I make this sort of thing regularly but hadn't thought to make it in a crockpot. I ended up putting peppers, onions, Italian hot sausage (links, frozen, no browning or anything beforehand) and some plain chopped tomatoes from a can (not even sauce) into the crockpot. I added a little garlic for flavor. Put it on high at 1pm and at 5pm the whole house smelled wonderful and everything was done. Am going to serve with some spaghetti tonight. Perfect. Love the idea of the crockpot, really should use it more, and if I don't have do do anything but put the stuff from freezer/fridge into the pot and let it go, I'm not sure it could be any easier. YUM.
