Here's a great recipe from my sister-in-law. She makes it for us everytime we go up to visit. It is so great to come in from a full day of sight-seeing to a house that smells so good! Now when I make it I freeze the extra for easy leftovers.

Ingredients Nutrition

I followed the recipe using one pound of mild sausage and a pound if ground beef. I did not put mushrooms in it either. My wife and I thought it was incredible. We have plenty of sauce left over and will use it for dipping and possibly as a base sauce for pizza.

Excellent spaghetti sauce. I used 1 1/2 lb ground beef and 1/2 pound Italian sausage. Cooked 6 hours in my slow cooker. Wonderful aroma and flavor. Love the mushrooms. Thanks for sharing this. Will make again, for sure.

Wonderful spaghetti sauce. I chopped the veggies the night earlier. Then in the morning, browned the beef and veggies and poured everything in the crock-pot. When we came back it was smelling great. Thanks nennny :) Made for cookbook tag game
