I’m always a little weary of the one pot meals. We have a few, One Pot Lasagna Pasta and Slow Cooker Chicken Alfredo Rice Casserole for example, and they really do in fact turn out without dirtying a sink of dishes, however we’ve also tried a few from pinterest and been greatly disappointed in the lack of flavor. Our one pot slow cooker garden tortellini took 3 tries to get just right, but we love the results.

Every summer I can’t get enough of the fresh produce. My parents have a ginormous yard and garden, and I mean huge garden and we reap the benefits of their hard work whenever we go to visit, but we have yet to have our own garden like that. Our backyard just isn’t big enough. Someday we will change that but for now we hit up our parents or the local farmers markets whenever we can.

The only tricky thing is, like kids who take too much dessert my eyes are also bigger than my belly as I always get more than we can use, so I’m left with random tomatoes, zucchini and whatever else. Hence the one pot tortellini. I thought, if I could get the measurements right and just throw it all in the slow cooker that would be such a lifesaver and the slow cooker totally doesn’t heat up the kitchen like the stove and oven do. I still prefer grilling or sauteing the zucchini, but out of laziness I’ll often throw it in the slow cooker anyway.

Are Slow Cookers and Crock Pots the Same Thing?

Crock-Pots and slow cookers use moist heat to cook food over a long period of time.

Both are used to cook the same types of foods, and both produce the same delicious results.

These wonderful, small kitchen appliances even contain the same three components: a pot, glass lid, and heating element.

What is Tortellini?

Tortellini is small squares of pasta that are stuffed with meat or cheese and then rolled and formed into small rings.

In the end use whatever veggies you want.

Skip the cream for a healthier option.

Add mozzarella cheese for a not healthier option.;)

It’s all up to you, but the key to all of it is to use a really good sauce as your base and throw in fresh herbs and spices to brighten it all up.

  • You didn’t stipulate if the tortellini were dry. They do sell tortellini in the refrigerator section that are fresh.

  • This Slow Cooker Garden Tortellini looks and sounds fabulous! Thanks for sharing 🙂 I was wondering if you used Fresh or Frozen Tortellini, and how much?

    • Hi Elizabeth, we used dry but if you use fresh just cut down on the time in the slow cooker by about 1/3-1/2.
