    umm…a regular size? lol. I’m not sure. It’s the standard size crock pot I’d say.

    I’m not a fan of sausage, I used Adell’s chicken artichoke sausage, Bertoli’s fresh tortellini, 1 can of italian tomatos, home made stock, fresh spinach and garlic, and feta instead of cream cheese.

    yum, and probably slightly healthier

    this is a great recipe for a cool day

    I’m making this tonight but adding some polska keilbasa sausage and cream of chicken soup. I have some shrimp that I plan to toss in the last 10 minutes of cooking too. Looking forward to trying this!

    I added a crushed clove of garlic and chopped a few leaves of basil and threw them in. Turned out great. :)

    Honestly, I would double it for 5 adults. I make this for 2 adults and we usually have enough leftover for one more meal. So that’d be 4 servings-ish. I always like to have more food than my guests will eat that way I know no one left the table hungry! Good luck and let me know how it goes :)

    Do you know about how many adults this one recipe would feed? I am going to make it for 5 adults and want to be sure it’ll be enough or should I double the recipe? Thanks!

    I have this in the crock pot right now. I’ve left the lid off for the last 2 hours to let it thicken up a little. I also used kielbasa instead of sausage and it’s added another dimension to the flavor.
    My frozen tortellini bag was 16oz and the fresh spinach was 6oz bag (4 cups).
    Although , I did get the full-fat cream cheese, there are still little crumbles that have not melted down. I might blend it with the warm broth before putting it all together next time I make it.
    Smells great!

    Oh gosh… I’ve never paid much attention. Last time I used a regular sized bag of Market Pantry frozen spinach. I’d guesstimate that at around 16 ounces/bag? And the Trader Joe’s bag of tortellini is pretty similar sized. So I’d say about 16 ounces of that, also. Of course, once the frozen spinach cooks down, the volume is much less.

    I’m lazy, so I just use a cheese tortellini. Trader Joe’s has a great one already premade!

  10. Dana says

    What kind of frozen tortelini do you use? The cheese tortelini or the regular or tricolor with no cheese in it?

  11. CollegeCouponChick says

    I have never had any issues with it cooking up as pictured. Perhaps the sausage does add something as far as thickness goes? Odd. Sorry it didn’t work out, but the cream of chicken is a GREAT tip. I”ll try that next! :)

    Ok, so I am thinking there is to much liquid in this for me. It is just to thin and watery. So, I have added a can of cream of chicken soup gave it another hour. That seem to give it some body and is pretty tasty. Next time I will prob. cut back on broth, maybe use stock and add liquid as needed.
