recipe: crockpot skinny cheese tortellini with sausage

I love this recipe! Super easy and so worth it.  I found this recipe through Pinterest. You can click here to see the full recipe from the Pinterest Wife.


Ingredients
  • 1 Crock pot liner (best thing ever invented)
  • 1 (19 oz) bag frozen cheese tortellini
  • 1 small bag of fresh spinach
  • 1 (14.5 oz) cans Italian style diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 block (8 oz) fat free cream cheese
  • 1 lb chicken sausage (you could also use ground turkey)
  •  3 cups chicken broth (use 1-1 1/2 if you don’t want it as a soup)
  • 1 can mushrooms (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp. Oregano
  • 1 Tbsp. Basil
  • 1 Tbsp. Italian Seasoning

My tips:
  • Definitely don't overcook it (I think high for 2-2 1/2 hours is plenty)
  • I couldn't find frozen tortellini so I just used fresh from the refrigerated section.
  • You can probably add more spinach if you want.
  • I did use the mushrooms that were optional.
  • I cooked my sausage first even though you don't have to, we just like ours a little crispier.
  • I used the whole 3 cups of chicken broth and I didn't think it was that soupy- as you can see from the photos above.
Enjoy!
