"Easy and good! after browning on stove top I cooked in the crock pot on low for 4.5 hours with the sauce mixture on top. Placed cheese on top during last 30min in slow cooker."

"I didn't LOVE this recipe the way I have gone nuts for some one the other stuff on this website, but my husband asks for it at least once a week. It is not awful to me, just not a whole lot of flavor."
