This is one of my personal favorite go to recipes when i’m running on short notice. Please feel free to alter it how you see fit. See the comments below, and read how others have achieved success modifying this customizable recipe.

You’ll Need:

- 1 Slow cooker
- 1 package of chicken broth (32 oz)
- 1 package of your favorite tortellini (20 oz, we used three cheese)
- 1 lb spicy italian sausage
- 2 Cans Diced Tomatoes (seasoned with basil, garlic & oregano)
- 8 oz. Cream Cheese (try low fat).
- Grated Parmesan Cheese for toppings.

1. Take your cream cheese or Neufchâtel out of the fridge, and let it sit while you quickly brown your meat.

2. Add the sausage and tortellini to your Crock Pot. Pour the tomatoes, liquid and all, and broth over the top. Add your cream cheese to the Pot in chunks.

3. Give your Crock Pot a good stir to get everything evenly distributed, making sure the liquids are adequately covering the tortellini.

4. Cook on LOW for a total of 4 1/2 hours. Stir at 2 hours, and again at 4 hours, removing the lid for the last 30 minutes of cooking. This will give the sauce some time to thicken up.

    I am not a fan of chunks of tomatoes. If I used just tomato sauce how many cans would I use? Also what size cans?

    2 regular sized cans of tomato sauce should work fine! (like the store bought pasta sauces, sausage & garlic tomato sauce would work very well)

    I want to make this tomorrow but if I put it in the crockpot we are gone 8+ hours so I wanted to just cook it on top of the stove. Will this work and, if so, how long to simmer it?
    Thanks, Donna

      You can prepare this on the stove much faster, just boil the tortellini for 3-4 minutes. The flavours won’t be as infused, but it will still taste good :)

    I made this tonight and my family loved it – the only issue was our pasta was a bit on the soggy side. Any suggestions or is that how it turns out for you too? Thanks

    Is the tortellini frozen when you add it to the slow cooker?

      No, use the fresh store bought refrigerated tortellini! Not the frozen ones.

    Is the last picture what yours looks like upon completion? Mine turned into a big blob and is probably the most unappetizing-looking thing I’ve ever made. I have no idea what I did wrong. :(

    I made this last night in the crockpot on high for 2 hours. I split the recipe in half since it’s just my husband and I. It was pretty good. It got better the longer it sat. Will be eating leftovers for lunch!
