Variation
Try making this recipe with a shredded Italian cheese blend instead of the mozzarella.
Success Hint
If the Italian sausage has a casing, remove and discard it before you brown the sausage. Stir the sausage frequently during cooking to break it up into small pieces.
Serve-With
For an instant party, set the slow cooker on the counter or buffet table along with a basket of buns. Just add deli salads, pickles, olives and brownies for dessert.
