Servings: 6 bowls

In a skillet over medium heat, break up and brown the sausage. Cook just until it is broken up and browned, no need to cook it through. Drain the grease from the pan.
Combine the browned sausage, carrots, garlic, basil, oregano, salt, pepper, crushed tomatoes, and chicken stock in a crock pot. Cook on low for 3 and a half hours.
After three and half hours, turn your crock pot to high and add the tortellini and cook on high for a half hour. After 15 minutes, on high add the spinach.
Just before serving when the tortellini is done and the spinach is wilted, stir in the half and half.
