Meat-Lover's Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce
This recipe is an old standard but is very tasty. Anyone can tweak it by exchanging sugar for sugar substitute, as well as adding a pinch of dried red pepper and two dashes of regular hot sauce, like Red Hott or your favorite brand, which will give a pleasant background but not overtaking the great taste of the sauce. Once your tomato product is in your cooking device, then go ahead and add what seasonings you like as well as the sugar. All additions should be added immediately after the tomato products are in.
As Ashley suggests, placing the sausage into the sauce does add a great flavor. This can be done by adding the sausage, whole in casings, directly into the sauce letting the sausage cook within the sauce and sharing it's flavors throughout the sauce. IF you use the sausage, I would question using the beef as well as you take away from the original sauce flavor and overpower it with the meats battling it out for the distinctive flavor, which should always the the sauce first, meat as a compliment to the sauce.
Either way you choose, it's a delicious sauce and well worth the time to wait until it's thoroughly cooked.
