That does sound really good! Would you serve a simple veggie on the side, though?

Next time I cook it I'm going to put chicken on top of the mixture and cover it with spag. sauce.

Okay, I'll admit I was skeptical. But it turns out that this dish tastes pretty darned good!! :)

I have a bag of russets that I'm trying to use up, so I sliced and diced some into the crock pot and added two jars of homemade ground turkey pasta sauce. It was almost 10p by the time I was ready to add the cheese, so I just took a quick taste, but I was pleasantly surprised! I will definitely be making this again in the future!

I'm always looking for something different and affordable to fix. Sounds like a new meal this week and I have some Italian sausage. Thanks for the post.

It only took me about four hours. Once the potatoes are cooked, the cheese melts really quickly.

Very comfort food - warm and starchy. :) I wouldn't skimp on the quality of spaghetti sauce, because it contributes so much to the taste.

I used a meat sauce, and it definitely lent some texture to the dish. If I had used straight marinara, I don't think I would have liked it. But then, I'm really picky about texture in my food. Possibly, zucchini or mushroom, or some other veggie would do the same thing, and then the dish could be vegetarian (although not vegan, unless you find some non-dairy cheese).

I made a mini batch for myself. 4 potatoes with just over a half jar of Aldis plain spaghetti sauce in my little 2 quart crock. It ran 8 hours on low during the workday. I bet you could play around adding a variety root veggies and it would still taste as good. They aren't the prettiest things in the world, but they made an enjoyable dish :)

I sliced up five potatoes, dumped two quarts of pasta sauce on top, and let it cook. About a cup of mozzarella.

For single serving, I got about eight portions.

:bump: these were mentioned today, and I thought I'd bump up the recipe for anyone searching for it.

I never did try these before, but I have potatoes I need to use up, so maybe I'll make them tomorrow or Thurs.
