Slow Cooking Thursday - Meat Sauce for Spaghetti


Good morning my friends :)

Slow Simmered Meat Sauce for Spaghetti

1 lb lean ground beef
1/2 lb bulk Italian pork sausage
1 medium onion, chopped
1 medium green pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 cup finely chopped carrot
1 can (28 oz) crushed tomatoes, undrained
1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
1 can (6 oz) tomato paste
1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
3 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
16 oz uncooked spaghetti
Shredded Parmesan cheese, if desired

The recipe calls for you to first brown the beef and the sausage, but I skipped that step.

In a slow cooker, mix beef, sausage and all remaining ingredients except spaghetti and Parmesan cheese.

Cover; cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours.

About 20 minutes before serving, cook and drain spaghetti as directed on package. Serve sauce over spaghetti and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

This recipe sounds great! I use my slow cooker weekly, but have never made a sauce in it. I think it's about time I did and this recipe sounds perfect. TFS!

It sounds yummy. I love my slow cooker and I adore your blog. I've been reading for a long time, but I just started my own blog and I'm so excited to be linking up!

I had to change my blog URL due to a typo so my pumpkin purée link is no good now! It is still available on my blog, just follow the link for my homemade pumpkin butter and it'll be there!
