Uncomfortable comfort zone


The last week hasn't been good for quilting.  A couple of days ago I tore apart my quilting machine and pulled out my hair for two hours only to find that it was operator error.  And then today I ended up calling customer service for my Baileys  Home Quilter.  Luckily it was something I could fix in jiffy.  But of course before I called I spent about an hour trying to figure it out myself.  Good news is I'm quilting again!  So during my break while the sun was shining in the window I managed to get a really go picture of the progress.  Don't look at my stray threads that still need to be buried. 
With all the frustration I decided I needed some comfort food.  This is a wonderful dish if you don't mind a ton of calories.  And its super easy and quick.

Ingredients:
1 (19oz) bag of frozen cheese tortellini 
1 small bag of fresh spinach ( I used about half of a 5 oz package)
2 (14.5 oz) cans of Italian style diced tomatoes, drained
1 block (8 oz) of cream cheese or neufchatel (less fat)
1 lb. of ground sausage or chicken/turkey sausage
4 cups of chicken broth 

Brown and drain the sausage and put all ingredients in crockpot,
chunking up the cream cheese.
Cook on low for 4-6 hrs.
I made this on the stove top on low heat and it cooked up in about an hour.  Severed with homemade Italian bread and homemade garlic butter.  Comforting and YUMMY!

Until next time "Quilt out of your Comfort Zone!"
