My Crock Pot Spaghetti Sauce

This is a spaghetti sauce recipe that has been developed over time. My crock pot is my best friend at times when I’m having busy days at work but still want a decent meal on the table for my family.

This recipe is for a 4 quart crock pot, halve it if your pot is smaller.

You may alter the ground meat as you please; sometimes I use all ground beef when I find a good sale but half beef/half pork is pretty tasty.

I serve spaghetti with crusty bread and a romaine salad.
