This was delicious and so easy to put together. I followed the directions for the low setting, and then added 1 lb. of frozen raw shrimp about 1 hour before the cooking time was completed. I thought the shrimp would add some protein to make a complete meal. It turned out wonderfully, even though I was considered that the sauce initially seemed to have too much liquid. I added shredded parmesan to finish it. What a delightful dinner we had! Thanks for sharing this.
What a delicious change to my regular pasta sauce. I made as directed with the exception of the olives and we used parmesan cheese. This is sooo easy to make and all you need is a side salad and some garlic bread, if desired. Made for Everyday is a Holiday tag, June, 2014.
