Jeanne's Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce

Jeanne's Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce

"This recipe has many vegetables and three kinds of meat. Most people can't tell it's not all beef and I've been told I ought to market it. This sauce has no acidic after taste, which is frequent with sauces that have tomato and/or bell pepper cooked over long periods of time. This sauce freezes well and can be used for other recipes."

Considering the time this recipe takes to make, and the outcome (more like goulash and not quite spicy enough), I wouldn't make it again. Not bad, just not what I had expected.

So much work. So not worth it. Spaghetti Sauce should have some spice to it, this did not. Very disappointed.

I have to say this sauce was tasty!!! A great base recipe to modify to your own tastes. I thought it was a little too chunky, but my husband thought it was perfect. "More meat next time" is a...

Wonderful! We made several batches and froze. We will make even more sauce this year because we absolutely love this recipe.

Yummy! For the meat requirements, I used 1/2 pound of ground turkey and 1 pound of Italian chicken sausage (instead of ground beef and kielbasa). I used zucchini instead of yellow squash, and ...
