- sliced mushrooms (etc.) (optional) or onion (etc.) (optional)
- Layer half of each ingredient in the order listed.

WOW!!! That covers it all for this snazzy little dish! Couldn't be easier to toss together and perk along in the crock till supper time...Followed your directions, and, of course, used your wonderful spaghetti sauce...It came out terrific!! Thanks for a great recipe, Robin...I'll be doing this one again!! Laudee
Tasty and easy dish! I halved everything but the sauce(used about 26oz) and used sausage as the meat and only mushrooms of the 'optional' ingredients. Hubby and I both loved it! Our house smelled wonderful when we got home from church and it was great to have a meal already prepared! Thanks for a great recipe, Robin! Editing to say that I made this again, used uncooked noodles and added 1.5 cups of water and it came out perfectly with less work!(=
4.5. This is a great fast meal. One that comes together quickly and greets you with a great aroma when you come home 5 hours later. This is a stew type pasta dish consistency wise. It is layered so there is not a ton of sauce upon serving. If you know that going in it won't be a surprise. We used optional add ins of onion, mushrooms, and Italian seasoning. We also only used on 3.5 oz pepperoni because that is all we had. (I grabbed the wrong package.) But next time I wouldn't change a thing. Tastes great feeds a family of five or six. Thanks for posting a Robin. We will add it to the crockpot and fast dinner rotation.
