Ingredients

  • 1 pound beef stew meat
  • 2 cups spicy marinara or spaghetti sauce
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 14.5oz cans fire-roasted diced tomatoes (or regular diced tomatoes if preferred)
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 8 oz dried tortellini pasta noodles
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream optional
  • grated parmesan cheese for serving optional

Instructions

  • Add stew meat, spaghetti sauce, broth, diced tomatoes and Italian seasoning to slow cooker
  • Cover and cook on low for 7 - 9 hours
  • Remove lid and stir (you can also break up any larger chunks of stew meat if desired)
  • Add tortellini pasta and turn slow cooker to high, let cook for 20-30 minutes or until pasta is tender
  • To cut the acidity a bit you can stir in one to two tablespoons of cream, this is optional but does help the flavors work together nicely
  • Serve garnished with grated parmesan cheese or as desired

Notes

I cooked this on low in my 4 quart multi cooker for 8 hours then on high for about 20 minutes to cook pasta
