1
Brown sausage on all sides in a little olive oil; add onions and saute until onions are slightly browned. Slice sausage; place in the crockpot with the onion. Add remaining ingredients; cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours, or 3 to 4 hours on HIGH (you may need a little more water if you cook it on HIGH).

If the sauce is a too thick, add a little more water. I sometimes add an extra tablespoon or 2 of water and a tablespoon of dry Alfredo sauce mix.
