I came across this easy recipe on Meet the Sullivans and couldn't wait to try it out! :-)
Spaghetti isn't Nate's favorite pasta but he did enjoy this meat sauce which makes eating the spaghetti tolerable to him!
Thank goodness, since this is such a quick go to recipe for week night meals! :-)
This pasta sauce is also easy to freeze which would be great to give to new moms or just to keep in the freezer for a hectic week!
Slow Cooker Pasta Sauce
1 pound ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
1 bay leaf
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 to 2 teaspoons dried basil
1 to 2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 to 1 teaspoon dried thyme
Hot cooked spaghetti
In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.
Transfer to a 3-qt. slow cooker. Add the next 9 ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours or until heated through. Discard bay leaf. Serve with spaghetti. Yield: 6-8 servings.
(you can also double this recipe and freeze the leftovers in ziplock freezer bags for an easy dinner in the future!)
