This sauce was hearty, meaty, and flavorful...mixed with the tortellini, it made a satisfying meal that I will make again very soon! It was really easy, too. There's a bunch of allrecipeeps out there giving this recipe high marks, but they've changed it all up! I made it AS IS (minus the mushrooms) and thought it was a keeper. Also, even though it doesn't HAVE to be done in a crockpot, I found that it created waaayy less dirty dishes this way AND I could come home to a ready-made-meal (plus, it makes your house smell like a authentic Italian kitchen!) If you don't have a lot of time, it definately doesn't have to cook so long, but the point is that it CAN cook all day if you have the time :) Lastly, for those of you looking to skip the jarred sauce...you can replace it with a little can of tomato paste and 16 oz of crushed tomatoes, add your own seasoning (plus the other ingredients) and voila! Of course, this way you must cook the full 7 or 8 hours to get the sauce done right.
