Creamy Tortellini and Spinach


So tonight I made this crockpot meal I found on tiktok. It was super easy and doesn’t cost much at all!
First add a bag of frozen tortellini, 1 can of diced tomatoes, 1 box of chicken stock, 2 blocks of cream cheese, cook 1lb of the meat you want to add (I used ground beef) add that into the crockpot, then top off with spinach.
Cook on high for 4 hours.


Creamy Tortellini and Spinach Crockpot Delight


  • 1 bag (about 20 oz) frozen tortellini
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes
  • 1 box (32 oz) chicken stock
  • 2 blocks (16 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 lb ground beef (or meat of your choice)
  • 2 cups fresh spinach, washed and chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: Grated Parmesan cheese for serving


  1. Prepare the Ingredients:
    • Brown the ground beef in a skillet over medium-high heat until fully cooked. Drain excess fat.
    • Soften the cream cheese by microwaving it for about 30 seconds or leaving it at room temperature.
  2. Layer in the Crockpot:
    • In the crockpot, combine the frozen tortellini, diced tomatoes (with their juice), chicken stock, softened cream cheese, and the cooked ground beef. Mix everything together until well combined.
  3. Add Spinach:
    • Gently fold in the chopped spinach, distributing it evenly throughout the mixture.
  4. Season:
    • Season the mixture with salt and pepper according to your taste. Remember that the cheese and stock may already add some saltiness, so start with a little and adjust as needed.
  5. Cook:
    • Set the crockpot to high and cook for 4 hours. This allows the flavors to meld together, and the tortellini to cook to perfection.
  6. Serve:
    • Once the cooking time is complete, give the mixture a final stir. The cream cheese should have melted, creating a creamy sauce. Taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary.
  7. Garnish:
    • Serve the creamy tortellini and spinach hot, garnished with grated Parmesan cheese if desired.
  8. Enjoy:
    • Dish out this delightful and easy-to-make meal, and enjoy the creamy, comforting flavors!
