Great Value Brand Easy Crockpot Alfredo Tortellini: {Sponsored by Walmart}

Thank you, Walmart, for sponsoring this post.  All opinions are mine.  Affiliate links are used in this post and I can be rewarded with a small commission paid to me by Walmart when the links are used and a purchase is made.  Thanks for your support!

I cannot believe we are halfway through September already. We have been busy doing ALL THE THINGS high school entails and things are only going to be more hectic when track and club volleyball season get going. After school activities will soon dictate my nights and I will be playing taxi to and from events. I always try to simplify things when I can, so it just makes sense to let someone else do the grocery shopping for me!  This is where my good friend, Walmart, comes into play.  I have used their grocery pickup and delivery services for a few years now and it has saved me so much time and money!  It is amazing how much we were spending on stuff we didn't need just because we would see it while grocery shopping.  Now I stick to my list while saving money and time!  If you haven't used their services, now is a great time to start. New customers can use code TRIPLE10 to take $10 off a purchase of $50 or more.  Restrictions/fees apply.

Since we had a busy week of Homecoming festivities last week, I wanted to keep this week low key and easy.  I came across a version of this tortellini alfredo recipe on TikTok a few months ago and it has become one of my go to, super easy, crockpot favs!  It made it on this week's menu so I thought I would share it with you today.

Since we are just a little family of 2, I make a much smaller portion than a large family would make, but Walmart's Great Value brand offers different size options for most ingredients. I shopped online and did an order pick up then returned home to throw everything in my crockpot.  My total was under $25 and I still have enough for another meal and have leftover ingredients!  The Great Value brand offers such great quality products, but their prices are so reasonable.  It is nice to have a budget friendly, quality option in today's economy where everything seems to be going up.  As a vegetarian household, I also love that they have started offering a ton of options that work for my daughter and me!  As a single mom, I appreciate their easy meal solutions on a budget. 

Now for the good stuff...Tortellini Alfredo! This stuff is delicious and so easy! 

Shopping List...

Great Value Frozen Tortellini (larger size available for larger families)

Great Value Alfredo Sauce (larger size available for larger families)

Great Value Parmesan Cheese

Great Value Garlic Powder

Great Value Italian Seasoning

Great Value Italian Style Cheese

The great thing about this recipe is you can customize it to your family's liking.  Switch it up by using marinara instead of alfredo. Add in a protein like grilled chicken or Italian sausage. Use chopped tomatoes or spinach to jazz it up a bit. The possibilities are endless!  The Great Value Brand has everything you need and can be ordered online for pick up or delivery!

In my crockpot, I combined half of the smaller bag of tortellini, half of the jar of alfredo sauce, 3/4 cup grated Italian cheese, a dash of garlic, a dash of pepper and a dash of Italian seasoning.  Make sure to make proper adjustments for a larger batch.

I cooked on high for 90 minutes, stirring occasionally.  You can also cook on low for 4-5 hours depending on the settings of your crockpot and the amount you are making. 

Once finished, top with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese and enjoy.  It's the perfect fall comfort food!

We like to pair our pasta with a simple salad and some garlic cheese bread to make a complete meal.  The one thing I forgot to add to my online order was a bag of lettuce so we skipped the salad this time.  We did make some simple garlic cheese bread, but also love these garlic bread sticks and eat them frequently with meals. 

For my super simple garlic bread, I use hamburger buns.  Just butter them and add some garlic powder, pop in a toaster oven on the medium toast setting.  Once they are toasted, add some Italian style grated cheese and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese and bake on 350 until the cheese is melted.  I then broil for a few minutes to get the cheese nice and bubbly.  It is so good!


What is your go to, easy to throw in the crockpot favorite recipe?  I would love to hear!

Whatever happens to be on your menu this week, make sure to simplify your grocery shopping by taking advantage of Walmart's pick up and delivery service!  They have everything you need and all their quality, store brands will help you stretch your budget to the max!
