Crockpot Sausage Spinach Tortellini

 

Summers in Arizona can be pretty brutal. So when there is a good crockpot recipe I am all up for it so I don’t have to heat up my house! This recipe did the job! I wish my kids actually ate the “green stuff” but they ended up pushing it aside unfortunately! But i sure enjoyed every bite of this recipe!

Crockpot Sausage Spinach Tortellini
Adapted from: Little Fellows

1 lb ground sausage
1 (19 oz) bag of frozen cheese tortellini
1 large handful of spinach
2 (14.5 oz) cans diced tomatoes, drained
3 1/2 cups chicken broth
2 teaspoons pepper
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon oregano
1 (8 oz) block cream cheese
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded

Brown ground sausage over medium heat while breaking into small pieces. Grab crockpot and turn on high. Place tortellini in the bottom, then the cooked sausage, until all ingredients (except mozzarella cheese) in crockpot. Place cream cheese on top so that it doesn’t curdle. Cook for 3-4 hours on high. If you are home stir ingredients all together as many times as possible. Turn crockpot to “warm” or off then take off lid for about 30 minutes to let set up and add the cup of mozzarella cheese. Stir and serve!
