Expert Tips

Try making this recipe with a shredded Italian cheese blend instead of the mozzarella.

If the Italian sausage has a casing, remove and discard it before you brown the sausage. Stir the sausage frequently during cooking to break it up into small pieces.

For an instant party, set the slow cooker on the counter or buffet table along with a basket of buns. Just add deli salads, pickles, olives and brownies for dessert.
