Very good. Family loved it. Added a chicken bouillon for more flavor. Next time would add cooked tortellini or fresh. Made with frozen and it cooled down the whole crockpot

My family loved it. I did add a little extra tomato paste than what it called for. Was delicious

OMG I loved this and so did my family. It makes quite a lot and lasted us two nights and so glad It did! The changes I made was using fresh cheese ravioli instead of tortellini and added a heap more spinach. This is one of my favourite meals I have made (and trust me, I've made so many meals of different kinds). An added bonus is that it is incredibly easy to make and basically in one pot.

I did this entirely in a crockpot instead of mixing the flour and paste in the microwave and it was fine. I also did this recipe on high for 3-4 hours and it came out amazing. Will certainly make again. VERY HEARTY!

I skipped the flour and added a little cream cheese. it was FANTASTIC!! We ate it up, gonna add it to the crockpot rotation.

Outstanding flavors to my family and me. We enjoyed evey bite. It makes a lot but the left-overs are just as delicious. I served with crusty baggett slices and was simply indulgent. I will make this again, and a lot. Thank you for sharing your recipe!

Easy & it was great. I hope you have a huge crock pot. This dish is meant for a big crowd. I doubled the spinach (cause that's just how I roll) and I needed to add three cups of hot broth because my tortellini didn't have enough liquid to cook evenly. I'm thinking this would make a great Holiday dish made with leftover turkey? It's pretty when plated. Don't try to serve it as an appetizer -- it's too heavy for that. Loved it. Sent half of it next door to a family with 5 kids & still had plenty leftover for my family.

My company raved about it. Wonderful. Served it with Portillos salad and warm bread. Mothers Day for my family. Make sure you grated your own parm, makes a big difference. This is a keeper.
