Crockpot Sausage & Tortellini Stew
 
 

For those of you who have been following Family Fresh Meals since the beginning, this stew might look a little familiar to you.

 

I decided to give this recipe a much needed make-over. Same amazing recipe, but prettier pictures :)

 

The stew has been a family favorite since the first time I made it. It is so easy and healthy…. what else could you ask for?

 

Hope you enjoy this Crockpot Sausage & Tortellini Stew! XO Corey

  1. Mmm, you know i love tortellini in the crock. good idea adding the beans! nummers! i loves green beans!!

  2. Wow, what a wonderful dish! I love the picture with the thumbs up! he he I haven’t had tortellini in so long, I need to try your stew!

  3. This looks great! Love it with the green beans!

  4. Sound delicious and I love slow cooker recipes. I only have frozen tortellini…do you think I should thaw and add it 20 minutes before it’s done or throw it in frozen at the beginning? I’ve seen some other recipes that use frozen and cook it for 5 hours…hmmm….thanks for the great recipe idea!

    • I think it would be fine to put it in frozen and just adjust the cooking time. I hope you love it Tayna! XO

  5. Could you use can or fresh green beans my kids do not like frozen green beans and Im not to sure why
