Put your slow cooker to use in a hearty stew with a twist--cheesy tortellini added near the end of the cooking time.
Use one cup of sliced celery in place of the fennel.
To trim prep time, use washed baby spinach leaves. Select the small quantity needed for this stew from the grocery store salad bar.
