Crockpot Spaghetti Sauce – recipe

January 2, 2009

This is part of my Monthly Menu, which you can find Here

Crockpot Spaghetti Sauce
(serves 10)

2 cans tomato sauce
2 cans tomato paste
2 cans diced tomatoes
1.5 lbs fresh sausage (we get ours at the butcher shop)
1 small red onion
4 cloves garlic or 2 TB garlic
1 bag frozen spinach
4 carrots grated
1 zucchini grated
.5 lb diced mushrooms
1 can sliced olives
1/4 tsp anise seed
1/2 tsp basil
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp majoram
1/4 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp rosemary
(I make my own Italian seasoning and I just use 1 1/2 tsp of that)

Place everything in the crockpot, making sure the sausage is either in meatballs or smooshed into the sauce as fine as possible for meat sauce. Stir well and let cook for 4-6 hours on med.  stirring occasionally.
Add another 1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning

I use this recipe in Wacky Mac (which is basically this sauce with Tinkyada’s spiral veggie dyed noodles as before we were GF we bought noodles called ‘Wacky Mac’ and the boys loved that WAY more than spaghetti). I also use this recipe in Lasagna, and Spaghetti and meatballs. It’s also something that freezes well, either in jars, bags, or freezer containers. Great for popping out and thawing on those nights you don’t feel like cooking (or at my house, those nights that your honey is cooking LOL)
