All Day Spaghetti Sauce

There is NOTHING like smelling pasta sauce simmering all day in your Slow Cooker!!!  HEAVEN!!!!!  MMmmmmmmm!  One of the biggest benefits of Slow Cooking is smelling what you're cooking all day!

I was thrilled when Kim sent me this recipe idea!  Why didn't I think of it?!  LOL  Maybe because I'm just a busy mom!  Who knows?!  This sauce was very good!  The more I ate it, the more it grew on me.  I would definitely make a couple changes to it, but of course, I've done that below so that yours tastes even better than mine! ;)  That's just how I roll!  LOL

I would like to thank Kim for inspiring me to make this sauce with her mom's recipe!  I only added to it! I will post the original recipe below in case you don't want to mess with perfection!

Kim's Grandma's Spaghetti Sauce:
1.5 lbs. ground hamburger
3 Packets French's Spaghetti Sauce mix
2 small cans tomato paste
3 cups water
Salt, pepper, fresh garlic

Now, here's mine!

All Day Spaghetti Sauce

1.5 lbs. Ground Sirloin, UNCOOKED!!!!!
1 16oz. can Tomato Paste
1 large heirloom tomato, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
3 packets Spaghetti Sauce Mix
4 cups water
3-4 tsp. garlic powder (use a couple fresh cloves if you have it!)
2-3 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1-2 tsp. oregano

Mix together the tomato paste, spaghetti sauce mix, garlic powder, salt, pepper, oregano and water.
Add the tomatoes and onions and give a little stir.

Next, crumble the ground sirloin on top.

I just kind of stirred gently after this just to get the meat under the liquid.
Cook on LOW for 7-8 hours.
Serve with your favorite pasta.  I always add Parmesan on top!

  1. I made this sauce last week and froze the leftovers, thawed one package out tonight and it might have tasted even better. Our family of four got three meals out this recipe. Yum!
