      Probably wouldn't ruin the sauce, but it would be strange.

      And remember to cook on LOW.

        Your instructions are perfecto. I'd have poured the canned mushrooms into the pot with the water and juices and then, when the sauce wasn't quite right, I'd have felt discouraged.

        Also: cook on LOW. Gotcha!

        I appreciate your taking the time to share your expertise with me. I'm going to make the sauce this week (!!) and I can't wait! Ringraziarla così molto!

          a larger crockpot.

          So if you have a three-quart crock, put three times this stuff into the pot.

          If you try to cook just this much in a larger crock pot you're going to get a burned mess.

          Oh, and ground beef, BROWNED

          means that you have to brown (cook) the meat in a skillet before you put it in the sauce.

          Everything else just goes into the pot.

          And a DASH of a spice means about one-quarter of a one-quarter teaspoon.
