CHEESY TORTELLINI with MEATSAUCE | EASY SLOW COOKER MEALS | Hip ‘n Creative

I love CrocPot/Slow Cooker Meals.  It is such an easy way to make a meal, set it and forget it. It’s great for busy days as well as those hot summer days that are coming our way! One of the newest recipes we tried is this Cheesy Tortellini with Meatsauce.  It is so good and a meal even some of the pickiest kids will love!  Two of my Three kids are very picky (like their Momma) and they loved this easy recipe – they even asked for seconds.. seconds people!  That’s a win! 😉

So here is what you’ll need for this easy recipe:

  • 8oz. Pasta or Marinara Sauce (your choice)
  • 10oz. Tortellini
  • 2 cups of Mozzarella cheese (shredded) or more if you prefer
  • 14oz. Diced Tomatoes
  • 1lb. ground meat or turkey
  • Croc Pot/ Slow Cooker
  • Slow Cooker Liner (optional)

This recipe is so easy it will take me longer to explain it that it is to make it lol.  But I want to share this with you because I love it so much and when I love something I need to share it with my besties!

First brown your meat and drain; next add you diced tomatoes and sauce.  Mix and let is sit on your croc pot for 3-4 Hours on High or 6-7 Hours on low.  About 15 minutes before serving add the tortellini and mozzarella cheese.  Cook for 15 minutes to allow cheese to melt and tortellini to cook and Boom done!  Super easy right?

I served this with some warm garlic bread but you can totally eat as is or add some steamed veggies on the side to this meal.

That’s it guys I hope you try this recipe and if you do and you love it, please share it with me on instagram with the hashtag #hncrecipe I would love to see it!  Here is a short video that I put together sharing my step by step instruction!

Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you on the next post!
