Italian Tortellini Stew- Crock Pot

One of my monthly goals this month was to make some new crock pot meals.  I have been getting lots of emails from Kraft Foods, Betty Crocker & Cooking Light with new fall recipes.  This is the first one I picked out.  The prep time for this meal was a breeze.  I cooked the stew all day on low and added the tortellini as directed about 20 minutes before serving.  This is a perfect dinner for a cool winter night.
