Doesn't that just sound awesome? Well, it is. Some people might think the crockpot is perfect for cold weather... having something simmering and filling the house with yummy smells all day. I personally love my crockpot in the summer. I can throw dinner together real quick and then head outside to catch the end of the day with the kids outside. You can never have too many crock pot recipes in your arsenal if you ask me.
Another one of my wonderful neighbors brought this over last week (Thanks Tawnya and Eric!!!) Here is how they made it:
Crockpot Sausage Tortellini Soup
6 oz cooked Italian sausage (sweet or spicy, but they used sweet! Take the sausage out of the casings and brown it on the stove top crumbled up, place on a paper towel to drain extra fat.)
1 bag preshredded coleslaw mix (its about 2 cups, maybe a little more)
2 cups frozen green beans
2 - 14 1/2 oz cans Italian style stewed tomatoes
1 - 10 1/2 oz can condensed french onion soup
3 cups water
1 9 oz package refrigerated fresh cheese filled tortellini
freshly grated parm
In a crock pot add the sausage, coleslaw mix, green beans, undrained tomatoes, soup and water. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours. 20 minutes prior to serving, turn to high setting and add tortellini. Serve with parm sprinkled on top.
Easy and delicious!! (No picture... it went too fast to photograph)
