I placed the ingredients in my slow cooker in the order listed. I always use a little water or wine to rinse out my sauce jar, so nothing goes to waste. Then I gently stirred it all together, covered the cooker, & walked away. After 5 hrs, I turned the heat down & cooked my pasta. I always like a little cheese on top.
