Italian Crock Pot Stew

I have to tell you guys about this fabulous recipe that I "invented", I say that loosely.  I took a recipe and made a ton of changes to it and it turned into something new!

*  1 jar marinara sauce (regular jar size)
*  2 cups water
*  1 pound fresh mushrooms
*  2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
*  1 can Italian stewed tomatoes
*  1 pound ground beef
*  1/2 pound turkey breakfast sausage
*  1/2 pound pork breakfast sausage
* 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
*  1 1/2 cups cooked mini bowtie pasta

Add first five ingredients to a crock pot.

Brown meats in a large pan, drain and then add to the crock pot.  Let it cook for 6 hours.  Sprinkle the cheese on top, cover and let cook until the cheese is melted.

Seriously its yummy guys!  I'll take some pictures of it tomorrow when I eat it for lunch!  The lighting is much better during the day.  :)

My kids ate this up!  There's just enough flavor without being too spicy for the littles.
