This was a very tasty dish and the whole family loved it. We did add extra shrimp. The one problem is the cooking time. After about 5 hours on high I noticed it was almost done. If I had left it for 7 -9 as stated then it would have been mush. I had to turn it off for 2 hours and then proceed as directed with the orzo and shrimp. Keep an eye on this when cooking. Great reheated leftovers.

It was OK - not nearly spicy enough, though, and it lacked the flavor of traditional jambalaya, even after adding extra spices. If I were to make this again, I would add a spicy andouille sausage and a heap of cajun seasoning. I only ancini de pepi, so I served it over the traditional hot white rice instead of orzo. My 4 and 6 year olds ate a good portion.

For a jamabalaya made in a crock pot instead of from scratch with the traditional roux, it's not bad. However, since I'm accustomed to the traditional ways of making Cajun and Creole dishes, I'm probably not going to use this recipe all that often. There just seemed to be something lacking about the flavor. Maybe next time I'll up the amount of Cajun seasoning I used in place of the Italian.
