Mushroom-Beef Spaghetti Sauce

READY IN: 6hrs 20mins
Recipe by Boomette

A recipe from the Taste of Home cookbook. It's very yummy. It can be made in the crockpot but I made it on the stove-top. You can add some bell pepper and other veggies to make it chunkier.

Delicious sauce, will become my standard recipe! I tripled the recipe to put some away in the freezer for future use, and the only alteration I did was add a head of garlic...couldn't quite believe garlic wasn't already called for, but it's not quite Italian if there's not garlic in it. I rate the recipe as written, but this was 5 stars when I was done. People were eating it with no noodles by the end of the night lol.
