Can you freeze sausage tortellini soup?

Yes, but there is a catch.  In order to freeze the soup you cannot add the tortellini in with it.  So what you do is make the soup,(leaving the tortellini out and uncooked) allow it to cool completely and place it in an airtight container or ziplock bag, making sure all the air is out.

When you are ready to eat the soup, simply unthaw the container or ziplock bag in the refrigerator.   Place the soup in a saucepan over medium high heat and let simmer. Cook refrigerated tortellini according to package directions and add to soup, stirring to combine.

Soup recipes make great freezer meals that can be taken out the night before to thaw so they are ready to go the next day so all you have to do is heat them up.
