Very tasty and easy recipe ... I used my favourite spaghetti sauce that is full of flavour ... thank you for sharing this recipe :) xo

bland recipe. an insult to a great italian dish. needs more, more, more to make it authentic. this recipe is for people with no real taste for a great, traditional dish!!

Well, IF it needs soooo much more, why didn't you tell us WHAT more it needs instead of just criticizing the recipe and other peoples' tastes??

Going to try this as it sounds great. Wish there was a picture to go with it though!

Again...the slo-cooker RULES!! Delicious and no browning!!

it's great
