    pixiesmom's Note:

    This is a family favorite from Taste of Home magazine. You start by making the beef/bean mixture in the crockpot, then you can freeze half and use the rest to make the tortellini soup (makes enough for 2 meals) Once the starter is made the soup takes only about 10-15 minutes to table!!! Super weeknight meal with crusty bread and a green salad!!!
