Brown sausage in a large skillet over medium heat. Drain on paper towels; set aside. In the same skillet, brown beef with onion, green pepper and mushrooms; drain. In a large slow cooker, combine sauce, sausage, beef mixture and wine, if using; stir. Cover and cook on low setting for 4 hours. Serve sauce over cooked pasta; garnish with cheeses and pine nuts, if desired.
Tip: Make a warm loaf of crostini for dinner...a tasty go-with for pasta. Slice a loaf of Italian bread into 1/2-inch slices. Brush olive oil over both sides of each slice; sprinkle with coarse salt. Bake in a 300-degree oven for 20 minutes, or until toasty, turning once.
"I must say this is the best recipe software I have ever owned."

"I saw lots of recipe software for PC computers but I was having a hard time finding really good mac recipe software. I'm so glad I discovered Cook'n! It's so nice to have all my recipes in a computer recipe organizer. Cook'n has saved me so much time with meal planning and the recipe nutrition calculator is amazing!!!
My favorite is the Cook'n Recipe App.
