  • 1 can of Orignial Manwich
  • 1 can of Thick and Chunky or Bold Manwich
  • 1 pkg. Frozen Tortellini ~ any kind
  • 1 1/2 cups precooked Chicken ~ Optional
  • 1 1/2 cups Mozzarella Shredded Cheese
  • 1/2 cup water


  1. Spray Slow Cooker with Cooking Spray or use a crockpot liner for easy clean up

  2. Add Tortellini and Manwich Sauces of your choice
  3. Add Chicken
  4. Add water and then stir.
  5. Cover and cook on LOW for 3 hours. Of course this time could vary depending on how your slow cooker cooks, but 3 hours should be about right.
  6. This is NOT AN ALL DAY Slow Cooker recipe. The Tortellini cooks too fast for that. This recipe is meant for those busy days when you have to be out of the house the few hours before dinner but want to come home to a hearty meal.
  7. Add Cheese 10 ~ 15 minutes before serving so the cheese melts and is all ooey gooey yummy!
