Seven Vegetable Tortellini Soup (in a Slow Cooker)

Cold. Cold. Cold.  It was 4 degrees outside today and comfort food was the perfect solution to warm our spirits.  This soup has 7 different vegetables and is healthy and delicious! 

Its also a fun soup for our little one to help me make.  I would cut up the vegetables then put them on the plate which he added to the bowl.  Enjoy making this soup and keep in mind you can add or delete vegetables to make it your own.
