best crockpot meal ive tried yet

You’ll need

1 (19oz) bag of frozen cheese tortellini

1 small bag of fresh spinach (I used about half of a 5 oz package, but more is better!)

2 (14.5 oz) cans of Italian style diced tomatoes, drained

1 block (8 oz) of cream cheese** (softened in microwave)

1 lb. of ground sausage or chicken/turkey sausage

3-4 cups of chicken broth (start with 3, add 1 more if it looks like it needs it)

How to make it 

Brown the sausage and put all ingredients in crockpot,

chunking up the cream cheese.

Cook on low for 4-6 hrs.

Serves 4-6

*Keep an eye on your tortellini, it may be done sooner.

*If still soupy, leave lid off for the last half hour or so of cooking.

*For a vegetarian version, omit sausage and use vegetable broth instead.

**If you use neufachtel (1/3 fat of cream cheese) be prepared that it doesn’t melt as well and leaves little curds.
