Italian Stew

I am a huge fan of crock pots...
I don't know about you all, but I just love being able to throw something in
it in the am and then  8 hours later come back to a finished product!

This particular recipe for Italian Stew comes
from a dear friend of our family

  • 2 1/2 lbs mild Italian sausage
  • 1 medium green pepper
  • 1 onion
  • 2 c of carrots
  • 7 c of beef broth
  • 1 6oz can of tomato paste
  • 4 c tomato juice or pureed stewed tomatoes
  • 1 T seasoning salt
  • 1 t garlic powder
  • 1 t basil
  • 1 t oregano
  • 1 bag of frozen cheese tortellini

Chop your vegetables

Cook the sausage and then add peppers and onions
and seasoning salt

Drain grease from sausage and vegetables

Combine the rest of the ingredients into the crockpot and add the meat and vegetables

Cook on high for 2 hours and then set on low for remainder of the time

About 30 minutes prior to serving add the frozen tortellini

Top with mozzarella cheese if you desire

Bon appetit!
