"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." — KINGJN

onion, finely chopped
2 (28 ounce) cans
2 (6 ounce) cans
salt to taste
Ver nice and thick although I did add a bit more sugar, a chopped green pepper and basil and oregano. The family all liked it and I will definately make it again.
I made this twice and each time I tasted a "burnt" flavor. Not too sure any tomato sauce is meant for the slow cooker.
My slow cooker is large and I used 2 lbs of ground beef and added 1 large can of diced tomatoes, just cutting back on the tomato sauce. I also do not have a low setting for 4 hours, but cooked it on high for 4 hours and it was fabulous. What a fantastic way to top of spaghetti.
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 fresh ground pepper, salt, and a little bit of cayenne. I added about 1/2 teapsoon of chili powder to the sauce as well. It turned out really well and it's great to freeze the leftovers for a quick meal another day.
Great recipe! Easy and fast. Everyone loved it at our dinner table. About the only thing I will do differently is to let the onions saute a little longer. Try this recipe. I think you'll really enjoy it! Thanks Jenn!
I thought the recipe was great. I added italian sausage and a bay leaf to add some more flavor.
This is a flexible recipe, and a great way to make spaghetti sauce ahead of time to put in quart baggies to freeze. Loved it. Thanks
Recipe creator indicated they didn't know exact measurements for spices, so keeping that in mind, I doubled the amount of Italian seasoning, added more garlic, and also added some beef soup base. Seemed to have a strong taste of the tomato paste, almost bitter.
