Easy Crockpot Tortellini You Will Make Again


“I need an easy Crockpot Recipe to make for dinner!”

Crockpot meals make me so happy, y’all! Regardless if you are home during the day or away, it sure is nice to toss everything in the Crockpot hours before dinnertime! My Crockpot makes my entire day easier. Being a homeschool mom & online wellness coach, there are plenty of other things needing my attention. Spending too much time preparing our meals takes away teaching & work time. So, I use my Crockpot as often as possible! And, I can tell you, as long the food is delicious, everyone is happy! This Cheesy Tortellini with ground beef certainly did not disappoint my family one bit at the end of the day! So, if you’re like me and could really use a great meal with little effort, this is definitely one recipe you will want to add to your cookbook! Enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

I make delicious, easy meals with my Crockpot slow cooker! ~Domestic Chick

Directions:

Put all ingredients except tortellini and cheese into the Crockpot.  Cook on high 4 hours, or on low for 6 hours.  Add tortellini 20-30 minutes before itโ€™s done cooking.  Top with shredded cheese as you plate this dish & add  a beautiful green salad or side of steamed broccoli for a sure crowd pleaser!  

* Precooking the beef makes this an incredibly easy meal to prepare.  Tip: Buy meat on sale, precook and freeze in 1-pound bags to easily pull out and prepare a quick and delicious meal.

EASY Oven Veggies: Even the kids ask for them!

PREP: 15 min. COOK: 30-40 min. TEMP: 375 degrees F

๐ŸŽ‰BONUS: These can marinate in the fridge a day or two if it helps your schedule! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here’s what you need:

– a few of your favorite fresh veggies 
( purple cabbage, carrots, onion, brussel sprouts, asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower…)
– extra virgin olive oil
– choice of seasonings
– plastic gallon storage bag
– shallow baking sheet (I use a jelly roll pan)
– foil

Directions:  

  • Cover a shallow baking sheet with foil, preheat the oven to 375.
  • Select your veggies & chop into bite-sized pieces. For example: cut brussel sprouts in 1/2, small onion into about 8 chunks, and use baby carrots just the way they are!
  • Throw it all into a gallon storage bag about 1/2 to 3/4ths full (depending on how many you are serving).
  • In a measuring cup pour in 1/4 to 1/3 cup of olive oil (depending on how full you fill the bag.) 
  • Add approximately 2 Tablespoons seasonings into the oil & stir. (I often go with: Montreal Steak, garlic powder, pepper, salt … it’s hard to go wrong!) Pour this oil/ seasoning mixture into bag over the veggies.
  • Seal the bag & turn it over & over to completely coat the veggies inside.
  • Pour the mixture onto the foil-covered baking sheet and slide into the oven! 
  • Check on them & stir a time or two while they’re cooking.
  • Cook until they are tender, with slightly crispy, caramelized edgesโ€ฆ generally 30-40 minutes.
