Crockpot Cheese Tortellini {freezer meal}

It has been a while since I shared a freezer exchange meal.  So I thought I'd share one of my favorite meals from our May meal exchange.  It is a simple freeze and dump crock pot meal that fills you up.
Crockpot Cheese Tortellini

1 small bag of fresh spinach
2-14.5 oz cans of Italian style diced tomatoes, drained
8 oz cream cheese, diced
1 pound ground sausage or chicken/turkey sausage
4 cups chicken broth
1- 19 oz bag of frozen cheese tortellini

1. Brown the sausage and put the first five ingredients in crockpot or bowl and stir. 
*If freezing, put the sausage mixture in a freezer bag and freeze. Let it thaw overnight in the fridge before cooking.*
2. Cook on low for 4-6 hours.

3. Add the tortellini during the last 30 minutes of cooking. 
4. Enjoy!
