"Husband said it's a keeper. I added mushrooms and black olives. Sub 1/2 lb sausage for 1/2 lb burger. Only used 2 1/2 cups pasta. All else the same. Great recipe!"

"A very quick and easy meal. I substituted salsa for the tomato sauce and added some pizza seasoning to the ground beef as it cooked."

"I did not use the pepperoni. Instead I followed the suggestion of substituting pork in its place. It was delicious."

"Good, but to me it just tasted like a basic pasta and meat sauce. The cheese melted into the ground beef so it really wasn't noticeable or able to be tasted by the time the whole thing heated. Definitely wouldn't call this Pizza in a Pot."

"I made this today. I added our favorite pizza topping in 1/2 cup measures. Mushrooms, sliced green olives, bacon. I also added the el dente pasta near the end of the slow cooker process. About 20 minutes before we were ready to eat.

Fabulous recipe idea. Thanks!"

"I've made this wonderful recipe for parties. People attack it like hungry sharks, then stand around scraping the crockpot for every last bit of cheese. I always use Italian cheese blend for more flavor. Also, I suggest that you definitely cook the pasta very al dente, because sometimes it can get mushy. Mushy or not, this recipe goes fast!"
