    Delicious! Due to COVID-19 I had to make some changes. I couldn't find dried tortellini or California-blend vegetables. Instead I used frozen tortellini and mixed vegetables. Since we are a family of 5 I doubled the recipe but I only had 3 cans of Cream of Mushroom Soup. It still turned out very tasty. This was so easy to prepare I'm sure I'll make it again.

    Made this tonight, my family of picky eats loved it. I used frozen tortellini, broccoli and carrot frozen mix sub one can of celery for onion. Came out great. Would recommend spraying the crockpot first with non stick. Also temp setting wasn’t mentioned in the magazine addition I had of it. Did 4 hours on a low setting.
