I tried this today and was very pleased and so was my DH. Whenever he says to me "you can make this again" I know I just have to give it 5 stars. Thanks for posting ~ :-)

This was a great recipe. My husband was so happy! I also brought what was left over to work the next day. Well, my boss (who was stationed in Aviano AB, Italy for about 4 years) said that this is a true Italian dish. I will be making this again!!! And I was confused also on adding the rolls too, but I didn't.

This was a pretty good recipe, spicy then i thought it would be but i like spicy food :)!! I did do things alittle different....i halfed everything and used 6 sausages (i also cut them up when i put them in the crockpot). It also says to put EVERTHING in the crockpot....does that mean the italian rolls 2?? well i didn't do that, when they were done i served as is, but i put mine on a slice of white bread.
