MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 23, 2014

I changed the recipe up a bit. I used homemade tomato sauce, omitted the green pepper because I didn't have any and added a can of sliced mushrooms plus I used lean ground chicken and mild sausage. I also added my own spices - Italian seasoning, minced garlic, parsley and celery seed. I cooked the sauce all day in the slow cooker on low and added Parmesan cheese to the sauce once it was done.

This is a very easy recipe to make and easy to adapt to the slow cooker. Using the slow cooker method makes it easy for a family on the go. When you get home the sauce is done and you only have to cook the pasta, pour on the sauce, top with cheese and pop it in the oven to brown. Walla, dinner cooked in less than a half hour.

I will definitely make this recipe again.

I did not have any hamburger thawed so used kielbasa and small amount of pepperoni. It was fast and easy to make and used ingredients that I had on hand. Just the kind of recipe I like and my family loved it.

Did not use the sausage, only used 1 pound ground beef and my family enjoyed this very much.

Very quick and easy to make. As well as others I changed recipie a little based on what I had. Add spice that my son loves and went meatless. Also had no tomato sauce so ketchup is all I had. Was actually surprised on how that tasted. Will definitely be making this for my boyfriend when he gets of the road.

This was easy and had a good taste. For personal preference, I added more sauce as other reviewshave mentioned. I also added some parmesan cheese to the top.
