  1. Very good with some minor tweaks to bring it to five star. The Tweaks: Several twists of fresh ground pepper, juice of 1 fresh lemon, 1 tbsp dried basil, 1 tbsp orgeano, optional: sprinkle of fat free mozzerlla cheese with the other cheese. Would take extremely well to Claypot cooking.
  2. Side dish heck! This recipe makes a great main dish with some pasta on the side. I can also see great potential for it just as a jumping off point. I intend to try it with some mushrooms and/or maybe some Italian sausage or some chicken. I may add some crushe red pepper too. And then I could... You get the idea.


I am a mother of three and live in central Pennsylvania. My children were very active in after school activities and found we weren't spending anytime together at meal time. In 1998, I decided to start cooking my dinners in a crockpot so that we could have a home cooked meal together once everyone came home. My children now get so excited to see what we are having to eat and love the smell when they walk in the door. My family calls me the crock pot queen. LOL I use my crock pot everyday of the year. <br> <br>My three children are now in college and before they come home they request their favorite meal. I still continue to cook in the crock pot for my husband and I. It is nice after a long day to know your meal is ready. It also helps in keeping my grocery bill down. With zaar, I can print my shopping list and that is all I purchase is the ingredients on that list. <br> <br>Now, my two daughters have been crock pot cooking while in college. They find it is easy to cook for the themselves and their friends. It is an easy way to have friends over for dinner after classes <br> <br>I still love trying new recipes and purchasing cookbooks, especially crock pot cookbooks. <br> <br>Happy Cooking!
