I love my slow cooker and am looking for more ideas. Love this idea but miss having the melted/burned cheese on top that you can achieve in the oven. Also, I seasoned the ground beef heavily (Italian seasoning, crushed fennel seed, salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder, oregano). The cheese mixture was good but needed more seasoning (maybe salt, pepper, dried basil and oregano). The big mistake I made was using cheap sauce. I always make homemade sauces so I don't know much about jars of sauce and what to buy. I figured I would go with the well known brand that starts with an R....since I knew there wouldn't be tomato chunks that my young kids would not like. That sauce is too bland for me. Next time, I'll hopefully find something better or just use my own, frozen, homemade sauce. I think it could use more noodles (maybe add another layer in there??). I think the addition of Italian sausage would be a good one! I just wasn't willing to spend the money on a dish I wasn't sure we'd like. I will definitely make this again, because I just LOVE having dinner complete at the end of a day but I will modify it next time. Lastly, I cooked it on low for 2 hrs and on high for 2. Not anywhere near burned. It could even go a couple of more hours.
