Crockpot Tortellini Soup

March 4, 2014

1 bag of frozen tortellini (10-12 oz)
1 small bag of fresh spinach
2 cans of Italian style diced tomatoes (14.5 oz)
1 box or 4 cups or chicken broth
1 block of cream cheese (8 oz), cut into cubes
1 lb. of roll(ground) sausage (I used hot)
Directions:  Brown the sausage and put all ingredients(except spinach, if you want it to stay green) in crock pot. Cook on low for 3-4 hrs.  If you don’t add the spinach at the beginning, add it ~1 hour before serving.  If the ‘sauce’ is too thin, leave the lid off during the last 1/2 hour of cooking and it will thicken slightly.
