Rustic Italian Stew

I’m terribly disheartened that cool weather is here. Fall is lovely, it’s colors and smells, but fall means winter will be here in no time. While I love using the slow cooker year-round, I admit that fall makes me even more hungry for simmering soups and stews. This recipe can withstand a whole day in the slow cooker which earns it double points in my book!

  • sausage tortelliniIn large slow cooker, combine…
    • 2 14.5 cans of Italian diced tomatoes
    • 8 ounces smoked sausage, sliced into rings
    • 10.5 ounce can french onion soup
    • 3 cups water
    • 1 T. crushed garlic
    • 2 cups frozen green beans
  • Cook on low for 8-10 hours or high for 4-5 hours.
  • Half an hour before eating, turn slow cooker to high and stir in…
    • 19 ounces frozen cheese tortellini
    • 2 cups coleslaw blend cabbage
  • Serve with Parmesan cheese and crusty bread.

The cheese tortellini made this soup totally indulgent, and I’ll be looking forward to eating leftovers at lunch all morning on Monday!
