March Madness Day 28: Meatloaf Tortellini

1/2 cup minced onions
1 tsp canola oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 Tbsp tomato paste
1/2 cup Alfredo sauce
1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes
1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
pinch black pepper
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 cup sliced mushrooms
20 spinach leaves (more or less)
1/2 lb leftover meatloaf
2 cups frozen tortellini
1/4 to 1/2 cup grated mozzarella

Microwave the onions, oil, garlic and tomato paste for about 3-4 minutes, stirring every minute.  Add to the slow cooker along with the Alfredo, tomatoes, sauce, pepper, Italian seasoning, mushrooms, spinach, and crumbled meatloaf.  Stir until combined and then fold in the tortellini.  Sprinkle mozzarella over the top.  Cover and cook on LOW for about 3-4 hours. 

Meatloaf yet another day.  Still trying to use it up.  It was a big plate.  Very big.  Although it does work really well in these types of dishes.  It is already ready to go and it has bread crumbs in it so it holds together and the texture of it doesn't get weird and grainy.  This was a GG (Greg gone) meal.  Kids loved it and I sneaked the spinach in there just for them.  3 stars.
