Jessica Pumilia


1 medium yellow onion, diced
⅓ cup all purpose flour
1 Tbsp dried basil
2 cloves of garlic, minced
2 Tbsp tomato paste
3 Tbsp olive oil
4 cups chicken broth
2 (14.5 oz) cans petite diced tomatoes
1 to 1Ĺ lbs ground Italian sausage, cooked and drained
1/2 tsp pepper
4 cups frozen or fresh cheese tortellini
3 cups packed spinach (you can definitely add more than this if you want)
Ĺ cup Parmesan cheese
1 cup heavy cream or 1 cup half and half

In a microwave-safe bowl add the onions, flour, basil, garlic, tomato paste, and drizzle with olive oil. Microwave for 5 minutes, stirring every 90 seconds or so. The mixture will be pasty and look weird but donít worry it will all be okay in the end. Add the mixture to the slow cooker.

Add broth, tomatoes, sausage, salt, and pepper to the slow cooker. Stir.
Cover and cook on LOW for 4-6 hours or on HIGH for 3-4 hours.

And add in tortellini, spinach, Parmesan cheese, and warmed cream. Cream should be warmed because it may cause curdling if added in cold. Put the lid back on and cook on HIGH for about 10 more minutes, or until the tortellini are cooked through. Ladle into serving bowls and enjoy!
