Recipe from Cinnamon ‘En’ Spice

J & I thought this recipe was okay.  I forgot to buy carrots, and decided it needed a little something extra, so I defrosted and threw in some chopped spinach.  I thought overall it was just a bit bland.  The carrots probably would’ve added some nice sweetness to it.  And I think some spice would’ve been a good addition, maybe crushed red pepper.

Ingredients:
2 medium carrots, sliced (I omitted)
10 ou frozen chopped spinach, thawed
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb boneless chicken thighs, cut into bite-size pieces
1 can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 t salt
1/4 t pepper
1 3/4 c chicken broth
2 c water
9 ou cheese filled tortellini
2 medium green onions, sliced
1 t dried basil
2 T shredded Parmesan

Directions:
Spray slow cooker with cooking spray. Layer in the carrots, garlic, chicken, beans.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Pour in broth and water and stir to combine.  Cook on low 6-8 or high 4-6 hours.

Stir in onions, tortellini, spinach and basil.  Set to high and cook for another 10-20 minutes, until tortellini is tender.  Sprinkle each serving with Parmesan cheese.
