Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce II

Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce II


"This sauce tastes best when slow cooked on low. I don't know the exact measurements for spices -- it's a use your own taste type. I mix up the ingredients the night before, and then before I go to work in the morning I set the slow cooker on low. When I get home it's ready."

I used Italian herb tomato sauce instead of the plain puree. I also added about twice the amount of sugar required. While browning the meat I added the Italian seasoning to it as well as some fr...
