    This recipe is fabulous! I omitted the sugar and because I couldn't quite get my act together this morning (lol :)) cooked it on HIGH for 3 hours. I loved the mushrooms in it! I will definitely make this again. I served it with Recipe #33944 and it went together perfectly. This recipe does make a TON of sauce, I think next time I might cut in half but I will enjoy it again & again. Thank you so much for sharing - it's a keeper!

    I followed Rita's suggestion of first sauteing the onions, garlic and mushrooms, with some thyme. Because I love the combination of leeks with onions and garlic, I also added 2 leeks. I added salt and freshly ground black pepper, oregano, marjoram, rosemary, sage and a bit more thyme, and I used Aldi's Italian tomatoes. This such an easy recipe, and it was great to be able to just add the meatballs - I made diner524's Recipe #304666 - and forget about the whole dish. I do love good crockpot recipes. This is a really easy and flavoursome spaghetti sauce: I'll be making this again and again! Both to eat right away and to put in the freezer. I particularly love the fact that there is no tomato paste or other ingredients full of chemicals in this. Thank you again, MsSally, for a really fabulous recipe. Made for Every "DAY" Is A Holiday!

    This sauce is really good, although I am not used to the sweetness of it that the sugar brings. I think next time I'll put in a little less sugar

    This turned out good and was easy to prepare. It seemed to be missing something though, I'll have to keep experimenting to kick it up a touch. I added a chopped green pepper to it and used it for lasagna. Thanks for posting.

    I sauteed the onions, garlic and mushroom like Rita did. Since I didn't have Italian spices, I used 1 tbs of oregano, 1 tbs of thyme, 1 tbs of basil. The taste is very good. Thanks MsSally :) Made for 123 hit wonders.


<p>First, I'd like thank everyone who reviews my recipes. I can't thank each of you personally although I try. <br /><br />I Live in central Virginia, 5 miles from where I grew up, w/ my Husband of 17 years and my beautiful daughter. She is 10 and is the joy of my life. We waited for a long time to be blessed with a child and it is the best thing I've ever done. Be a mother. <br /><br />I love to cook. We eat very healthy, after a life altering experience at 31 I've been on a journey to be healthy and lose weight.&nbsp; I've lost 50 lbs and have kept most all of it off for the last 9 years. There are always fluxs, durring stressful times, but I've mananged to keep most of the weight off.&nbsp; My best advice to anyone trying to lose weight is to remember that it didn't get there overnight and it won't come off overnight. I've never said I was on a diet. It is a lifestyle.</p> <p>When Zaar first changed to Food I took a short hiatus. I was going thru a very hard time in life and was completely unmotivated to do anything and thus gave up my hosting duties on Holiday Tag.&nbsp; But now with a new perspective I'm hoping to get back to cooking and tagging.</p> <p><br /><br />Things I've participated in..... <br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Participation.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><img src=http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/ParticipationBanner.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><a href=http://s10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/Game%20Room%20Banners/Football%20Pool%202008/?action=view?t=FootballPoolWk4.gif target=_blank><img src=http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/Game%20Room%20Banners/Football%20Pool%202008/FootballPoolWk4.gif border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PACfall08partic.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v726/annacia/pt-shutterbug-banner-1.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/Kaffee-sticker.jpg alt=/ /><img src=http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v204/derf16/food%20photography%20series/MuffinLovesticker.jpg alt=/ /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/Other/photo-swap-7sticky.jpg alt=/ /> <img src=http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q23/vseward/Bevy/officialmemberofthebevtaggame.jpg alt=/ /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/personal/FRENCH-foodfun.jpg alt=/ /><img src=http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/1956/holidaylightssticker.jpg alt=/ /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/untitled.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg border=0 alt=Photo /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/pacbanner.jpg border=0 alt=Photo /><img src=/ alt= /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg border=0 alt=PAC /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo /><img src=http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/1535/cheesesticker.jpg alt=/ /> <br /><br />And in honor of my mother and in rememberence of my sister in law. <br /><img src=http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/TasteofYellow.jpg alt=/ /></p>
