  1. We're on the same wave length! I've just made a beef Sloppy Joe in the slow cooker, with a more Mexican twist. Love this version.

  2. Lydia, can't wait to see your new one. I love turkey Italian sausage, so this sounds great to me.

  3. I tried this last week and loved it. I got it into the crockpot in about 10 minutes on a busy day and was so grateful to have a yummy dinner at the end of the day. Would also be great on spaghetti squash or pasta.

  4. Amy, thanks for sharing you feedback; so glad you enjoyed it!
