This is my day off, and I am babysitting my 6 & 4 yr. old niece & nephew tomorrow nite. I thought this woul be a great dinner for them. I used gr. italian sausage instead of beef, a 28 oz jar of Prego oringinal sauce, a 19 oz bag of frozen cheese tortellini, minced garlic, the mushrooms and green onions. <br/>Set the crockpot on low @ 10:00am checked on it at 1:30pm and it was done, almost overdone. I don't see how this recipe would take 7-8 hours especially, with me doubling up on everthing except the meat. The flavor is missing something, maybe just a bit of italian seasoning will do the trick. I will add the mozz, tomorrow before serving. All in all a great recipe but , I would suggest , to make on a week end, or a time you are going to be able to check on it, thanks for sharing.

This was delicious! I thought it was a bit spendy so I might try dried tortellini next time. My whole family loved it and gobbled it up. We didn't have any leftovers!

Wow comfort food at its BEST!! We loved this. i had to make a few adjustments. I added so Tabasco sauce, garlic powder, black pepper, and salt. Just b/cuz I felt there could be more of a kick to it. And sure enough it was great. This is filling and could feed a family of six when served with some garlic bread or a salad. Thanks Karen for another great recipe.

karen this was wonderful. Everyone in the family just loved it. The only thing different I did was follow cheryl's advice and used italian sausage which was jimmy dean's. I added more cheese and this was a great, tasty meal that will be used again. Made for karen's cookathon. Get well friend. :)

Great recipe. My family loved it. We aren't mushroom eaters, so omitted it. Otherwise followed as is and it turned out great. Goes good with a cheese/herb bread on the side, using a little extra marina for dipping.
