    This really was sooo easy and really yummy! I added ricotta to the pasta sauce for a little extra something. I think next time I will use more than 2 c of pasta sauce and use the oven instead of the slow-cooker since the edges of the noodles ended up crispy... - 2/8/09

  • using ricotta would mean needing more water to keep the noodles moist.
    I imagine alot of the sodium comes from the canned sauce (opt for homemade instead) and the cheese (harder to find a way around that) - 10/18/10

    It makes 6 servings so one would be 269.5 calories. I will try to get this corrected.
