Creamy Tortellini and Sausage Soup can be done in the slow cooker. It runs very close to disobeying my strict SET IT AND FORGET IT rule of “all items need to be assembled in the slow cooker in under 10 minutes” due to browning the sausage.
On this date my intentions were to make it in the slow cooker, however when I arrived home 3 hours later than anticipated my cooking methods quickly changed. If you do want to make this in the crock pot, brown sausage and put everything except frozen spinach and tortellini into slow cooker on high. Cook for 3 hours. Add tortellini and spinach and continue to cook for an hour on high.
