Another great recipe for the slow cooker! I'm always thinking of ways to take everyday recipes to my slow cooker. Dinner time seems to be a combination of the witching hour for kids and a stressful time for mom and dad as they are coming home from a long day at work. Everyone needs those one pot meals where you throw everything in and forget about it. This is a flavorful meat-sauce that cooks all day and you don't need to be home to stir it. Just come home to dinner being (almost) done!!! Serve it over pasta with a green salad and Enjoy!
Slow Cooker Meat Sauce
1/4 lb sausage and 1 lb lean ground beef, cooked and drained
2 medium onions chopped
1 green pepper chopped
4 cloves of garlic minced
2 tablespoons of sugar (this is to cut the acidity of the tomatoes)
1 tablespoon of salt
2 tablespoons of dried basil
2 (16 ounce) cans of Italian style tomatoes, diced or smashed up
1 (6 ounce) can of tomato paste
Add all the ingredients to your slow cooker and stir well. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4-6 hours. Serve over your favorite pasta with a green salad for a complete meal.
