From Scratch: Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce

Slow Cooker Spaghetti Sauce

I use my slow cooker year round but especially love it in the summer when I can prepare easy meals and keep my house cool as well!  One recipe that’s loved year-round here is my slow cooker spaghetti sauce.  I just made a double-batch this week and brought it (along with a garlic loaf) over to a friend’s house who had just been blessed with twin baby boys!  It was a hit there too – and that’s one of the best things about it, if you make a huge batch there’s plenty to share and freeze for later too.

The recipe below is for a single batch – what you see above is a double batch in a 5qt slow cooker.  I need a bigger slow cooker for my big cooking days!

Serves: 4-6
  • 1lb hamburger
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • ½ cup diced green pepper
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms or 1 can sliced mushrooms
  • 2 16oz cans of stewed tomatoes
  • 1 5.5 oz can of tomato paste
  • 1 13oz can tomato sauce

  1. Brown and drain hamburger.
  2. Place hamburger in the slow cooker, stir in the stewed tomatoes, tomato paste and tomato sauce.
  3. Add in the remaining ingredients.
  4. Cover and cook on low all day or even just a few hours - the longer the better!
  5. This recipe doubles well and freezes well too! Don't be concerned about the exact sizes of cans of sauce/tomatoes, I always use what size I happen to have on hand!
