Crockpot Wednesday, September 23, 2009

It's Crock Pot Wednesday over at Dining with Debbie! Debbie invited me to join the crock pot recipe sharing at her blog, so I thought I'd share one of my favorite crock pot recipes: Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce.

Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce
1 pound ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1 can(28 oz.) crushed tomatoes (I use Furman's)
1 can (8 oz.) tomato sauce
1 can (6 oz.) tomato paste
1 bay leaf
1 tablespoon brown sugar
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
In a skillet, cook ground beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Transfer to a slow-cooker. Add the next 10 ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours, or until heated through. Discard bay leaf. Serve over your favorite pasta. This sauce also freezes well.


Thank you for stopping by and thanks to Debbie for hosting!
