Slow Cooker Chicken & Veggie Tortellini Stew

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.

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

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.
