  • To cut the acidity a bit you can stir in one to two tablespoons of cream, this is optional but does help the flavors work together nicely

    I tried this and it was so good. We didn’t have spicy marinara sauce or fire roasted tomatoes so i just added 1-2 tbs chilli flakes. I personally don’t think the cream made much difference. I cooked it on the stovetop for 45 minutes and had it with rice instead of pasta. This was so simple and easy (I did nothing but measure) and it turned out so delicious !! It’s definitely one of those recipes I’m reserving for when I’m sick or need a pick me up.Thank you!

  2. I have just bought slow cooker 😀 and I found your blog.What an interesting coincidence! Many thánk for sharing your recipes. 5 star for this recipe 😀

    1. Hi Bonnie! Yes, that should be fine. Just keep an eye it so that you can adjust the cooking time. My guess would be frozen will take about the same amount of time as dried, and fresh will be quicker. Let me know how it turns out!!

  3. Yes – this is the ONE! beef soup awesome blog and pics. GO ROYALS!!! Love Beef soup…cannot wait to try this one out.

  4. I own a slow cooker, but really 8-9 hours waiting for dinner. Not everyone is out all day to business. I have a couple of very heavy ceramic/porcelean pots and love them on top of the stove. I think every time a recipe is posted for a slow cooker, it should also have the required hours for skillet stove top one pot wonders. Does anyone know of the length of time this recipe needs to be converted to stop top. Thanks. The recipe sounds good, but can’t rate it until I cook it.

    1. rockingirls.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/conversion-chart.jpg mthis is a conversion chart, I haven’t used it so can’t contest to its being correct or not. I found it by typing conversion chart for a slow cooker.

    2. 5 stars
      REALLY, There are a ton of sites that give you a conversion chart, how about getting the information with a little searching on your part. The recipe clearly states that it is a SLOW COOKER RECIPE.

  5. Both my husband and I are meat lovers. Going to try this soon! Would you recommend this as a “freezer meal”?

    1. Hi Bonnie! You guys will love this! Yes, you could totally put the meat, spaghetti sauce, tomatoes and seasonings in a freezer bag. Remove the air and seal it up. Thaw it out, add it to the slow cooker with the broth and follow the rest of the instructions from there. Let me know if you do this!
