Recipe of the Week!

Sausage & Tortelli Soup
First of all, I don't really know what to call this recipe. I wouldn't really say it's a soup. It's too thick. There's not really a whole lot of broth. There's just really no closer word, I guess. On the plus side, this is a super simple meal. It really consists of putting all the ingredients into the crockpot and coming back a few hours later to eat. The first time I made it, I made it for crockpot Monday at work. It went over well. Then I think I made it on a snow day or something where I was home all day because it really doesn't take long to cook. It makes lots of leftovers for two people too.

1 (19oz) bag of frozen cheese tortellini
1 bag of fresh spinach (I used about half - three quarters of a 8 oz package)
2 (14.5 oz) cans of Italian style diced tomatoes
1 block (8 oz) of cream cheese
1 lb. sausage (I grilled about 3 or 4 links and sliced them)
3-4 cups of chicken broth

Grill and slice sausage. Cut the cream cheese into chunks. Place all ingredients in the crockpot, saving the chicken broth until last. Fill the crock pot with 3-4 cups of the broth. Cook on low about 4 hours, stirring occasionally.
