This was good and easy to make. I had a pound of precooked burger in the freezer which made this even quicker to make for dinner. I used 12 ounces of pot pie bows as that is what I had on hand. I used 3 8 ounce cans of tomato sauce. I started with 2 cups of water but ending up adding about a cup more. I also added a boullion cube, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, the 1/4 teaspoon of pepper, the onions and peppers and the worcestershire sauce. I didn't add the mushrooms. We all enjoyed this. I topped mine with parmesan cheese.
I also found this recipe who knows where years and ago, then lost it. Glad to have it back... This is a great stand-by when you don't feel like making a mess. Cooks in one pan, easy and delicious. I used 1 8oz can of tomato sauce, and 1 12 oz can chopped tomatoes with sauce and 1/2 cup of ketchup. After cooking stovetop, I covered the top with grated cheddar cheese and browned it under the broiler. Served with corn niblets. Voila, Dinner !!!

<p>We are full time RV'ers & live in our 5th Wheel Montana. We have been on the road for 3 years and are currently in Arizona. Our newest hobby is quad riding in AZ. <img title=Cool src=/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-cool.gif border=0 alt=Cool /> So I'm always on the look out for slow cooker recipes.<br />I don't think I could pick just one cookbook from all the ones I have. I do like to experiment with cooking and often embellish on recipes that I find. My big peeve is people who chew with their mouths open & smack their lips.</p>
