Need a quick and easy dinner option? Let your slow cooker do all the work making this flavorful, delicious Cheesy Crockpot Tortellini!
Growing up, my mom always placed a big importance on family dinners. Every night, she would prepare a homemade meal along with tasty a dessert.
My family would all gather around the table and share stories from our days.
At the time, I didn’t think anything of it because to me, that was normal, but now, looking back on it as I have a family of my own, I too love to have family dinners and have passed down the tradition and value of it! What traditions does your family have?
Nothing beats sitting down to dinner after a long day and getting to enjoy the cheesiest, most flavorful tortellini dish, right?!
Tender tortellini, flavorful spaghetti sauce, and layers of cheese combine into a comfort food meal everyone will enjoy! All made in the convenience of your slow cooker!
In my house, pasta is ALWAYS a hit! Having three kids, I like quick and simple meals that everyone will happily eat up! Pasta seems to always be a hit, so typically, at least one dinner per week is pasta based!
If you browse your grocery store, you’ll likely find several spaghetti sauce options. Whichever one is your favorite, works great in this recipe! Do you like one that has lots of garlic and herbs, do you prefer a spicy tomato one, or do you make homemade sauce? My favorite is a garlic variety as we are huge garlic lovers in my house!
