Beef & Tortellini Marinara with Green Beans
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Cook: 6-1/2 hours
Made this more or less as written, except I used 20 ounces of tortellini. I think it would have been too soupy otherwise.
while taste was very good, 6 hours in slow cooker, did not soften beans or beef cubes. I would suggest using canned string beans, drained, and cooking meat for a while before putting in slow cooker.
This recipe is so full of flavor, delicious!!

This recipe is the BEST!!! I have made this several times and it is delicious. I made it exactly as the recipe and it is a favorite.
Although this recipe looks and sounds delicious, most of it is still sitting in the crock pot. My Italian food loving family did not care for this at all. I may try again without the spaghetti sauce envelopes... not a flavor we cared for. I would also make the tortillini separately and serve the crock pot fixings over the top as the the tortillini were very chewy.
This was hearty, the sauce was thick, and the beans were still al dente. There was a strange flavor that I couldn't put my finger on - would like to make again, but perhaps use less of that herb, if I could figure it out; also a little hot - might not use as much pepper another time.
This is excellent. It is rich, hearty and filling. It is also easy to make - put it in the slow cooker, leave for the day. Then come home, add the tortellini, make a salad, warm the bread and enjoy.
