Slow-cooker Creamy Tortellini Recipe With Sausage & Spinach: A Hearty 5-Ingredient Pasta Recipe by Ann Marie Gardinier Halstead
Dinner time can be a challenge for my family. I’ll be honest: cooking tends to stress me out. I’m not naturally good at it, my older son and I are picky eaters, and two of us are carnivores while two of us are CARBivores. Therefore, it’s tricky finding a recipe that I enjoy cooking and everyone equally enjoys eating.
I found this slow-cooker creamy tortellini and sausage soup recipe on 30Seconds.com and it was a hit! It seemed more like a pasta dish with a creamy tomato sauce than a soup recipe to me. Either way, it was delicious. My entire family loved it and said they’d like me to make it again (though the carnivores requested more sausage next time!). I hope your family enjoys it, too. I served it with garlic bread.
