Crock Pot Spaghetti Sauce

Recipe from: Pat Wissen, recipe exchange

This is a great recipe to throw together before work and then have dinner ready when you get home.

3/4 lbs. Italian Sausage (mild or hot, according to your taste; I use the bulk or you can use the links and remove casing)
1 lbs. ground beef
2 onions
1 large green pepper
2 cloves minced garlic
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 Tbsp. salt
2 tsps. leaf basil
1 tsp. crushed red pepper (more or less to taste)
2, 16 oz. cans tomatoes (petite diced work well)
1, 12 oz. can tomato sauce
1, 12 oz. can tomato paste

  1. Brown Sausage and ground beef. Drain. Place in crockpot.
  2. Chop green pepper and onions (food processor works great to process finely).
  3. Add to crock pot with all remaining ingredients. Mix well. Cook on low for approximately 8 hours.
  4. Sauce may be made 1 to 2 days ahead or you can freeze it. Serve over spaghetti.
