Grandma's Crock Pot Spaghetti Sauce

READY IN: 12hrs 15mins
Recipe by L DJ3309

Hot Italian sausage is what makes this sauce extraordinary and the slow simmering in the crock pot.

Top Review by Groundhog Gal

This was just OK for me, flavor wasn't bad but it was too watery--I will probably simmer the sauce on the stove to thicken. Don't think I would make this one again as it just doesn't have the thickness or the richness my family looks for with spaghetti sauce. Sorry.
