Reviews for Hearty Italian Roast with Alfredo Potatoes
"This was pretty good but I can't say outstanding. I did like the convenience of the crockpot, it was just a little bland for our taste."
"This was so easy to throw together and then, like the intro says "let the crockpot dO the work!!" I loved the flavor that the italian dry seasoning mix impacted on the roast, and the alfrdo pottoes were to die for!The only thing I did differently was to cook my roast on the high setting for three hours and then I turned it down to low for 2 hours. It came out perfect! I can't believe this hasn't been rated yet.......it is one AWESOME recipe!!!!"
