      This was good and easy to make. I used a pound and a half of sweet sausage. I then used a 14 ounce bag of frozen red and green peppers with onions. I cooked this all up and the added the sauce. I then put the mixture in the crockpot. I used mozzarella cheese. We all enjoyed these.

      Got rave reviews from all members of the family. I made a mistake and added the 1/2 cup of cheese at the same time as the pasta sauce. Seemed to work ok, just made the stirring a bit sticky. I used hot italian sausage and french rolls. Thanks so much for sharing.

      Easy, peazy, lemon squeezy! I used a ciabatta roll, as I had it on hand, and I skipped the peppers out of personal preference. That said, this was yummy and so easy; I did use hot italian sausage, for a little bit of heat. Thanks so much for sharing a fab recipe, Lori Mama!
