Tuscan Pot Roast

READY IN: 4hrs 30mins
Recipe by MsKittyKat

Excellent dish for a wintry night. Cooking it in a slow-cooker makes it easy. Put it on and head out to sled, skate or build a snowman. My mom used to make this for us every winter.

Excellent-- I really enjoyed the flavors. A great alternative to my usual brown beefy pot roast. This is a keeper.
