Crockpot Spinach Tortellini with Sausage

Slow Cooker cheesy spinach tortellini. This is a MUST TRY recipe!

This crockpot spinach tortellini is amazing and the best part about it is that everyone can make it! The recipe is so simple and easy to learn. You will want to recreate it constantly after trying it for the first time. My favorite part about it is all the yummy veggies I include, but if you prefer not to add those the creamy tortellini is yummy just on its own.

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!
