I was looking for a pasta recipe that didn't require cooking the pasta in advance. This one was very easy to make. I didn't have eight hours to cook it on slow, so I cooked it on high for 3 1/2 before adding the tortellini. It seemed thick so I splashed in a little water. It was absolutely delicious. Guests raved and raved and asked for the recipe. Next time I will try precooked Italian sausage so I don't have to brown it first.
