CROCKPOT SAUSAGE TORTELLINI

During our snowy weekend I put our crockpot to good use. I don't know if I've mentioned it before, but I LOVE MY CROCKPOT. Seriously, it's great.

One of the things I made...I mean my crockpot made is this Sausage Tortelloni recipe! I made it a few weeks ago and we both loved it so I thought it would be a good recipe for a snow day.


Ingredients:
- l lb of sausage or ground beef (I used ground beef)
- 20 oz Buitoni Frozen Three-Cheese Tortellini (I used Sweet Italian Sausage the 2nd time I made it)
-  32 oz Chicken Broth (I always buy the low/reduce sodium kind)
- 2 cans diced tomatoes (Basil, Garlic & Oregano seasoned kind)
- 1/2 t Garlic Powder (not pictured)
- 8 oz cream cheese
- Grated Parmesan (Optional. And not pictured) for topping


Directions:
Step 1:
 Take your cream cheese out of the refrigerator and let it sit while you are browning your meat.

Step 2:
Add the tortellini to your crockpot.

Step 3:
Add the diced tomatoes. I actually puree the two cans of tomatoes because we don't like chunks of tomatoes :)

Step 4: 
Add in the Chicken Broth.

Step 5:
Add in cooked meat.

Step 6:
Add in garlic powder and cream cheese in chunks and give everything a good stir.

Step 7:
Cook on Low for 3 1/2 - 4 hours or High for 2 1/2 - 3 hours. Stir occasionally.

Here is a picture of it when it was about half way finished

  6. This looks tasty - Caleb isn't a big tomato fan but I am - so if there are ever tomatoes in a crock pot recipe (like there was in todays meal!!) I just cut the amount of them in half :) everybody wins. Great recipe, girl!
