So, do you just smash the garlic cloves and leave them be when you put them in the recipe? I know most people mince them, but just smashing them would save me some time and keep the garlic from infusing my fingers with so much aroma. Can you tell me how much dried thyme to use in your dish?

Hi SissieSass, I'd go with 1 teaspoon of dried thyme instead of the 2 fresh sprigs. - Natalie, Editor of AllFreeSlowCookerRecipes

I'm not really a fan of "Ragu," but this recipe sounds enticing. It's definitely something to test out!
