This was my first attempt at homemade (at least not from a jar!) spaghetti sauce, and it turned out very nice and made quite a bit! I used only 1/2 lb beef and supplemented with finely diced zucchini and extra onion to make up for the missing bulk. I also used a 28-oz can of tomatoes and 1/2 can hatch green chiles instead of Rotel. I wasn't sure if I should drain the tomatoes or not so I didn't; next time I probably will. OH, and I threw the whole thing in the crock pot for about 4 hours on high, which worked out fine. Next time I will probably stir in some cheese at the end of cooking to take the edge off the tomato-yness, but otherwise I have no complaints. Thanks so much for posting. Made for PRMR.
