My Very Best Spaghetti Sauce

READY IN: 10hrs 30mins
Recipe by HeidiSue

I've been working on this one for awhile and it's finally just how we like it. It's a little spicy and a little sweet. If you like it less spicy just omit the crushed red pepper flakes, you can always add some in later if you want to spice it up a bit. Cook time is maximum amount on low in the crockpot.

This sauce recipe is fantastic! It will replace the standard sauce recipe I have been using. The hub and I had this recipe after a day of hiking and could not get enough. Just the right amount of sweet and spicy. I made a few modifications - a half pound of ground mild Italian sausage instead of links, 1/4 cup of sugar only and 1-2 tsp kosher salt. Thank you!
