"Great vegetarian crock pot recipe from my mom. Ground turkey or grilled chicken added to the finished product are great additions for meat lovers. Italian-style diced tomatoes can also be added."

Loved it! Husband asked where the meat was but after three bowls, he was full and happy.
When I opened my slow cooker the dish looked disgusting and it didn't taste too great either. The spinach sat on top, the cream cheese clumped, and the totrellini got mushy.
Was trying to find a meatless meal to make. Made this according to directions,and it was not a hit. Maybe meat and tomatoes would make it better, but that would defeat the vegetarian idea.
This dish was unexpectedly wonderful! I was so pleasantly surprised with how creamy the sauce was I had to share it with my neighbors even before dinner was served. They were so impressed as well I had to share the recipe on the spot. So few ingredients and so simple makes it a fantastic weeknight busy family dinner. My husband and kids LOVED it and came back for seconds! I followed the recipe exactly as written but am looking forward to trying new versions in the future (ie. broccoli, chicken, mini- meatballs, red pepper). Yum!
We all enjoyed it. I think the next time I make it I will add the spinach closer to the middle or end of the total cooking time.
