This was very easy and very yummy. I cut the recipe in half and put it in my 2.5Q slow cooker. We used Chardonnay that I had picked up fairly cheap. Instead of Italian sausage I used a prosciutto sausage, which I don't recommend (it didn't cook well). I also subbed out yellow squash instead of zucchini. Because my slow cooker is super weird, I put the potatoes and sausage in with all the wet ingredients and the salt and pepper. After about an hour and a half or so, I put in the yellow squash, green pepper and onion. This way those veggies wouldn't turn to mush. I let that cook for another hour and a half, and it was done (all done on "low")! It was very yummy. I served it with pull-apart garlic bread.

This recipe was very good, easy & nutritious. I had picked up Italian Sausage at the grocery & looked for a recipe to fit what I had. I made it today for dinner.Of course, I never do things exactly by the recipe. . . . Deleted the peppers, added diced tomatoes at the table & leftovers, used both wine & broth as I made 2 1/2 x the recipe for most of the ingredients above. I added a little fennel. I will add the garlic suggested by others the next time.I used my electric pressure cooker to brown the sausage then added everything else. I had put it on "slow-cook" mode for about an hour when I realized I needed it to cook faster as our schedule changed. I locked down the pressure cooker lid & used a "preset" time of 35 minutes. (I'm still learning my pressure cooker. Next time, I will only do 15.) I had a full pot and leftovers for another 4 servings. I will definitely make this again!

This recipe was great. I also added garlic to the pan with the sausage. Did half the recipe for my husband and I. My husbands only complaint was that there wasn't enough sausage. The zucchini and peppers were a bit mushy. Might be a good idea to wait a couple hours into cooking to add them.

Excellent ! Now if I can only remember to make this in the winter. I, too, would add garlic next time when browning the Italian Sausage . . . it seemed to be missing "a little something".

My husband loved it. Said it was a keeper. I added spaghetti sauce to it half way thru the cooking time.
