Okay y’all, before I share this recipe – just one thing! I didn’t call this soup OR bake (casserole) because I was making soup when my daughter decided to dump the rest of the fresh tortellini in. Uhm, because she loves it and she didn’t want soup *lol* she wanted ALL the tortellini she could have. Funny girl! So, if you want to make soup, just don’t add a ton of tortellini. And then, voila, you’ll have soup. If you want to do it the bake way – it’s just more tortellini and then of course, as we like it: more cheese! Both ways are super easy – and won’t mess you up. As in there are no *oops* I should have added this to have this or that for that. It still uses the same ingredients, you just add more … or less. So dig in and enjoy as it is super yummy! And yes, you can make this in your pressure cooker. That’s why I did my paste in the slow cooker [haha] as I’m sort of use to doing this in the power pressure cooker and I wasn’t even thinking. I rarely do think or so I’ve been told. That’s what makes life fun – or at least mine! Anyway, it all worked out – heck, you can do your paste on the stove top or even heat it up in the microwave if you want. This worked for me – just heating the paste up in the slow cooker on high heat and then turning it down. You’re choice; just don’t forget it (the paste is what I’m referring to).
