Slow Cooker Spicy Tortellini Soup


I'm wondering if it will ever stop snowing around here. We have a foot of snow on the ground and it is still snowing! I clearly went on vacation too early this year. I am longing for warmth and sunshine and I don't think we will be seeing the crazy warm temps that we did last Spring. So, the chances of having another 80 degree St.Patricks Day are probably slim. Sigh...Anyway, today is the perfect day for soup. This tortellini soup is a hearty and filling soup and figure friendly! I served mine with a salad and breadsticks. It was delish!

Slow Cooker Three Cheese Tortellini Soup
Serves 6
WW PP=6
Cal 218, Fat 6.1g, Carbs 27.8g, Fiber 2g, Protein 12.5g

Ingredients
3 cups three cheese tortellini (I used Buttoni)
1 cup chopped pepperoni (I used turkey pepperoni)
4 cups beef broth
1 cup marinara sauce
1 1/2 cups water
2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 cups baby spinach
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp red pepper flakes
salt and pepper to taste

In the bottom of your slow cooker add all ingredients except the pepperoni and tortellini. Cook on low for 4-5 hours or until veggies are tender. Add your pepperoni and tortellini and continue cooking for another 30 minutes. Top with shredded Parmesan if desired. Enjoy!
