it's dinner and a few lunches for the week. It's a yummy tomato-based vegetable soup with tortellini.

Recipe from Cooking Classy.

-3-4 carrots, diced
-1 yellow onion, diced
-3-4 teaspoons minced garlic
-3 (28 oz) cans whole tomatoes
-4 cups vegetable broth
-1/3 cup chopped fresh basil
-1 tablespoon sugar
-salt and pepper
-16-19 ounces frozen tortellini
-3/4 cup heavy cream

In a large crock pot, add the carrots, onion, garlic, tomatoes, broth, basil, sugar, salt and pepper, and stir. Set the crock pot to high for 3 1/2 hours or low for 6.

After the cook time has passed, blend the soup using an immersion blender. Add the tortellini and cook on high for another twenty minutes or so. Turn the heat down to a warm, stir in the cream, and it's ready to serve. Garnish with additional basil or shredded cheese. The classic flavor of the soup is really outstanding, and the tortellini add an element of fun, an overall great soup.
