Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground chuck beef
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 28 oz crushed tomatoes
  • 14.5 oz petite diced tomatoes
  • 6 oz tomato paste
  • 12 oz tomato sauce
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp fennel seeds, optional
  • 1 tsp each granulated sugar & Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tbsp salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 3 cups beef broth
  • 20 oz package cheese filled
  • tortellini
  • 6 tbsp Parmesan cheese
  • 4 tbsp fresh parsley, optional
  • Recipe

    In a medium skillet over medium heat, brown and crumble beef until cooked through. Add onion and garlic, and cook 1-2 minutes. Combine beef broth, crushed tomatoes, petite diced tomatoes, tomato paste, and tomato sauce in slow cooker. Add sugar and seasonings. Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours or low 5-7 hours. Pour tortellini into the soup 20 minutes prior to serving with heat set to high. Serve in bowls with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and parsley. *Note: Garlic bread or a grilled cheese made with a blend of mozzarella, provolone and/or Parmesan cheese is a yummy compliment to this soup. You can also cook this on the stovetop. Simmer on low for 1 ½ hours. Turn heat to medium and cook tortellini 12-16 minutes or until tender.

    I’m a little confused on the recipe side. When do you add the beef to crock pot and where did the sugar come from? I want to try this recipe, but need a little clarification. Thanks
