  • I made this last night for dinner tonight. Do you put the paremesean cheese into the crockpot too? I left it out to serve on top. What is a large can of tomato paste? I used 6ozs and I think it was fine but I also didn't add both cans of Hunts sauce. - 4/28/11

  • This looks wonderful! Note: Most commercial pasta sauces contain high fructose corn syrup or sugar. This does not. Yay! - 9/1/10
