Slow Cooker Italian Spaghetti Sauce

a Courtney favorite! from Betty Crocker.

2 pounds bulk Italian sausage or ground beef

3 medium onions, chopped

2 cups sliced mushrooms (I leave these out)

6 cloves garlic, pressed

2 (14 1/2 oz) cans diced tomatoes, undrained

1 (29 oz) can tomato sauce (I add a little more tomato sauce, 1 – 2 of the small cans in addition to the large one)

1 (12 oz) can tomato paste

2 tablespoons dried basil leaves

1 tablespoon dried oregano leaves

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper

Cook meat, onion, mushrooms and garlic until meat is no longer pink.  Pour meat in crock pot and stir in remaining ingredients.  Cook on low for 8 – 9 hours.

  1. I won’t ever order spaghetti at a restaurant because I know it will not taste nearly as good as your sauce and I will just be disappointed.
