- Add in the carrots, celery, diced tomatoes, and the broth.

Can you freeze tortellini soup?
Choosing to freeze your leftover soup is normally a great idea when it comes to non-cream based soup like this sausage tortellini soup recipe, but unfortunately, this soup won’t do well with freezing. After thawing the soup, the noodles will become mushy.
If you still want to freeze your soup, remove all of the tortellini and freeze it without the pasta. Add in a new batch of tortellini when you reheat the leftovers and you should be fine.
