Slow Cooked Tortellini and Spinach Soup Recipe

Slow-cooked creamy tortellini and spinach soup

Having to buy a slow cooker means I get to abuse it while it's still new. Here is a recipe for slow cooked tortellini and spinach that's rather simple. I suppose that you can replace the tortellini with other types of stuffed pasta and go from there.

Crockpot Tortellini Spinach Soup

  • 1 package of frozen tortellini
  • 1 small bag of fresh spinach
  • 2 cans (10.5 oz) of diced tomatoes
  • 4 cups of chicken broth
  • 1 block of Kraft Philadelphia Cream Cheese

Cube the cream cheese into 1-inch blocks or so. Mix all ingredients in a slow cooker. Set temperature to low for 5-6 hrs. Stir to blend thoroughly in the last hour.

Sometimes, I add onion, garlic, and/or sliced mushrooms to change things around. They're great healthy snack ideas for weight loss.  But by itself, this recipe is already yummy.
