I've made this twice since trying it out for the first time. It's simple and a hit with everyone at my table. You can make the meaty sauce to your liking. Your goal is to have 6 cups of substantial sauce for flavor and texture. It's good stuff!
24 oz jar prepared spaghetti sauce
1/2 lb. browned ground beef
1/2 lb. browned Italian sausage
(can substitute above three ingredients for approximately 6 cups of your favorite homemade meaty sauce)
1/2 bag (4.5 oz.) fresh spinach leaves, roughly torn
4 cups chicken broth
8 oz. cream cheese
8 oz. fresh mushrooms, sliced
16 oz. frozen cheese tortellini
Combine spaghetti sauce (and meat if adding it in separately), spinach, cream cheese, chicken broth, and mushrooms in a slow-cooker. Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours, or high for 2-3.
20 minutes before serving, turn heat to high if it isn't already and stir in frozen tortellini. Cover and cook for 15-20 more minutes. Serve topped with parmesan cheese.
