    Ive tried the Mississippi roast before.. But a tad different. And i used a pork butt in one. We put it on hoagie buns with melted Provolone cheese. I also added onions and green peppers. On the bottom of the bun i put a roasted red pepper. Geez it was good.

    I love several recipes, but was impressed to see that Stuffed Shells could be made in the Crock Pot … who knew ??? Thought the pasta would get too soft but I will try this VERY soon. I really love how Crock Potting has simplified our lives in such a busy world. Thank you !!!
