Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • 24 oz jar spaghetti sauce
  • 2 cups water
  • ¼ cup diced onion
  • 3-4 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ cup diced carrots
  • 1lb ground beef, browned
  • 4 cups of loosely packed fresh spinach leaves
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 8 oz cream cheese, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 8 oz sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 16 oz refrigerated cheese tortellini (you can also use frozen, just add 30 more minutes to cooking time)
Instructions
  1. Combine spaghetti sauce, water, meat, onions, garlic, carrots, spinach, cream cheese, beef broth, and mushrooms in a slow-cooker. Cook on LOW for 7 hours, on HIGH for 5 hours.
  2. Before adding in tortellini, take a whisk to your soup to break up any chunks of cream cheese. Stir in tortellini. Cover and cook for 20-30 minutes or until tender and hot. (If using frozen tortellini, I would cook for about 45 more minutes, or until tender and hot)
