Crockpot Italian Tortellini

Updated: Jan 11

Today, I'm sharing one of my favorite (easy) crockpot dinners. This Crockpot Italian Tortellini is quick to throw together in a few minutes and makes a yummy dinner on a busy day. It's practically a dump-and-go meal. Perfect for a busy Winter soupy meal.

Ingredients:

1 lb ground Italian sausage

5 oz spinach (or a few handfuls)

8 oz block of cream cheese.

  1. In a large pan, brown your Italian sausage.

  2. While the sausage is cooking, I start getting out my other ingredients and my crockpot. I'm a timesaver, and this is my hustle meal.

  3. In your crockpot, add in the frozen tortellini, Rotel, vegetable broth, Italian seasonings, and spinach.

  4. Once your sausage is done cooking, add that to the crockpot too. Stir to mix everything around.

  5. Top everything with a block of cream cheese. There is no need to stir at this point or chop up the cream cheese.

  6. Cook on low for 5-6 hours.

  7. Once you're ready to eat, stir in the cream cheese and serve.

** It's delicious with bread to soak up the sauce.

This recipe was one that I was told by a friend when we went to a birthday party. She served it and it was amazing. I may have tweaked it over the years, I can't remember if it's exactly the same as she told it to me, or if it's been changed as I made it for my own family.


This crockpot tortellini is so good. We make it year-round over here, but it's even better in the Fall and Winter when you just want a bowl of something delicious to warm you up. It's also a good one to take to someone for a meal train when they've had a baby or need a dinner delivered.

It doesn't get much easier than this! We hope you like it as much as we do.
