Ingredients:

24 oz jar  spaghetti sauce

2 cups water

1/4 cup diced onion

3-4 garlic cloves, mince

1/2 cup diced carrots

1lb. ground beef, browned

4 cups of loosely packed fresh spinach leaves

4 cups beef  broth

8 oz cream cheese, cut into 1 inch cubes

8 oz sliced fresh mushrooms

16 oz refrigerated cheese tortellini (you can also use frozen, just add 30 more minutes to cooking time.

Directions:

1. Combine spaghetti sauce, water,  meat, onions, garlic, carrots,  spinach, cream cheese, beef  broth, and mushrooms in a slow-cooker. Cook on LOW for 7 hours, on HIGH  for 5  hours.

2. Before adding in tortellini, take a whisk to your soup to break up any chunks of cream cheese. Stir in  tortellini. Cover and cook for 20-30 minutes or until tender and hot. (If using frozen tortellini, I would cook for about 45 more minutes, or until tender and hot)
