Creamy Crock Pot Tortellini Soup

Ingredients

24 oz. spaghetti sauce – something with a cool name, like Basil, Tomato and Garlic

1 lb. ground beef, browned

½ medium diced onion

3-4 cloves minced garlic

2, 3, 4 diced carrots – however many you want

2 stalks sliced celery – optional, but I like it

4 cups beef broth (or beef stock if you’re feeling interesting)

2 cups low-sodium, gluten-free water

8 oz. fresh sliced mushrooms

4 cups loosely packed spinach

8 oz. cream cheese – I use Green Mountain Farms Greek Cream Cheese – it’s a blend of Greek yogurt and cream cheese.  A lot healthier, tasty, and breaks up a WHOLE lot easier.  Available at fine Walmart stores everywhere in the Cream Cheese section.  You have to break up the block in small chunks – it’s messy, but you get to lick your fingers!

16 oz. tortellini – feel free to use different kinds.  I’ve used boring old frozen cheese-stuffed – which was good.  Tried the Italian Sausage stuffed, which was great.  Today using 3-cheese.  It’s a bit more expensive, but good stuff.

 

Directions

Combine all but the tortellini – cook on low 7 hours, or high for 5 hours.

Before adding the tortellini, whisk the soup to break up the cream cheese.  The spinach gets caught in the whisker a bit, but you’ll get used to it.

Add the tortellini and cook another 20-30 minutes (45 or so if frozen).

Serve with a bowl.  And spoon.  And whatever you want to drink…that’s your decision.
